**5 out of 5 stars**

England, 1939. Talented pilot Skye joins the British war effort where she encounters her estranged sister Liberty, and childhood soulmate Nicholas who is now engaged to enigmatic Frenchwoman Margaux.
Paris, 1947. Designer Christian Dior unveils his extravagant first collection to a world weary of war and grief. He names his debut fragrance, Miss Dior, in tribute to his sister, Catherine, who worked for the French Resistance.
Present day. Australian fashion conservator Kat discovers a secret wardrobe filled with priceless Dior gowns in her grandmother’s vacant cottage. As she delves into the mystery, Kat begins to doubt everything she thought she knew about her beloved grandmother.
An unspeakable betrayal will entwine all of their fates.

I really shy away from historical fiction set in world war times; I over read it when I was younger and so am reluctant to get into it most of the time. BUT. Every Natasha Lester book I’ve read has completely hooked me in. I love them! When I hear she’s got a new book coming out, it goes on my TBR list immediately!! This novel is yet another winner. Skye and Kat are fantastic lead characters. Intelligent, strong, beautiful, brave, kind-hearted…what’s not to like about these women? I love that this author specialises in highlighting the roles women played during the war years despite the opposition they were up against. This book will make you smile, frown, laugh and cry; bittersweet is the perfect word for how you’ll feel after you finish. If you are a historical fiction fan, you truly are missing out if you don’t read this book.
100% recommend this fantastic novel.
