The Dollmaker - This wonderfully well-written book takes an independent woman who can handle almost anything in the back country of Kentucky and changes her into a shell of a woman as a result of living in the City of Detroit during WWII when the people there depend on the war continuing to make a living.
Paris, France: 1860s. Hundreds of houses are being razed, whole neighborhoods reduced to ashes. By order of Emperor Napoleon III, Baron Haussmann has set into motion a series of large-scale renovations that will permanently alter the face of old Paris, molding it into a “modern city.” The reforms will erase generations of history—and in the midst of the tumult, one woman will take a stand. #bookrecommendation #paris #france
