Kristin Harmel has once again written a book that has you deeply invested in the story of Inès, Céline, Edith, and Liv. Her ability to weave the story back and forth in time…during WWII and the Nazi occupation of France and the present day…is a gift. You will be drawn into the lives of the characters and find yourself judging some of them in negative ways. But hold onto your seats, because what you assume to be true may not be the case.
The information you learn about champagne and wine production is interesting. And the willingness of individuals to take a stand against the atrocities of the Nazi invasion…in small and large ways…is impressive.
The background research that the author did to present a story with truth and integrity only adds to its appeal. You will find yourself drawn into the intense dangers, tensions, lies, infidelities, and poor decisions. And hold onto your seats, but there is a great twist at the end. You’ll be gasping in shock!
Thank you to NetGalley and Kristin Harmel for an ARC in exchange for my honest review. To be honest, I can’t wait for the author to release another book!
