I never cry while reading books, but I cried during “the Paris Secret” SEVERAL times! And it’s definitely my favorite of all three books! The character development is amazing, and you grow pretty attached to the storylines! Reading any of one of these books by Natasha Lester is like reading, watching a train wreck. You know something terrible and tragic is going to happen because she tells you through one storyline, but you have to wait for it to happen. And you just can’t get away from it!
Just a warning, there is gruesome info about a women’s concentration camp, and Lester is very good at making everything so real, so it’s hard to read at times. But I really appreciate her diving into the women’s part in the war, and then this concentration camp that I haven’t even Heard about til now.
As it began, I was a bit overwhelmed with so many characters and using the decades to tell the full story . What I wish I had done was to make a list of the names Margaux shares while modeling the bridal gown for Dior.
I chose this book for its mention of Dior in the description. I was not disappointed as it held a key to the story. I learned a bit of the background story on Catherine (Caro) Dior and her work with the French Resistance. Fascinating.
Relationships while some tenuous, others demonstrating the strength of friendship in the worst possible moments and love lost.
Several times I thought I had solved the mystery but not and I always enjoy when that happens.
It was a GOOD book and I recommend.
Following the end of the book, the author provides notes from her research relating to the war, French Resistance and of course Dior which I found as fascinating as I did the story.
I have added another of the authors books to my list.
This book has love, betrayal, mystery, heartache, and twists you will never see coming.
I do want to warn you if you are thinking about reading this book, that the first few chapters will seem boring and you may want to stop reading it but believe me when I say keep going!!!!! Those first few chapters are setting you up for the storyline that will be riveting.
This book IMHO is right up there with The Nightingale by Hannah or Dragonfly by Meacham or A Fire Sparkling by Maclean. One of the best books I've ever read.
