Publisher's Summary

Simone Fleurier is wrenched from her home on a Provencal lavender farm at the age of 14 after the accidental death of her father. Forced to become a maid at the boarding house of her Aunt Augustine in Marseilles, Simone's life is hard and impoverished. But one of her aunt's boarders, the beautiful Camille Casal, a star at the local music hall, gives Simone a dream: that one day she too will be a famous singer and dancer. Years later, the famous Simone Fleurier, toast of Paris, watches Nazi troops occupy the city. Suddenly, her world is turned upside down, and Simone must make new and dangerous choices.

An Extrodinary Story

I want everyone to hear this wonderful story. It is one of the best I have ever heard (read) and will remain one of my favorites. I know I am in love with Simone Fluerier the main character. The novel is filled with suspense, merriment, love, sadness and other emotions that follow us through life. Kate Hood's narration is superb and she has command of all the varied voices in this book.
Historians of this period 1930-1945 will find this novel highly researched and informative equal to any historical fiction even though the book is not. I felt as though I was in Paris as the Germans filled the city. Don't miss this one if you like life stories wonderfully told.

Wonderful

Such a beautiful novel. I laughed and I cried. Been a favourite for years, there is no other that i'd recommend with all my heart. Hope you enjoy it as much as I did.
