The Women in Black

A Novel

by Madeleine St John

This novel was originally published in 1983 and was reissued a couple of years ago. It tells the story of some of the women who worked in a Sydney department store; they are our “Women in Black.” Readers follow Patty, Fay, Magda and Lisa. Each has her own backstory and work experience as they work in the cocktail dress department in the 1950s set story.

The Women in Black is a short novel and a story that was made into a movie. I have not seen the film but will most likely give it a look now.

I enjoyed this novel which gave me the chance to step back in time for a bit. I will never get to shop and be helped by saleswomen like these!

Many thanks to NetGalley and Scribner for this title. All opinions are my own.

I love to read, recommend books and open the world of reading to others. I tutor to ensure that the next generation of readers will know the joys of a good book because their reading skills have improved. I am an avid reader, especially of mysteries and fiction. I believe that two of the world's greatest inventions were the public library and eyeglasses!
