Wild Lavender Summary


Wild Lavender by Belinda Alexandra

A sweeping historical epic from an exciting new talent. Moving from the lavender fields of Provence to the glitz and glamour of Paris, the war-torn streets of Berlin to the promises of New York, it's the story of a young girl who gets the chance of lifetime -- before seeing it ripped apart by war! Simone Fleurier is wrenched from her home on a Provencal lavender farm after the death of her father. Forced to become a maid at her aunt's boarding house in Marseilles, Simone's life is hard and impoverished. But one of her aunt's boarders, the beautiful Camille Casal -- a star at the local music hall -- gives Simone a dream -- that one day too she will be a famous singer and dancer. Years later, the famous Simone Fleurier, toast of Paris society, watches the Nazi troops occupy the city. Suddenly, her world is turned upside down, and Simone must make new and dangerous choices.
