Publisher's Summary

The New York Times best-selling authors of The Glass Ocean and The Forgotten Room return with a glorious historical adventure that moves from the dark days of two World Wars to the turbulent years of the 1960s, in which three women with bruised hearts find refuge at Paris’ legendary Ritz hotel.

The heiress....
The Resistance fighter....
The widow....
Three women whose fates are joined by one splendid hotel

France, 1914. As war breaks out, Aurelie becomes trapped on the wrong side of the front with her father, Comte Sigismund de Courcelles. When the Germans move into their family’s ancestral estate, using it as their headquarters, Aurelie discovers she knows the German Major’s aide de camp, Maximilian Von Sternburg. She and the dashing young officer first met during Aurelie’s debutante days in Paris. Despite their conflicting loyalties, Aurelie and Max’s friendship soon deepens into love, but betrayal will shatter them both, driving Aurelie back to Paris and the Ritz - the home of her estranged American heiress mother, with unexpected consequences.

France, 1942. Raised by her indomitable, free-spirited American grandmother in the glamorous Hotel Ritz, Marguerite “Daisy” Villon remains in Paris with her daughter and husband, a Nazi collaborator, after France falls to Hitler. At first reluctant to put herself and her family at risk to assist her grandmother’s Resistance efforts, Daisy agrees to act as a courier for a skilled English forger known only as Legrand, who creates identity papers for Resistance members and Jewish refugees. But as Daisy is drawn ever deeper into Legrand’s underground network, committing increasingly audacious acts of resistance for the sake of the country - and the man - she holds dear, she uncovers a devastating secret...one that will force her to commit the ultimate betrayal, and to confront at last the shocking circumstances of her own family history.

France, 1964. For Barbara "Babs" Langford, her husband, Kit, was the love of her life. Yet their marriage was haunted by a mysterious woman known only as La Fleur. On Kit’s death, American lawyer Andrew "Drew" Bowdoin appears at her door. Hired to find a Resistance fighter turned traitor known as "La Fleur", the investigation has led to Kit Langford. Curious to know more about the enigmatic La Fleur, Babs joins Drew in his search, a journey of discovery that that takes them to Paris and the Ritz - and to unexpected places of the heart....

Oh mon dieu! So beautiful!

Incredibly beautiful with superb narration. Do yourself a favour and read this story of espionage, love, loyalty, heartbreak and above all the power of women.

Wonderful

An enticing novel that kept the reader totally enthralled. Three women, three time periods, and three stories that successfully intertwine and which leaves the reader yearning for more. Thoroughly enjoyed this novel in every aspect. You won’t be disappointed!

this was worth it

it took me a while to get into it like one gets to know a person, who, against expectations, would become to be a long time friend. Although so different than me, very much worth the time and attention.

Lovers and heroes and soues..oh my!

wonderful narration takes us through 3 generations of passion, intrigue, and the strength of love in the face of the horror that was 2 world wars.
a forbidden love affair during the great war will continue a legacy and begin a journey for each generation of women yo come. a great read/listen to curl up with.

Absolutely wonderful!

I absolutely loved this book. I purposely look for books narrated by Saskia Maarleveld but thoroughly enjoyed all three narrators in this book. The story was fascinating and so well written. I'm sad it's over!
