I found this book after not being able to sit down and read the whole brain child. I listened to it in the car, on walks, when my son was napping and every chance I could get. I got this book because my 2.5 year old son was biting, scratching and throwing epic tantrums that made me lose it every single time. The result was anger, wild emotions, lack of discipline, lack of growth, exhaustion and fear. This is how I grew up and didn't want my son to experience the same. In reading this book and taking the advice we have had a complete 360. My son trusts me, is calmer, more open to communication. I am calmer and more equipped and confident in my role as a parent. This book he also helped me have a better relationship with my husband whom I often treat like a misbehaving child. It's opened liens of communication between us and made me think about how I talk to him. Highly recommended for parents with kids of any age.

If you could sum up The Dressmaker in three words, what would they be?

Brilliant. Gripping. Graphic.

What was one of the most memorable moments of The Dressmaker?

The romance between Tilly and Teddy and how he allowed her to come undone.

Have you listened to any of Rachel Griffiths’s other performances? How does this one compare?

This is my first one. Loved it. The voices painted a perfect picture of rural Australia.

Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

Yes but had to break it up between dropping my son off to daycare and walks.
