I truly enjoyed this book and the varied characters, time periods and settings. I could envision exactly what the Grange, the rundown estate where much of the book takes place, would look, smell and feel like. The Duchess of Marlborough was such an outlandish character in the book that I was stunned to read in the author's note that the Duchess of Marlborough was in fact a real person and many of the items included in the book are historically accurate. Finding that out made me want to turn around and read the book all over again.
I'll See You in Paris would make a great book club selection and the discussion could be enhanced by including some of the real life background of the Duchess of Marlborough.
I received this book from St. Martin's Press, Thomas Dunne Book through Net Galley in exchange for an honest review.
