Jana Petken recommends
The Viennese Dressmaker (2022)
Kathryn Gauci
"Triumphs, defeats, and loss. Kathryn Gauci's characters bleed from the pages in this perfectly paced novel set in Vienna. This great historical novel transported me to Austria and allowed me to see, smell and feel the streets beneath my feet as I walked alongside the characters."
