Review by Anne Day
Alison Lester is one of the fastest growing Australian authors. She is published all over the world. This book is THE Historical Fiction book for Christmas 2022.
After spearheading several successful campaigns Alix St Pierre comes to the attention of the US government and finds herself recruited into an intelligence organisation. Enlisted as a spy, Alix is sent to Europe where she must try and get close to a man who might be able to help the Allied forces – but there is also a chance he might be a double agent
After the war, Alix moves to Paris where she is significant, in fact essential, in helping House of Christian Dior launch its first major event. But Then a figure from her past reappears and threatens to destroy her whole future. How can Alix bring him to justice?
This immersive book takes one from war torn Switzerland to Dior and the golden age of French Fashion. There is also a moving love story included.
This completely enthralling story takes readers from the dangerous, intrigue-filled rooms in Switzerland where elites of both sides mingled and schemed during the war, to the glamorous halls of the House of Dior in the golden age of French fashion and journalism. Publishers Review
