Summary

From the internationally best-selling author of The Paris Seamstress comes a story of courage, family and forgiveness.  

Manhattan, Paris, 1942: When Jessica May's successful modelling career is abruptly cut short, she is assigned to the war in Europe as a photojournalist for Vogue. But when she arrives the army men make her life as difficult as possible. Three friendships change that: journalist Martha Gellhorn encourages Jess to bend the rules, paratrooper Dan Hallworth takes her to places to shoot pictures and write stories that matter, and a little girl, Victorine, who has grown up in a field hospital, shows her love. But success comes at a price.  

France, 2005: Australian curator D'Arcy Hallworth arrives at a beautiful chateau to manage a famous collection of photographs. What begins as just another job becomes far more disquieting as D'Arcy uncovers the true identity of the mysterious photographer - and realises that she is connected to D'Arcy's own mother, Victorine.  

Crossing a war-torn Europe from Italy to France, The French Photographer is a story of courage, family and forgiveness by the best-selling author of The Paris Seamstress and A Kiss from Mr Fitzgerald.

Super

A brilliant story! How anyone can write a story with three generations is amazing. I loved it.
Probably will listen again, so I can grasp the thread completely. I look forward to that time.
