Synopsis: A world at war. A beautiful young star. A mission no one expected.Paris, 1944
Celebrated singer Genevieve Dumont is both a star and a smokescreen. An unwilling darling of the Nazis, the chanteuse’s position of privilege allows her to go undetected as an ally to the resistance.
When her estranged mother, Lillian de Rocheford, is captured by Nazis, Genevieve knows it won’t be long before the Gestapo succeeds in torturing information out of Lillian that will derail the upcoming allied invasion. The resistance movement is tasked with silencing her by any means necessary—including assassination. But Genevieve refuses to let her mother become yet one more victim of the war. Reuniting with her long-lost sister, she must find a way to navigate the perilous cross-currents of Occupied France undetected—and in time to save Lillian’s life. (Synopsis from Goodreads)
My Thoughts: The Black Swan of Paris was a really moving novel of World War II. I enjoyed it a lot. It was full of danger, heartache, and suspense. I liked Genevieve Dumont's story. She led a very exciting and dangerous life. She had to walk a very fine line while supporting the resistance and not letting the Nazis get wind of what she was doing. Then her mother gets captured and she has to rescue her.
This book really highlighted the danger during that time. The sadness and uncertainty that permeated everyday life. It was something to read. I think it did a great job.
I enjoyed the romance. It was definitely a slow build up, but it was worth it.
If you're looking for a good World War II historical drama, I'd definitely recommend The Black Swan of Paris. It's good.
