#bookreview ~ The Dressmaker of Dachau by Mary Chamberlain

‘You may look like a swan, but if you talk like a sparrow, who will take you seriously? Welcome, Miss Vaughan’

I was lucky enough to receive my copy of The Dressmaker of Dachau from Harper Collins. It is written by Mary Chamberlain and published in 2015 by The Borough Press, an imprint of Harper Collins.

My review is as ever my own opinion and most importantly, an honest one. I do hope you enjoy.

Early One Morning by Virginia Baily – My Review

‘”I want my mamma”, he says. She looks at him. Small, defiant. Orphaned. Her knees buckle, and she puts her hand to the parapet.’

Every so often, it’s nice to just pick up a book that has been sitting in my TBR….waiting!! Early One Morning is one of those books. Written by Virginia Baily and published by Virago Press in 2015, I have been dying to read it. I purchased it a few months back and time escaped me to open it. A suitcase was the perfect opportunity!!

I hope you enjoy my review of this truly beautiful book.

The Testament of Vida Tremayne by Sarah Vincent – My Review

‘You can’t ignore the Muse. When she comes at whatever time of day or night, you must welcome her in and allow her to lead you wherever she will.’

The Testament of Vida Tremayne is a novel by Sarah Vincent. Published in 2014 by Three Hares Publishing, I received my copy earlier in the Summer from the author. The cover of this book is so eye catching and as I was going away on holidays it seemed like the perfect read for the beach. I hope you enjoy my review.
