Simone Fleurier is wrenched from her home on a Provencal lavender farm at the age of 14 after the accidental death of her father. Forced to become a maid at the boarding house of her Aunt Augustine in Marseilles, Simone's life is hard and impoverished. But one of her aunt's boarders, the beautiful Camille Casal, a star at the local music hall, gives Simone a dream: that one day she too will be a famous singer and dancer. Years later, the famous Simone Fleurier, toast of Paris, watches Nazi troops occupy the city. Suddenly, her world is turned upside down, and Simone must make new and dangerous choices.

Listener Opinions

    " This book started out beautifully. The whole middle just dragged on and on and on, and the end was really good too. All in all very disappointing. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Lis | 12/31/2013

    " Another brilliant story. Very moving. "

    " I loved this story. It was very well written and the characters were easy to warm to. A wonderful novel I'll read again in years to come. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Mel | 12/6/2013

    " Another great book by this author. Made me a bit teary at the end "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Lisa | 12/5/2013

    " Belinda Alexandra tells a timeless story set within a dazzling historical context. Quintessential protagonists and their charming leading men meet glamorous antagonists and fragments of an lost era. Enjoyable to indulge in. An absolute page turner! "

    " Blah! Didn't bother finishing this... Not my cup of tea I'm afraid. "

    " Loved the last quarter of the book - but unfortunately found the first three quarters a bit slow and a bit hard to get into. Fortunately the end made up for that and the parts of the book that focused around the main character's involvement in World War II were totally compelling. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Melissa Herweynen | 1/21/2013

    " Thoroughly enjoyed this book, couldn't put it done while on holidays. Originally judged it by its cover not thinking much of it but was pleasantly surprised. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Jane Scott | 10/10/2012

    " Not worth buying. One of those books you borrow from a friend or the library as you would only read it once. Story is a bit predictable and soppy but entertaining enough to finish the book. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Bluesky | 4/30/2012

    " A very disappointing follow up to White Gardenia. The main character was sickeningly perfect - everything fell into her lap. It seems to me Belinda Alexander wrote this to share what she'd learned in her research , rather than because she had a cracking good story to tell. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Emma | 3/30/2012

    " Good story, love the historical relevance to France during WW2, just lacking a bit of oomph. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Terri | 3/14/2012

    " Another great historical novel from Belinda Alexandra, set in France and Germany prior to and during WWII "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Alison | 1/22/2012

    " A 40th birthday present from a good friend "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Liz Needle | 11/10/2011

    " Initially I enjoyed this book and was interested in the description of life as a music hall artist interesting. But as the book dragged on, it all became a bit improbable - just how much can happen to any one heroine. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Ina | 4/25/2011

    " Excellent novel! The author uses a beautiful poetic language which makes you unable to stop reading. Craving to read more from her. "
