A House of Tailors by Patricia Reilly Giff

August 8, 2009

I just read this book a second time and it was REALLY good. The main character, Dina, is based after the author’s grandmother. Who says you can’t make your characters personal?

Another reason I liked this book was that it is a historic novel. Not only is it based before 1950- it’s in 1870 to 1872- it is mostly a true story, with some character adjustments. I loved the way the author detailed Germany, and then the apartment in New York. It is sad when she has to leave Germany, and funny when she tries to learn english. I liked the ending a lot.
