Historical glimpse

Although this is not a quick or a compelling read, it does give the reader a glimpse into the politics of the time through the eyes of a woman trying to keep a business afloat during Hitler's occupation of France. While her lifestyle definitely is not that of a middle class person, it is interesting to read about what is perceived to be her notions of love and life.
