The Milliner's Secret by Natalie Me Evan is the story of a young lady who left the abusive relationship with her father to move to Paris. Cora met a stranger in her travel and he helped her set up her new life as a milliner in Paris.
Set before WWII, Cora befriends a German who is also a high-ranking officer. He becomes her lover but during their relationship he would suddenly disappear and reappear, without any notice. However, she seeks protection from him. She also discovers that her work is filled with competion, not all of it nice.
Natlie Meg Evan is created a story that flows well and has characters that are complex but yet connect to the reader.
I was given this book by NetGalley in exchange for my honest review.
