Product Description

From the New York Times bestselling author of The Paris Orphan comes an unforgettable historical novel about a secret collection of Dior gowns that ties back to the first female pilots of WWII and a heartbreaking story of love and sacrifice.

England, 1939: The Penrose sisters couldn''t be more different. Skye is a daring and brash pilot, and Liberty the one to defy her at every turn. Even if women aren''t allowed in the Royal Air Force, Skye is determined to help the war effort. She''s thrilled when it reunites her with her childhood soulmate, Nicholas. She''s less thrilled to learn Nicholas is now engaged to an enigmatic Frenchwoman named Margaux Jourdan.

Paris, 1947: Designer Christian Dior unveils his glamorous first collection to a world weary of war and grief. He names his debut fragrance Miss Dior in tribute to his beloved sister Catherine, who forged a friendship with Skye and Margaux through her work with the French Resistance.

Present Day: Fashion conservator Kat Jourdan discovers a priceless collection of Dior gowns in her grandmother''s vacant cottage. As she delves into the mystery of their origin, Kat begins to doubt everything she thought she knew about her beloved grandmother.

Review

"This meticulously researched novel is about the lengths people will go to protect one another, and a love that lasts a lifetime. The Paris Secret is a tear-jerker, so stock up on tissues, sit in a quiet corner and don''t move until you''ve finished this extraordinary book."― Marie Claire

A "sweeping family saga written in elegant, evocative prose that is as carefully stitched together as a couture gown. Meticulous attention to period details, impeccable plotting, and rich characterization will delight fans of Kate Morton or anyone in need of a gorgeously wrought ... tale of love, loss, courage, and compassion."― Booklist, starred review

"Lester''s magnetic characters, lyrical writing, and extensive historical research breathe life into this riveting tale. This is a stunner."Publishers Weekly, starred review

"A stirring portrait of a daring and courageous group of women willing to risk it all in a time of war, The Paris Secret is historical fiction at its best. A beautiful love story coupled with an intricate mystery, richly detailed and impeccably researched history, and an homage to the strength of the human spirit makes this a poignant and powerful read. Natasha Lester has done it again!"― Chanel Cleeton, New York Times & USA Today bestselling author of The Last Train to Key West

" Lester is a master storyteller. In only the way Lester can do it, these seemingly unlinked stories come together in a gorgeously satisfying way that will have you wiping tears from your face in the final pages."― The Daily Telegraph on The Paris Secret

"Lester''s talent shines in her new novel, THE PARIS SECRET, filled with spies and the French Resistance, vivid detailing, and a cast of courageous young women, intent on playing their part in a devastating war. A rich tapestry of fashion, family secrets, and love in war, it''s the perfect escape." Heather Webb, USA Today bestselling author

"What could be better than flight and fashion, desire and Dior? Natasha Lester masterfully stitches together the stunning fabric of four women''s lives into a heartbreaker of a novel that will keep you up late into the night." Kerri Maher, author of The Kennedy Debutante and The Girl In White Gloves

"Sweeping romances, daring wartime exploits, and haute couture combine in this thrilling tale of love, loss and mystery during the Second World War. In Margaux, Skye and Liberty, Natasha Lester showcases the unforgettable strength of women who served in England and France, bringing to life the voices of those lost in the fog of war. And the fashion... need I say more?"― Bryn Turnbull, author of The Woman Before Wallis

"Sweeping and heartbreaking, Natasha Lester''s The Paris Secret tells a story of fearless women, their unrelenting bravery in the face of war, and the endurance of love against all odds. Brimming with long-held secrets, engrossing characters, and rich historical detail, this is a riveting read."Kristin Beck, author of Courage, My Love

"Natasha Lester''s writing is wholly and intimately transportive. Every time I opened the book, I fell into the world contained within its pages, and I didn''t want to leave. The Paris Secret is a dazzling marvel of storytelling, a perfect blend of action, history, and emotional depth. Unforgettable."― Erika Robuck, bestselling author of Hemingway''s Girl

"An exceptionally atmospheric, beautifully written, impactful novel that sweeps you away to another time and place and immerses you into the lives of such enticing characters you can''t help but be thoroughly moved and engrossed."― What''s Better Than Books

"Captivating characters. Breathtaking, emotional relationships... a dream novel worthy of a Dior tag and definitely one for your collection!"― The Grateful Reader

I was First drawn to Natasha Lester when I saw “The Paris Orphan” because the cover was so beautiful! I read It a year after I purchased it, and I fell in love immediately! I moved Onto “the Paris Seamstress,” and then, “The Paris Secret!” OH MY GOSH!!!! I read All the 3 book in less then 3 months!!

I never cry while reading books, but I cried during “the Paris Secret” SEVERAL times! And it’s definitely my favorite of all three books! The character development is amazing, and you grow pretty attached to the storylines! Reading any of one of these books by Natasha Lester is like reading, watching a train wreck. You know something terrible and tragic is going to happen because she tells you through one storyline, but you have to wait for it to happen. And you just can’t get away from it!

Just a warning, there is gruesome info about a women’s concentration camp, and Lester is very good at making everything so real, so it’s hard to read at times. But I really appreciate her diving into the women’s part in the war, and then this concentration camp that I haven’t even Heard about til now.

This book had such potential which, in my mind, it didn''t live up to. The history of WWII women pilots & their work in the Resistance is an amazing subject, so compelling & would that the story telling did it justice. The writing style was mundane, it seemed hurriedly & carelessly written. Sentences were awkward &didn''t scan grammatically. Because it was such compelling history, I forged through till the end. Though I do enjoy a good interwoven romance story, the love relationships described in this book were trite & cliched. I do not reccomend slogging thru this latest book! However, I do recommend Natasha Lester''s Paris Seamstress, about the Nazi Occupation of France. It has more depth of character & just a better written book over all.

Natasha Lester creates a mystery and the most believable characters in this historical fiction. These brave women and men are a tribute to the real airmen and women of WWII. The poignant love story of Skye and Nicholas will be one not easily forgotten. Also the mystery of the Dior dresses gives a glimpse into the history of fashion. Wishing more of Lester’s novels were available on Kindle!

Nothing could be further from the truth. This historical fiction was SO well researched. And the moving from WW2 to present day was handled beautifully. I learned more about the women aviators then I knew there was to learn. The characters were beautifully rendered and there were "I didn''t see that coming" moments that added to the suspense and enjoyment.

There are many characters and the book moves between the 1940s and the 2010s.

As it began, I was a bit overwhelmed with so many characters and using the decades to tell the full story . What I wish I had done was to make a list of the names Margaux shares while modeling the bridal gown for Dior.

I chose this book for its mention of Dior in the description. I was not disappointed as it held a key to the story. I learned a bit of the background story on Catherine (Caro) Dior and her work with the French Resistance. Fascinating.

Relationships while some tenuous, others demonstrating the strength of friendship in the worst possible moments and love lost.

Several times I thought I had solved the mystery but not and I always enjoy when that happens.

It was a GOOD book and I recommend.

Following the end of the book, the author provides notes from her research relating to the war, French Resistance and of course Dior which I found as fascinating as I did the story.

I have added another of the authors books to my list.

First let me say what a great book. I could not put it down. The plot centers mainly on the people who work with the Resistance in France during the Nazi invasion.

This book has love, betrayal, mystery, heartache, and twists you will never see coming.

I do want to warn you if you are thinking about reading this book, that the first few chapters will seem boring and you may want to stop reading it but believe me when I say keep going!!!!! Those first few chapters are setting you up for the storyline that will be riveting.

This book IMHO is right up there with The Nightingale by Hannah or Dragonfly by Meacham or A Fire Sparkling by Maclean. One of the best books I''ve ever read.
