Absolutely beautiful writing that immediately draws the reader in and doesn't let go until the very end. I found myself staying up well into the night to finish this book and then when it was over, I was sad that it had ended. Ms. Jenoff obviously did a lot of research before writing this book and it shows in the information and details that are given throughout. I am not always a fan of dual timelines, but I actually loved it in this book and I find that I now have a very different opinion on the use of dual timelines. I am a historical fiction fanatic and The Lost Girls of Paris is now on my list of very favorites. I highly recommend this book and I look forward to reading more by Ms. Jenoff in the future.
