Something I like to do to support my favorite Indy Authors.
I liked Paris, Adrift, while it's basically the back story on Juliana, you meet her wayward brother, her Lord father, Aunt Sally and a few of her favorite places in Paris.
I have too admit that I liked both the first and second books, due to WW2, what it was like in NYC was educational reading and then the setting in post war NYC nightclub was fascinating reading.
Felt like Vanda without realizing it, or maybe she knows it, wants the reader to become Alice or Al, as her friends call her. You can't help but like Al, she's strong, a tough women for that time period and easily could fit in today's world.
I did find it weird that Juliana's Catholic, married a straight husband, yet has all these lesbian extra marital affairs, Al as she manages her, interacts with her, yet she doesn't want to discuss them with her and it seems like she's embarrassed by them.
Then you have Al, who is committed to Juliana, doesn't have any flings but feel like she easily could have, even Vanda flirted a little in Olympus Nights, with the girl trying out for a job giving her a private strip show and then you have the hat check girl, who always seems to be annoying her.
Me I could easily see her, having a fling with Mercy. Especially with how she saw them off in Paris, Adrift, plus just seems to be jealous of what the two are doing and she can't do due to Shirl.
I liked that it's set in Paris, the voyage on the SS United States to Paris was interesting also, like how Vanda took actually history regarding the celebrities from that time period, added real places, and expertly blended it with her fictional characters.
Even being straight, have found Vanda's, Juliana's historical series to be educational reading, never was aware of how badly the gay/lesbian community was treated in that era, should be mandatory reading and do yourself a favor by reading her books.
In my opinion, Vanda's Juliana series is part of the small select group of great lesbian historical fiction. Beautifully written, the author brings to life pre & post WWII "homosexual culture. This is done in the form of two engagingly complex characters, both Juliana and Al will take your breath away; you may laugh at Al's antics, be angry at Juliana's aloofness, cheer Max's triumphs - but in the end you will fall in love with each of them.
Paris Adrift is an excellent book three to the continued love story of Juliana and Al, trust me, you will not be disappointed.
Cheers Vanda, I so look forward to Juliana and Al's next adventure!
