A really good read

It isn’t very often a story really grips me but this one did. Without giving anything away, it’s very emotive and I found tears in my eyes at the end.
Brilliant writer, well researched story and a very rewarding listen/book.
Very well written.
The synopsis on Amazon was engaging, as many are, but this one surpassed my expectations and really delivered.
Highly recommend.

Left me wanting... more.

I was gripped all the way through. Lester had thoroughly done her homework on this book. I could see the places she spoke of & almost be there with the characters. The story kept me guessing right till the end almost. A great read that deals with many difficult subjects. It has left me wanting more.

Absolutely fantastic

If you are interested in fashion, you will love this as the book centres around Christian Dior be and his sister, and a fashion conservatoire trying to piece together what happened in the 30"s in Paris from his clothes. Another masterpiece by Natasha Lester - you can't wait until you finish her books and then you are so disappointed when you do as you have to wait until the next one.

Loved every bit of this

I loved the twists and the unpredictability of the story between Sky & Nicolas. The narrators delivered well as They made me imagine the story really well - can tell by how the war part pinched through me so hard. Well done!
