    ePUB nessville.me Ï The Women in Black Kindle ´ The Women PDF or women pdf, black kindle, The Women pdf, The Women in Black KindleThe Women in Black is set in a the Women's Frock section of a 1950s Sydney department store where the sales assistants must all wear black dresses Patty Fay and Miss Jacobs whose Christian name we never learn all work in 'Ladies' Cocktail' while Slovenian emigre Magda rules the exclusive 'Model Gowns' section Arriving into this refined environment as a summer casual is bright eyed Lisa Lesley to her parents who has just left school and is waiting for the results of her leaving exams It's amazing that this debut novel was written as recently as 1993 when St John was in her 50s She would have been a teenager in the 1950s and almost certainly shopped in similar stores herself in fact it's likely that the store in the novel is modeled on the Australian David Jones department stores Despite being a private reclusive woman and having lived in London for 25y before writing this she has caught the feel and essence of the place and time very well Women were expected

    ePUB nessville.me Ï The Women in Black Kindle ´ The Women PDF or women pdf, black kindle, The Women pdf, The Women in Black KindleAn Aussie classic from Text Publishing The Women In Black by Madeleine St John is a great read The musical adaptation of the book Ladies in Black is playing in Melbourne at present to enthusiastic audiencesThis delightful novel is set in the Women’s clothing department of a major Sydney department store in the 1950s The story is character driven rather than having an elaborate action oriented plot It starts rather slow and low key but gradually builds into a most entertaining tale At first I was unsure about its tone

    ePUB nessville.me Ï The Women in Black Kindle ´ The Women PDF or women pdf, black kindle, The Women pdf, The Women in Black KindleThis is a charming novel that gives a picture of Sydney in the 1950s and the salesladies that wore black dresses I was surprised to find it was written in 1993 I thought it might have been earlier than that It’s not compelling reading but it is uietly enjoyable I loved the cast of characters with Patty Fay Magda and her husband Stefan and Lesley who changes her name to Lisa They all work in the frock section yes they were called frocks not dresses back then except for Magda who has charge of the Model Gowns section Lisa is the young one of the group having recently finished her HSC and waiting on results It covers a lot including family dynamics and attitudes
