The Paris Secret

The Paris Secret by Natasha Lester

My rating: 3 of 5 stars

WWII taught us an unforgettable lesson and divided the world’s timeline into Before and After. Nothing and no one felt the same after 1945… As the cities and countries were being repaired, the horror of the past was left behind, and people began rewriting their lives starting anew.

Nicholas, O’Farrell, Margaux, Skye, Liberty, and Catherine create a special friendship while united in a fight against the world’s greatest Nazi leader. This novel introduces the reader to bravery, resistance, and survival, but also love, friendship, and betrayal.

Pleasantly surprised by the beautiful cottage that Kat’s grandmother Margaux asked her to visit during Kat’s trip to England, she stumbled in on an unexpected discovery – a priceless collection of Dior gowns. Upon her return to Australia, Kat receives a phone call inquiring about Margaux Jourdan’s work in the French Resistance. Surprised once again, Kat questions her grandmother, but her attempts are unsuccessful, as an old woman refuses to revisit her past. With the help of an English writer, Kat digs down into history and discovers the tragic truth about her family…

Natasha Lester’s new novel shades a spotlight on women’s work during WWII. She introduces the very first female pilots in WWII history. I really loved that part of the story and the twist that came at the end. However the novel felt way too long, the middle part was very slow although it did contain interesting and useful facts here and there. Thank you NetGalley and Forever publisher for a free and advanced copy of the novel.
