Review: Moonlight Over Paris

      "Moonlight Over Paris" is a historical fiction piece written by author Jennifer Robson. The heroine is Lady Helena Montagu-Douglas-Parr. Lady Parr leaves a sheltered aristocratic life and goes to live with her free-spirited aunt at the end of WWI. Jennifer Robson is very detailed in her writing.
      Helena had no formal education which I found ironic since she comes from royalty. I have not researched royalty and education, so I would not know. However, she is quite an artist, given she has plenty of time for that. While in Paris, Helena enrolls in art school. Her professor, Maitre Czerny, seems to be very strict in his ways.
      I had a hard time following the book because of the French words. I would recommend this book to a French I student. I chose to review this book because I enjoy reading historical fiction. This book proved to be a challenge to my reading each time I came to a French word.

I can relate to having difficulty. Sometimes books are just too difficult to figure out. I pass those by.

Have a fabulous day. ☺
