Thrown into their rarified world, Flora soon realizes that there is more to this project than meets the eye, and, as she researches the provenance of their prize Renoir, she uncovers not only a scandal surrounding the painting but also a family secret. The fallout places Flora in the eye of a storm that carries her from London to Vienna to the coast of Provence, but Xavier Vermeil, the brusque scion of the family, is determined to separate her from his family's affairs...in spite of the attraction that propels them together. What secrets is he trying to hide, and what price will Flora pay to uncover the truth?

Paris, Art History, Nazi occupation’s...
effect on contemporary lives. I especially enjoyed this modern story which weaves the impact of France’s collaboration with Germany in WWII on one family. It isn’t emotionally grueling as many books on the subject are. The book is mostly about a very wealthy family in Paris and the young woman they hire to assess the provenance to value an apartment full of paintings they’ve inherited.
The narrator does an excellent job weaving between the voices of the characters and their various accents.
Being a student of art history, fashion, a Francophile, and a connoisseur of historical fiction - particularly of WWII - this is among my top three books.
