Review: The Paris Seamstress

The Paris SeamstressThe Paris Seamstress by Natasha Lester

My rating: 4 of 5 stars

Yet another classic from Natasha Lester! Her depiction of life in troubled times, and the far-reaching effect this has on the self-confidence, contentment, and love-lives of so many people is outstanding.

I admit it took me 169 pages to feel anything though: I couldn’t identify with the characters before then and maybe that’s why I found time confusing (was that night in Paris really just one night?). But it might be my own fault – I love Lester’s work so much I probably put unfair expectations on her.

I was delighted not to pick all the resolutions – I love it when an author can keep me in suspense, making me feel so smug when all along she’s carefully in control. More than once I was blown away and moved to tears, or driven to feel her characters’ frustration.

This is definitely a great read: beautifully executed, moving, passionate, and warm.

I received a free copy of this book in exchange for my honest opinion
