    Natasha arranged this novel really well too, with clearly set out parts identifying which era and character you were The Paris seamstress book reading. All of this of course would have greatly enhanced my enjoyment of The Paris Seamstress, but even so, I think this is a novel that anyone can enjoy, special interest in fashion or not. The story is gripping, detailed and despite some of the heartbreaking plot twists, thoroughly enjoyable. Her novels are always so good, yet keep getting better—how is that possible?! I loved the characters, I loved the tension and the heart ache, the unveiling of the secrets, bit by bit, but not too stretched out.

    Natasha Lester's novel features not one but two love stories, spanning continents and centuries A beautiful story spanning two generations of women trying to make their mark in the fashion industry. Couldn't make it to the end--although I got further than I should have hoping it was going to go somewhere. I also really liked how this book wa structured and how it kept swapping time lines.

I was worried with all the names and time periods it would get a little confusing, but the chapters are separated by time periods and was so well written I never found myself confused.

The present day Fabienne pages at times were sappy, hard to fathom and poorly written.

But the love is still there and I remember the feel of fabric, taut beneath your scissors, that crisp sound as you cut out the pieces ready for a new outfit. For the most part they were not met.

She's bound for New York City with her signature gold dress, a few francs, and a dream: to make her mark on the world of fashion. I never had as much as enthusiasm for working on the project once the cutting was done. Overall, The Paris Seamstress was a story from a different perspective then you would typically find in WWII era historical fiction piece and I really enjoyed reading it.

The story starts out on the brink of an invasion and I am always emotional when I consider all the families that would be affected by those circumstances.
