Publisher's Summary

After surviving the accident that took her mother's life, Claire Broussard worked hard to escape her small Louisiana hometown. But these days, she feels something lacking. Abruptly leaving her lucrative job in Chicago, Claire returns home to care for her ailing grandmother. There, she unearths a beautiful sculpture that her great-grandfather sent home from Paris after World War II.
At her grandmother's urging, Claire travels to Paris to track down the centuries old mask-making atelier where the sculpture, known only as "L'inconnue" - or the Unknown Woman - was created. With the help of a passionate sculptor, Claire discovers a cache of letters that offer insight into the life of the Belle Epoque woman immortalized in the work of art.
As Claire uncovers the unknown woman's tragic fate, she begins to discover secrets - and a new love - of her own.

love story, a mystery, a historical novel, or all

How do I classify it: a love story, a mystery, a historical novel, or all three? Or do I go with heartwarming, beautiful, warm, cozy, or simply a lovely read that I enjoyed very much?

There are three main characters: Claire (Chance) Broussard, a devastated young woman who’s Grandmother on her death bed tells her to go to Paris and discover it's secrets; Armand, a brooding Frenchman who continuing his family legacy of mold making; and Sabine, a young woman who lived over one hundred years ago and is an artist’s model. All three revolve around “L’Inconnue” - The Unknown Woman’s death mask. Uncover the history and identity of this unexplainable piece of art and you have the essence of the story. The author, Juliet Blackwall, alternates between time periods, which adds to the mystery and the sense of history.

Chance discovers secrets that have the power to change her and Armand’s lives.
The book is filled with history, family, love, and was simply a charming and beautiful read.

Whether Ms. Blackwall is writing in this format or the paranormal, she has become one of my favorite authors.
