The war; it's ugly with pieces of beauty thrown in.

The book draws attention to the past. A big fear at the time was the Nazis taking control of Paris in 1940. But there's another fear just as dangerous with a group of French thugs who wanted power and they got it from the police and support of the Third Reich. The "Gestapo" was known to search for Jews and interrogate them. Nothing stopped them from taking property and valuables in this city of love and romance.

Within this craziness, two sisters, Yvette and Gabby, worked in the fashion industry and helped Christian Dior's sister, Catherine, with the WWII French Resistance in different ways. Yvette was a delivery girl. She said, "the only good Nazi is a dead Nazi" as she dropped off packages on her bike route and helped a movie star, Louise Dulac, to get ready for the evening's events. Gabby worked with her mom as a concierge of an apartment building. One of her tenants was Catherine Dior who was secretly hiding Jews. Gabby was there to offer assistance.

While both sisters were involved with the war, Yvette was more daring and found herself in a dangerous position. She had no choice but to escape to New York. In another timeline of this book, 1947, Yvette returned to an all-paid trip to be a witness for Louise Dulac's trial who was locked up in a prison as a traitor. The question is: will she help someone that is the most hated woman in France? And did I mention romance? Yes, love, fashion and everything you can expect from Paris is in the book.

There has been an overwhelming amount of historical fiction novels recently on WWII. Each one helps us learn a piece of what happened because of the words written by an author. My thanks to Christine Wells, HarperCollins Publishers and NetGalley for allowing me to read this advanced copy to be released on June 8, 2021. ( )

I really enjoyed this book about two fictional young women in Paris under Nazi occupation and about the real Catherine Dior. Their involvement with the resistance is thrilling and nerve-wracking. ( )

I actually ended up really liking this story after starting out not really knowing what direction it was headed in. Set over a 3-5 year period, the tale follows Yvette and Gabby, 2 young French girls who find themselves in the middle of occupied France toward the end of WW11. Both girls end up fulfilling different roles as street level members of the French resistance. The story begins in 1947 with an exiled Yvette returning to France to serve as a star witness in the trial of disgraced film star Louis Dulac who is facing charges related to her open relationship with a high ranking Nazi officer during the war. Alternating between current events and the last years of the war, we learn all about the secret activities of these 2 sisters. Activities that ultimately drove Yvette to flee France out of concerns for her safety. An engaging story which becomes more interesting as the story builds through the pages. Yvette and Gabby are the perfect sister pair, one a carefree rebel who always seems to land on her feet, the other a nurturing worrier consumed with taking care of all whom need help. Should appeal to fans of the genre. Thank you to Netgalley for the copy in exchange for an honest review. ( )

A surprisingly sweet story with an equally sweet and happy ending - quite an accomplishment for a novel set during the German occupation of Paris during World War II. ( )
