Natasha Lester delivers a fascinating backdrop for this romantic suspense story, The Three Lives of Alix St. Pierre.
Although she grew up surrounded by over-the-top Hollywood glamour, Alix St. Pierre was never truly part of that world.
She’s an orphan, and she’s always felt like she is on the outside looking in at other people’s fabulous lives. Her opportunity to fit in presents itself in 1943, as World War II rages and a huge number of American men head overseas to fight. Alix lands a job in publicity, tasked with recruiting women into the workforce to keep factories running, businesses operating, and farms producing.
She’s smart, persuasive, and quick-witted under pressure, and these skills catch the attention of a government official. Suddenly, Alix has an even more important assignment: travel to Switzerland and gather intelligence that can help the Allied war efforts. She works with a German informant but isn’t quite sure just how trustworthy her contact is.
After the end of the war, Alix moves to Paris, poised to take a job as the director of publicity for the brand-new House of Dior. She tries to forget everything that she saw and experienced during the war, but there is one thing she can’t escape: Alix is carrying a terrible, dangerous secret. When someone from her past appears in Paris and threatens to destroy the bright future she is working so hard to build, Alix realizes that she is the only one who can right some terrible wrongs. Can she find the happiness she wants while she helps others find the justice they deserve?
