Based on a real-life shipwreck discovered off Texel Island in the Wadden Sea, The Winter Dress follows the lives of two women separated by centuries but connected by a beautiful silk dress. This novel will take you on a captivating journey through our cultural ideas around textiles and what this means for the individual, as well as our sense of identity and perceptions of ourselves.
Lauren Chater is the author of the bestselling historical novel The Lace Weaver and the baking compendium Well Read Cookies: Beautiful biscuits inspired by great literature. She is currently working on her third novel, The Winter Dress, inspired by a real 17th century gown found off the Dutch coast in 2014. In her spare time, she loves baking and listening to her children tell their own stories. She lives in Sydney.
