Free read The Dressmakers Gift Download õ PDF, DOC, TXT or eBook ½ Fiona Valpy Fiona Valpy ½ 4 review A Washington Post and Charts bestseller From the bestselling author of The Beekeeper’s Promise comes a gripping story of three young women faced with impossible choices How will history – and their families – judge them Paris 1940 With the city occupied by the Nazis three young seamstresses go about their normal lives as best they can But all three are hiding secrets. 35 starsThis novel follows other modern historical fiction trends the modern day character Harriet finds an old photograph in box that shows her grandmother as a young lady with two other girls and Harriet then makes it her goal to uncover the past of her familial history concerning her grandmother ClaireThe first chapter was very clich Harriet moves to Paris obtaining a job in the same building that her grandmother Claire worked in And she settles in the same apartment that her grandmother lived in And Harriet s roommate in that apartment happens to be the granddaughter of one of the girls in the picture who also lived in that same apartment Very convenient beginningBut the story does get better and becomes entertainingThe synopsis provided is accurate for the most part The three seamstresses in 1940 Claire Harriet s grandmother Mireille and Vivienne live together in a small apartment and slowly develop a trusted friendship Their involvement with the resistance is mostly limited to courier depending on the character though they do assistant in helping people out of German occupied France to safety With none of them being Jewish the Jew s oppression is merely a backdrop in the story and is only mentioned occasionally It does provide some insight into Flossenburg camp not as a Jew but as a traitorI did not enjoy Harriet s chapters as much They seemed like fillers and at times the story could be followed easily without having read some of Harriet s chapters However her chapters are not long so it is bearable In Harriet s chapters she mostly recounts the previous chapter of what was revealed to her about her grandmother She also struggles to cope with the loss of her mother to suicide and freuently Harriet uestions if she has inherited trauma genesOverall I liked the story and found it to be a light uick average read that at times intensified It focused on the girl s relationship development and their work as a seamstress in Nazi occupied Paris until approximately 45% on a Kindle The plot then heightens again at 61 % on a Kindle It does have interesting tidbits of historical information lightly sprinkled here and thereThere are an abundance of fashion references and scenes Highly recommend if you love Paris fashion It did not include any vulgar language sex scenes or explicit violence

Free read The Dressmakers Gift Download õ PDF, DOC, TXT or eBook ½ Fiona Valpy Fiona Valpy ½ 4 review War scarred Mireille is fighting with the Resistance; Claire has been seduced by a German officer; and Vivienne’s involvement is something she can’t reveal to either of themTwo generations later Claire’s English granddaughter Harriet arrives in Paris rootless and adrift desperate to find a connection with her past Living and working in the same building on the Rue Car. Fantastic with one small noteFantastic book It was gripping and suspenseful painful and emotional uplifting and allegorical for the times My one note is that the story of the three seamstresses is set up to be revealed to Harriet through some letters I don t want to say any spoilers so I ll just say that it seems unlikely that the person writing the letters would have such in depth knowledge of events that took place without himher I loved the idea behind the letters but it was hard to believe in points Perhaps a diary or some other artifacts from elsewhere could have helped bolster the believability
