TANYA REVIEW I LOVED THIS BOOK TOO ANOTHER GREAT REVIEW BY TANYA THANK YOU FOR DOING THIS FAB POST

This is one of those books that will stick with you for a long time as the language and the story are so descriptive. It certainly makes you appreciate what women had to endure when they are classed as the lower sex from the First World War onwards. The book tells the story of Jessie, a young lady from an affluent London family that finds herself in a difficult situation in France from 1919 onwards. It also tells us about events that happen to her daughter Lisa from 1939 onwards in Hollywood. Later Lisa’s daughter Cat comes into the story. The story alternates between events in Jessie’s and Lisa’s lives and then between Lisa and Cats lives.

The change in the chapters keeps you gripped and although you want to know what happened in that particular era you are also desperate to continue with the story of the other era. I loved how the story went the full circle and led you to understand the characters more. I liked how men played a part in the books and you could see that although part of you wanted to dislike the men Jessie’s life I found myself liking them. I was so glad that they were redeemed in the end and that Gervaise, the artist became such an important person in both Lisa’s and Cat’s life.

I really do not want to go into any detail about the story in the book as it will give too much away. I have had this book sat on my shelf for quite a few months and I am glad that I finally got around to reading it. I recommend that you do too.
