This is certainly a twist on a classic story. The setting of war torn Paris in the late 1800’s is extremely well depicted, with views and experience hardly heard. The author goes into great detail while setting up the characters and the scene. While also giving hints of things to come since the narration is of Mademoiselle Odile herself retelling the horrible events of years past.
It is quite a story, leading the reader through the emotions of Odile, and state of mind of rebellious Paris. A well written adapatation of a timeless classic, a great addition to any library.
