Audio Book Summary

For readers of Lilac Girls and The Nightingale comes an internationally bestselling World War II novel that spans generations, crosses oceans, and proves just how much two young women are willing to sacrifice for love and family.

1940: As the Germans advance upon Paris, young seamstress Estella Bissette is forced to flee everything she's ever known. She's bound for New York City with her signature gold dress, a few francs, and a dream: to make her mark on the world of fashion.

Present day: Fabienne Bissette journeys to the Met's annual gala for an exhibit featuring the work of her ailing grandmother - a legend of women's fashion design. But as Fabienne begins to learn more about her beloved grandmother's past, she uncovers a story of tragedy, heartbreak and family secrets that will dramatically change her own life.

    The brief summary led me to believe that love and sacrifice was more than soft-porn and crossed wires to get to true love (with all the appropriate curlicues and hearts). Couldn't make it to the end--although I got further than I should have hoping it was going to go somewhere.

    Book itself was a weak story but the narrator was awesome! She saved it!

    The subject matter and the plot of this book is interesting but I found parts of it rather juvenile and the writing so overwrought at times that I'd burst out laughing. It felt too much like a bodice ripper with extreme adjectives. For example, a character was described as being "annihilated" due to being spurned. A bit much.
