Review: Moonlight Over Paris
My book club’s most recent read was Moonlight Over Paris by Jennifer Robson. It’s set after World War I and is the story of Helene, a young woman who leaves her home in England to live with her aunt in Paris to attend art school. She’s happy to leave the scandal of a broken engagement behind and enjoys the freedom her aunt allows her. Helene loves the friends and the life she’s made but is faced with a difficult decision about her future.
Moonlight Over Paris was a little too sweet and predictable for my taste but everyone else really enjoyed it. Someone mentioned that it was refreshing to read because no one died. I think everyone enjoyed the time period and the Paris setting. I will admit that our discussion wasn’t great but we did find a few things to talk about. If you’re looking for a light, quick read this summer, you might want to consider Moonlight Over Paris.
