From the New York Times bestselling author of The Lost Girls of Paris.

For one woman in the aftermath of World War I, the City of Light harbors dark secrets and dangerous liaisons.



Paris, 1919. Margot Rosenthal has arrived in France with her father, a German diplomat. She initially resents being trapped in the congested capital, where she is still considered the enemy. But as she contemplates returning to Berlin and a life she hardly knows anymore, she decides that being in Paris is not so bad after all.

Bored and torn between duty and the desire to be free, Margot strikes up unlikely alliances: with Krysia, an accomplished musician with radical acquaintances and a secret to protect; and with Georg, a naval officer who gives Margot a job--and a reason to question everything she thought she knew about where her true loyalties should lie.

Against the backdrop of one of the most significant events of the century, a delicate web of lies obscures the line between the casualties of war and of the heart, making trust a luxury that no one can afford.

Look for these other sweeping epics from New York Times bestselling author Pam Jenoff.

Her other two books were more compelling but enjoyed this so much read it the day I picked it up. The diplomatic machinations about WW1 Armistice was interesting as well as social changes it brought about. A bit too much romance for me as I like the historical and travel aspects the most but as I said, I read it in one sitting so I must have liked it!

I liked this book. Good story line, quick read, and certainly kept my interest all the way thru. Set in Europe in 1919 after WWI. I plan to read other book by same author.
