REVIEW FROM BOOKS FOR HER:
The Paris Seamstress is amazing. Estella, who grew up with a seamstress mother, is on her way to New York alone to start new as a designer fleeing German rule in pre WWII France. There’s so much to love in this dual plotline story – and you’ll love all the characters you meet along the way, especially the strong women who learn to love in their different ways. Excellent storytelling, combined with some amazing characters, made this one of my favorites reads of the year. My favorite genre is historical fiction and romance – and the combination of current day romance with WWII historical fiction is one of my favorites.
I read The Paris Seamstress right after an intense and somewhat heartbreaking The Dutch Wife, also set during World War II – so I loved the bittersweet flare that Natasha Lester brought to the era. With some historical facts that are fascinating, Lester weaves a tale of love, loss and overcoming challenges.
