Among them is Sam Howard, an irascible, infuriatingly honest correspondent for the Chicago Tribune. Dangerously attractive and deeply scarred by the war, Sam is unlike any man she's ever encountered. He offers her a glimpse of a future that is irresistible and impossible.As Paris rises from the ashes of war, so does Helena.

This book is a pretty weak and somewhat boring story.
Good bedtime reading! Snore.

This is a hard one to rate, because it's a fast read and enjoyable enough, but it also feels a trifle simplistic. The themes of the book and the journey the heroine undergoes make this feel more like a young adult book than an adult one (which I don't mean as a hit to YA! Just that it's hard for me to believe this protagonist is supposed to be in her late 20s, because her who journey of self-discovery feels like a coming-of-age story that would be more at home with a teenage protagonist). Fans of historical fiction will enjoy the 20s setting and the descriptions of clothing and parties, and there's a nice (though predictable) romantic subplot, but it lacks a certain oomph that would have made it a bit more memorable for me. Still, as I said, worth a read for fans of period pieces.
