Wild lavender

By Belinda Alexandra

Available on eAudio or book format at the Gympie Library.

Simone Fleurier is wrenched from her home on a Provenc?al lavender farm at the age of fourteen after the accidental death of her father. Forced to become a maid at the boarding house of her Aunt Augustine in Marseilles, Simone’s life is hard and impoverished.

After meeting the beautiful Camille Casal – a star at the local music hall, Simone has a dream that one day she too will be a famous singer and dancer. Years later, as a World War surrounds her, she has to make choices that will haunt her for the rest of her life.

I really like how Belinda Alexandra weaves history into the lives of her characters. Another good book to listen to.
