The Paris Orphan (by Natasha Lester) … WWII historical fiction with a dual timeline

I am a huge fan of historical fiction books which are set during WWII. While the main character is Jessica May, the book really was based on the true story of Lee Miller, a U.S. photojournalist. It is obvious how much research the author conducted. Even more amazing is how she was able to weave the facts into a pleasant read. Miller was an amazing woman and her efforts to overcome the manner in which women were discriminated against were admirable. The dual timeline was handled well and kept me invested in the story.

Thank you to NetGalley and Forever for my advanced review copy. All opinions and thoughts are my own.
