The Winter Dress
  • The Winter Dress


    The Winter Dress was one of the books short listed for this year’s Irish Writers’ Centre Novel Fair (2020). Written by Angela Keogh, The Winter Dress is the story of Rose, a wild Irish dress maker and Brother John, an agnostic monk and scribe. Their paths cross at the end of a winter day in 1348 and they spend the night in conversation, revealing stories of passion, love, betrayal, war and loss of faith – all in the looming shadow of a pestilence that will become known as The Black Death.
