She becomes embroiled in subterfuge, rather wishing she hadn’t, further complicated by her feelings of love for a German naval officer although she is engaged. All she wants is for life to return to normalcy but that is a forlorn hope in the aftermath of WW1.
This is a compelling read, a way of looking at things from a different perspective with some twists and turns that make a good novel a great novel.
Margot is engaged to Stefan who she has known since their schooldays. It was an impulsive engagement and one which she may be regretting. Stefan was about to go to war and Margot accepted his marriage proposal without thinking about the consequences too much. When Stefan returns at the end of the war he is badly injured and Margot is torn between her feelings for Stefan and her desire for independence.
With her father concentrating on the conference, Margot is left to her own devices and is bored. Her ensuing friendship with Krysia, a young Polish musician who has secrets of her own, brings her into contact with some shady characters and the story then leads to blackmail and espionage. Margot finds herself having to make some very difficult decisions, not least because she has met Georg, a young German soldier who is also part of the delegation and brings into question her feelings for Stefan. Margo is helping Georg with some translation work for the conference and finds herself increasingly drawn to him.
This is more than just a romance story and I found it an interesting and compelling read. I didn't really know much about the Treaty of Versailles and after reading this book, I was interested enough to look into it further. There were occasions when the dialogue seemed out of place for the period but this didn't affect my overall enjoyment. The atmosphere of post-war Paris was well described and the characters were believable and engaging. There are secrets and twists throughout the book and it was interesting to see Margo's character mature as the story neared its conclusion.
I would certainly read more books by this author.
I love he 1st 2 books about WW11 and the Resistance workers. The descriptons are so vivid that you feel as if you are actually there. I am sure that this book will be loved by all those who read it and cannot wait for her next novl to come out,
