Summary

Heartbroken and alone, Boston art curator Sarah West is grieving the recent deaths of her parents and the end of her marriage. Ultrasensible by nature, she's determined to stay the course to get her life back on track. But fate has something else in mind. While cleaning out her father's closet, she finds a letter from the famous Parisian courtesan Marthe de Florian, dated 1895. The subject? Sarah's great-great-aunt Louisa's death. Legend has it Louisa committed suicide...but this letter implies there's more to that story.
Determined to learn the truth, Sarah, against her nature, impulsively flies to Paris. There she's drawn into the world of her flatmate, the brilliant artist Laurent Chartier. As she delves deep into the glittering Belle Époque to unravel the mystery, Sarah finds that her aunt's story may offer her exactly what she needs to open up to love again.
Following Sarah in the present day and Louisa in the 1890s, this moving novel spans more than a century to tell the stories of two remarkable women.

Excruciating narration

This is a trite, predictable book, full of painfully familiar metaphors and Hallmark Channel-like romance. That aside, the narrator's interpretation of the voices made it almost intolerable to listen to for very long. All the accents sounded like what a high school actor would portray and her breathy voice for the main character made her sound like a schoolgirl. This is by far one of the worst audiobooks I have ever purchased.

HORRENDOUS NARRRATOR

I listened to the other two books by this author - and they were fantastic! I was sooo looking forward to book #3. This narrator with her ridiculous accents and portrayal of one of the main characters in the story - just killed it for me!!! I should've relied on the reviews for this one :(
