Description

'Vain trifles as they seem, clothes have, they say, more important offices than to merely keep us warm. They change our view of the world and the world's view of us.'
- Virginia Woolf

Anna is in her sixties with her dream job and the man to match. Claire is a fourty-six-year-old philanthropist with a picture-perfect family. And then there is Molly, who has seen more strife in her twenty years than anyone should, but has more love to give than most.

When their lives are turned upside down, these women must discover how to start over amid a world of pain. Guided by Suitability, a clothing an styling service for disadvantaged women, Anna, Claire and Molly find the courage to rebuild their lives - with a few outfit changes along the way.

Inspired by the experiences of the women behind the charity Dress for Success, The Changing Room proves that sometimes losing everything leads you towards freedom, and that hope can be found even in the unlikeliest of places.

About Christine Sykes

Christine Sykes grew up in the same street as the Whitlam family in Sydney's Cabramatta which she recounted in her bestselling memoir Gough and Me ( Ventura 2021). She is a champion of creating opportunity for those less fortunate through her work with the public service and more recently with the charity Dress for Success on which her first novel The Changing Room was based.

Christine's Aunt Peggy was a keen tap dancer and this story is dedicated to her.
