    You will not forget them

    historical-figures, historical-novel, historical-places-events, historical-research, historical-setting, war-is-hell, WW2, love, Paris ***** Is Blanche the main character, or is it Claude, or The Ritz on Place Vendome, or maybe Paris and its people? It's certainly not the Nazis, or even the famous people who frequented the Ritz, not even the staff or the other Resistance fighters. Perhaps it is the indomitable spirit of these particular people who refused to give up and later refused to talk about what they suffered. Blanche and Claude were as real as Coco Chanel, but historical documentation is very sparse. His work, their involvement in the Resistance, his pecadillos, her notable acquaintances, they are written about. But there is nothing substantive about who they were beyond that. This book gives them life in a special way. It will make you laugh, become angry and frustrated, and you cry for all of them. But you will not forget them. I requested and received a free ebook copy from Random House Publishing Group-Ballantine via NetGalley. Thank you!
