The Milliner's Secret surprised me. I didn't think I was going to like it - how wrong I was.Cora Masson works in a hat factory in England; her life holds few pleasures. She works long hours to save money and invariably has all that she has earned taken by her drunken violent father. During a rare day out at the races with her friend Donal, she encounters a handsome stranger, Dietrich von Ebling; to escape her home life she travels to France with him. Once there she reinvents herself as Coralie d [...]

The Milliners Secret is the second novel from Natalie Meg Evans. Following on from the success of her début novel The Dress Thief (which won an award) the author takes us back in time to late 1930's London and to Paris during the German occupation in what was the horrific World War Two. I have to admit The Dress Thief is still sitting in my T.B.R and having heard several characters from the first book make a reappearance I was bit apprehensive about reading this one. I don't like reading sequel [...]

This review was originally posted on [Between My Lines]I absolutely adored the concept of this book and the pretty cover didn’t hurt either.  In a nutshell, it was a GOOD read with a FAB setting and a FIERCE main character.   I enjoyed it but not quite as much as I had hoped for. Balancing the books is a quick fire review where I list the assets and liabilities of a book (as I see them) and leave you decide if you think this book is worth investing in. The Assets of The Milliner’s Secre [...]

I received this book from NetGalley and Bookouture in exchange for an honest review.I am not sure how this book is getting so many rave reviews and I am clearly in the minority here. The Milliner's Secret was a very long, very drawn out novel that never really went anywhere. For the first 100 pages or so, I was very captivated and very interested in where this story was going, but then it go so convoluted and the author spent way too much time going into detail about the war. Understandably, the [...]

I went into The Milliner's Secret with great hopes. I enjoy novels set in Paris during World War II and saw its 4+ stars. While the premise is intriguing, the result did not live up to its potential. It is quite beautifully written, with a nice use of French and German names and places. However, this book is in dire need of serious editing. It is too long and convoluted, with too many situations that are unnecessary to the story.

This is my second book by this author and I am hooked. While they most definitely can be read as stand alone's, you will notice that several of the same characters show up in both The Dress Thief and this one. Mostly set in Paris during German occupation, it provides a very entertaining story. Love, intrigue, secrets, lies, adultery, plagiarism, spies, hat making, danger, and abuse come together to make this a story you will long remember. I love historical fiction about London or Paris during t [...]

Wow this book was an emotional roller coaster of emotions. WWII in Paris trying to survive and helping others. Cora seemed to put everyone before herself. There were many characters and different story lines going but they always seemed to connect easily. The author does a wonderful job making you feel as if you are there in the story. You can see her making her hats. I loved it.

I was first drawn to this book by the cover. The gorgeous colors and figure dressed so prettily caught my attention while browsing future titles. When I saw it offered on NetGalley, I jumped at the chance to read and review. For the most part, expectations were met.The character of Coralie took some getting used to. In the beginning, she read as a shallow diva out only to further her dreams and poo to everyone else. I found myself feeling no sympathy for her at all. Yet, once the crap hit the f [...]

This book was brilliant. I love historical fiction in this period. The plot was great and the characters came alive for me. I didn't want it to end. One of the best books I've read this year :)

Confession time: I'm tired of books and films that deal with World War II and the Holocaust. I tend to actively avoid them.I know. I know.I'm terrible, right?It's not that I avoid them because I don't think the period is important. There's other reasons: 1) I feel that we tend to completely ignore other wars and genocides of the 20th century & 2) often, the period is used cheaply.Let me explain:. The events of World War II and the Holocaust are extremely important and ought not be forgotten. [...]

Novel set in Paris (“French was the language of the hat trade”)The Milliner’s Secret is a follow on to The Dress Thief, set in pre-war Paris but can absolutely be read as a stand alone.Cora is a Bermondsey girl through and through, with a dad who, at the drop of a hat (no pun intended) would beat seven bells out of her (in other words, thrash her to within an inch of her life). She works in a lowly position at milliners Pettrew and Lofthouse.Through her work she wins a ticket to attend Eps [...]

Absolutely beautiful! A must read! An epic sweeping love story, a story of humanity, a story of war, and a love affair with Paris. A story filled with love, heartbreak, betrayal, passion, suffering, and hope. Twists and turns galore that will leave you spell bound. Add a heaping dose of glamour and couture fashion. What more can you want in a book? An excellent writer with a fine touch? Natalie Meg Evans is just that. I'd never read anything by this author before but I will read everything of he [...]

I really enjoyed this book. It was a sweeping tale of Cora Masson, a poor Londoner in the 1930's who changes her fate and her name when she meets a handsome German man, Dietrich. He takes her to Paris and she begins to work toward her dream of designing and owning a hat store. Time passes as World War II begins and Paris is occupied by the Germans. Dietrich returns to her life - I'm thinking "please don't be a Nazi - please don't be a Nazi" - but he is! I thought this was a great story of one wo [...]

An enjoyable historical novel set mainly in Paris in the 1930s and 1940s. A tad long, but really enjoyed the characters, the well-evoked setting, and learning a little bit about the world of hat design and making. Thanks to Netgalley and the publisher for a copy to review.

Fun book in occupied Paris during WWII- loved it

Very well done. The characters seemed real and the plot fit the times.

Loved this book The heroine of this book demonstrates that life is full of good people who if given a chance can overcome almost any reasonable circumstance.

What an exciting book of twists and turns. It captured the spirit of Paris (as I envision it to be in WWII) perfectly. Wonderful read for WWII fans!!

GoodThis was interesting but confusing in parts. The characters were memorable and I really enjoyed coralie . She was very brave

Grrr. I loved this story. I hated the ending. Where's my happily ever after?

Im Jahre 1937 lebt die junge Cora Masson allein bei ihrem gewalttätigen Vater in London. Ihren Unterhalt verdient sie in einer Hutfabrik, doch das mühsam erarbeitete Geld wird von ihren Vater in Alkohol umgesetzt. Durch Zufall lernt sie den Deutschen Dietrich von Elbing, bekannter Kunsthändler, auf der Rennbahn kennen. Er bietet ihr an, sie mit nach Paris zu nehmen. Zunächst zögert sie, doch als ihr Vater sie wieder einmal angreift, flüchtet sie Hals über Kopf mit Dietrich. Zunächst lebt [...]

"The Milliner's Secret" is a great introduction of Natalie Meg Evans to me. Even though I have her debut novel "The Dress Thief" on my TBR pile, I still didn't come to reading it, which is a real shame and I am going to make it up as soon as possible. I love reading a good historical fiction and this author for sure brilliantly slots into this category.This is for sure not a quick, easy read, and I don't only mean the number of pages. There are many subplots woven together and connected to each [...]

The Girl Who Dreamed of Paris written by the super talented Natalie Meg Evans for me was one of the best books I have ever read. From the first page, I was totally involved in the life of the main character Cora Mason, as she runs away to Paris and faces a new life where soon her life will soon be overrun with danger while she tries to become the woman she knows she can be.When we first meet Cora she is living with her abusive father while working in a factory for a pittance. She goes to the Der [...]

The Milliner's Secret is the first book by Natalie Meg Evans that I have read and enjoyed it. Actually, I listened to it and it was very loooong but good! The setting begins in pre-WWII London and travels over to pre-WWII Paris. It runs through occupied Paris and then back to London. Cora is a young girl in London working in a hat factory and through the magic of fiction and influence of a German officer, ends up running a hat shop in Paris. Espionage, war, murder, abuseyou name it, this book ha [...]

I loved this book. Having listened to it via audio it took me a rather long time as I was somewhat limited in my listening times, but in doing so was able to relish this book and all the historical background, leading me to read up on WWII France (Paris). I especially enjoyed how fashion, specifically millinery, became the background for this somewhat heart wrenching story. This will certainly be at the top of my favorite books for a long time to come. I am an avid fan of historical fiction and [...]
