  • Resistance fighters fighting Nazis

    Historical Romance during the Nazi invasion of France was an exceptional period in our history. Resistance fighters were the core of destroying the Nazis. Sylvie Martone a French Actress was heralded as a German collaborator and her daughter died believing this about her mother. Her granddaughter , Juliana came to Paris to try and figure out if she really was and also to discover things about herself as well. Overall, this book had a tremendous plot, but I felt that it was choppy at times and it lost sight of Julianas role and by throwing in Ridge, her boyfriend just didn’t add enough punch or excitement for me. The continuity of the book was not truly flowing, but I loved the premise of this storyline. I received an advanced copy from NetGalley and these are my willingly given thoughts and opinions.

  • Moving, Poignant and Wonderful!

    Inspirational and hopeful, this alternating dual-timeline book is a fascinating account of unraveling a family's deep secrets from the past. Though fictional, it is very believable. It is told through the eyes of Sylvie and Juliana. Sylvie Martone, French actress extraordinaire, has many secrets hidden in her heart. She is faced with difficult choices, especially when war breaks out. Her story is filled with desperation, betrayal, heartache and love, written so convincingly I felt a range of emotions. After her mother dies, Juliana Chastain sorts through her belongings and finds far more than she expected, something meaningful yet disconcerting, a photograph of her grandmother linking arms with a Nazi officer. Juliana's mother had remained tight-lipped about her family so this discovery ignited a spark to go on a quest to discover the truth, regardless of what she would find. Her determination takes her places she would never have thought. This moving book captures the realities of war as well as the lives of the characters and the secrets they keep. I like that the story isn't all roses and happiness which isn't realistic. Sylvie's life has many fascinating twists and turns, ups and downs. Though about war, the story is not heavy or cumbersome. The chapter titles are brilliant and at the end of each I wanted to get to the next as they left me on tenterhooks at times. I made a note to read more by Jina Bacarr. Readers who enjoy thought-provoking Historical Fiction which is deeper than some should read this. My sincere thank you to Boldwood Books and NetGalley for providing me with an ARC of this enthralling book in exchange for an honest review. Much appreciated.
