Paris Mends Broken Hearts is a book that is hard to describe. Historical fiction - yes. But more of a glimpse into a life than anything romantic, dramatic, or historically significant (other than it happens after WWII, I guess). It a journey through a small section of the life of Gwendoline Delacroix who lost her husband in the war.
After spending a lot of time locked behind the safe walls of their estate, she sets out one morning and ends up finding herself and a purpose in life again. This doesn't happen on its own, but with the help of her sister-in-law and a woman she is introduced to in Paris.
A very pleasant story, but if you are looking for something that will keep you on the edge of your seat, this isn't for you. If you're looking for a stroll through the past in someone else's shoes - then definitely pick this one up. It's a quick read, and I'm glad I gave it a shot.
