It's the spring of 1924, and Lady Helena Montagu-Douglas-Parr has just arrived in France. On the mend after a near-fatal illness, she is ready to embrace the restless, heady allure of the City of Lights. Her parents have given her one year to live with her eccentric aunt in Paris and Helena means to make the most of her time. She's quickly drawn into the world of the Lost Generation and its circle of American expatriates, and with their encouragement, she finds the courage to pursue her dream of becoming an artist.

I was very disappointed in this novel. I look forward to this authors' work and found lack of a plot made the effort to finish the book just not worth it.

This book is a pretty weak and somewhat boring story.
Good bedtime reading! Snore.

This is a hard one to rate, because it's a fast read and enjoyable enough, but it also feels a trifle simplistic. The themes of the book and the journey the heroine undergoes make this feel more like a young adult book than an adult one (which I don't mean as a hit to YA! Just that it's hard for me to believe this protagonist is supposed to be in her late 20s, because her who journey of self-discovery feels like a coming-of-age story that would be more at home with a teenage protagonist). Fans of historical fiction will enjoy the 20s setting and the descriptions of clothing and parties, and there's a nice (though predictable) romantic subplot, but it lacks a certain oomph that would have made it a bit more memorable for me. Still, as I said, worth a read for fans of period pieces.
