There are just too many of them and I am overwhelmed For some reason I ordered this one and I am glad I did I really liked it and there were plenty of twists that made itinteresting Charlotte is working at a bookstore this could be why I picked this book during WWII and raising her young daughter, Vivi I am thrilled there were bookstores open during the German occupation but wonder who had money to buy books They couldn t afford food but bought books Well, it would be a toss up for me Her husband was already killed in action so she is on her own She falls into a relationship with a German officer who is a doctor and sneaks her food and medicine There is a twist about him that I found unnecessary and just too much I dropped my rating to 4 stars because of it Charlotte is terrified someone will discover the relationship Rightly so The French didn t care for people carrying on with the enemy The story then jumps 12 or so years later Charlotte and Vivi are now living in NYC where she works as a book editor The owner of the publishing house was a friend of her fathers and sponsored her at the end of the War so she could come to America He is also her landlord so he s into her business The story alternates between the two time periods We discover what Charlotte did to survive in occupied Paris and it is really up to the reader to decide if she was justified I have quite mixed feelings but that s what a good book does It makes you think Her boss has secrets about the War that are rather devastating In the end I had second thoughts about all the characters and I loved that It means the people became real to me Thanks to NetGalley for a copy of this book Started this one with Lindsay, she finished and I am leaving Paris in these pages before it never leaves me.This just wasn t the right book in the bookshop for me The two timelines didn t weave together well for me and the story felt disconnected along with the characters After Lindsay finished this one I decided not to My rating is based on when I was reading it So please take my review of what I read lightly and reads a fewI received a copy on NetGalley. 2 stars Completely missed its mark with me.A

issue was the forced romance that felt awkward and unnecessary This felthistorical romance than historical fiction The main character has two romantic situations, neither of which felt authentic or passionate Additionally, the dual storylines felt disjointed and lacked flow I didn t feel the timelines pulling together or complimenting each other and they often were hard to distinguish between as they weren t clearly outlined.This simply wasn t a good fit for me, but there are some positive reviews out there, so please check those out Thank you to Edelweiss for providing me with an ARC I won this ARC in a GoodReads Giveaway many thanks to GoodReads and the publisher for this opportunity.This book was written with a little different perspective from my usual WWII reads I found myself reading it obsessively all day and into the early evening because I could not put it down Charlotte s harrowing experiences mixed with her combined self loathing, survivor s guilt and determination to protect her daughter at all cost was compelling and gut wrenching All in all a very satisfying I won this ARC in a GoodReads Giveaway many thanks to GoodReads and the publisher for this
