For readers of Lilac Girls and The Nightingale comes an internationally bestselling World War II novel that spans generations, crosses oceans, and proves just how much two young women are willing to sacrifice for love and family. 1940: As the Germans advance upon Paris, young seamstress Estella Bissette is forced to flee everything she's ever known.

And that's a wrap! My last book for #14Books14Weeks and what an amazing book it is! Thank you so much to everyone for joining me in this summer challenge 😘 I know our TBR piles will never be complete and if they were we would probably all panic lol 😂 I cleared 14 plus a couple off my TBR stack but I think I added just as many, shocking I know! 😅 So many books, so little time, and oh how summer sped by so quickly! Sigh...
