One reviewer said "Try ALL THE LIGHT WE CANNOT SEE or THE NIGHTINGALE for more realistic historical fiction." I am a student of WWII in Europe, and particularly in France as I was a small child living in Paris during the war and the Occupation. I'd like to point out that The Milliner's Secret's research is impeccable, whereas The Nightingale is full of glaring errors of life in France during the German Occupation despite the fact there is a great deal of information readily available. The story line is very good, too bad Kristin Hannah didn't spend enough time in research. It is unforgivable for a major author.
All The Light We Cannot See is a moving novel, very well researched, I gave it five stars.
The Milliner's Secret is well worth reading.
With all of that being said, the description of historical events and daily life in Paris at the time before and during WWII was very interesting and worth the long read. I just wish the author had taken out some events that weren't necessary for story development.
The author is a talented wordsmith.
This story covers human emotions during war with characters that have different loyalties and beliefs. Even though they are conflicted, it doesn't prevent their depth of emotional commitment to each other, and the heroic acts that have to be committed for that love.

I hope she enjoyed it as. Much as I did and have started on the one a bout the dress.
