  • Strong woman.

    Wow! What a strong woman. She survived so many obstacles of her time. Loved it to the last page. Now love the complexity of Chanel No. 5 even more.

  • A great read.

    A great historical novel about real events. Suspenseful. War torn France is well described. It is a study of a flawed but endearing heroine .

  • Very interesting

    The Queen of Paris is a novel about Coco Chanel during WWII. We do get glimpses of her early life. Her mother died when she was young. Her father abandoned her at a convent after that. She had a horrible early life. Then she becomes a mistress to a wealthy older man and begins an affair with one of his friends. We find out Coco was very complicated. She was very vain, had a drug addiction to morphine, gave up the son she had due to the men she was involved with, was anti-Semitic, had a relationship with a German higher-up, lived with Gestapo in the same hotel, and became a spy for the Germans. The only reason I continued reading? The author did a wonderful job in convincing me that her redeemable quality was the fact that she loved the son that she could never claim was hers. Some of the things she did was for her son. Thank you to Netgalley and Blackstone Publishing for the copy. All opinions expressed are my own.

    Thanks for your feedback!
