History buffs and Francophiles alike will enjoy this expertly narrated fictionalized account of Jacqueline Bouvier's year of study abroad. Caroline Hewitt captures the magic of postwar Paris with her adept handling of French, German, and New Jersey accents. In narrating both male and female characters of a variety of ages, Hewitt shows her skill and experience. A little like a coming-of-age story, Mah's novel weaves copious historical details and incomparable descriptions of Parisian culture, showing both the fragility of post-occupation France and the brilliant promise of its revitalization. The vibrancy of this novel is beautifully brought to life in Hewitt's interpretation. C.F. Winner of AudioFile Earphones Award © AudioFile 2022, Portland, Maine [Published: OCTOBER 2022]
