An epic love story. A story of being human. A love affair with Paris. War, betrayal, passion, suffering, and hope. Twists and turns galore that will have you spellbound. Oh yes, and a fine heaping dose of glamour and couture fashion. What more can ask for in a book? An exceptional writer? Natalie Meg Evans is just that. Perfection!

Even though there are flaws in this book, I enjoyed it and would read another by this author. I actually quite enjoyed the fashion and millinery aspects to the book and found myself looking up styles of hats and French fashion in WW2. The story is a tad farfetched at times, but it's forgivable and it hangs together if you accept the twists and turns as is. The narrator didn't have a grasp of French pronunciation but was excellent at the different characters, which ultimately is more important. For those of us that are bothered by this sort of thing, there is minimal explicit violence or sexual scenes and no swearing that I can recall. My kind of book! If you can't escape winter with a holiday, take a trip to a Parisian hat shop during WW2.

Well what can I say! This book was just awful, I didn't even finish it & I rarely ever do that.
Bad, dull, boring storyline with no interesting content what so ever! I felt sorry for the narrator reading such a dull story. Nothing was interesting at all and the story so ridiculous & unbelievable. I didn't warm to any of the characters & thought the main character was as bland as paint drying!
When a story doesn't captivate you, make you laugh, cry & feel gutted when you've finished it then it's not a very good story in my opinion.

This is by far the best audiobook I’ve ever listened to. The story is gripping, the narrator excellent- can’t recommend it highly enough
An enjoyable listen, I found the story line very good but it was too dragged out for my liking, it has a happy ending which I enjoy, I'm Sadden that the main male character didn't make it with Coralie, as I found him a most except able fellow. Then again he was German and it is set during the war so I guess one has to die, you were a lovely character Coralie, as was your love.
