The Dressmakers of Yarrandarrah Prison is a funny, dark and moving story about finding humanity, friendship and redemption in unexpected places.

Derek's daughter Debbie is getting married. He's desperate to be there, but he's banged up in Yarrandarrah Correctional Centre for embezzling funds from the golf club, and, thanks to his ex-wife, Lorraine, he hasn't spoken to Debbie in years. He wants to make a grand gesture – to show her how much he loves her. But what? Inspiration strikes while he's embroidering a cushion at his weekly prison sewing circle – he'll make her a wedding dress. His fellow stitchers rally around and soon this motley gang of crims is immersed in a joyous whirl of silks, satins and covered buttons. But as time runs out and tensions rise both inside and outside the prison, the wedding dress project takes on greater significance. With lives at stake, Derek feels his chance to reconcile with Debbie is slipping through his fingers ...

'Not a word is wasted. Jaffé's humour is sly and unerringly finds its mark.'

'Jaffé has been likened to Liane Moriarty and the comparison is a fair one. Veering towards more popular, commercial fiction, she knows how to create and animate the domestic dramas of easily relatable characters and exploit the darkness seething beneath the gloss of surface civilities.'
