Description

From the New York Times bestselling author of The Orphan's Tale

Paris, 1919.
The world's leaders have gathered to rebuild from the ashes of the Great War. But for one woman, the City of Light harbors dark secrets and dangerous liaisons, for which many could pay dearly.

Brought to the peace conference by her father, a German diplomat, Margot Rosenthal initially resents being trapped in the congested French capital, where she is still looked upon as the enemy. But as she contemplates returning to Berlin and a life with Stefan, the wounded fiancé she hardly knows anymore, she decides that being in Paris is not so bad after all.

Bored and torn between duty and the desire to be free, Margot strikes up unlikely alliances: with Krysia, an accomplished musician with radical acquaintances and a secret to protect; and with Georg, the handsome, damaged naval officer who gives Margot a job—and also a reason to question everything she thought she knew about where her true loyalties should lie.

Against the backdrop of one of the most significant events of the century, a delicate web of lies obscures the line between the casualties of war and of the heart, making trust a luxury that no one can afford.

From Publishers Weekly

Mar 04, 2013 – In Jenoff s eloquent follow-up to The Diplomat s Wife, conflicted Margot accompanies her German diplomat father to Paris for the treaty negotiations following WWI. Traveling to England and then France, Margot deliberately delays the inevitable return to Berlin and avoids the impending union with her injured fianc Stefan. Guilty about abandoning their commitment, Margot feels detached from the life she s expected to lead, shielding herself "from the truth that inevitably awaits." Though at first an outsider in Paris and bored with the social functions she must attend, her world changes when she meets Krysia a pianist from Poland with radical political affiliations, an ethereal appearance, and an affinity for forthright speech and then Georg, the striking but troubled German naval officer with "strong features, seemingly etched from granite." The two share an immediate and undeniable attraction, but with new introductions come new afflictions. Margot quickly becomes entangled in a political fiasco as well as a fairly predictable love triangle, but her indecisive character will keep the reader guessing as to the end result. A tale of surprise betrayals, unquenchable desire, and a necessary awakening, Jenoff s thorough and elaborate descriptions of character and setting makes for a satisfying period romance.
