Publisher Description

'Captivating and evocative' Tania Blanchard, author of The Girl from Munich

Sometimes you have to lose everything to find yourself ... A stunning novel of love, betrayal and family secrets for all fans of Fiona McIntosh and Natasha Lester.

After a shocking discovery, Grace Woods leaves her vast Australian sheep station and travels to tumultuous post-war Paris in order to find her true identity.

While working as a mannequin for Christian Dior, the world's newly acclaimed emperor of fashion, Grace mixes with counts and princesses, authors and artists, diplomats and politicians.

But when Grace falls for handsome Philippe Boyer she doesn't know that he is leading a double life, nor that his past might inflict devastating consequences upon her. As she is drawn into Philippe's dangerous world of international espionage, Grace discovers both the shattering truth of her origins - and that her life is in peril.

Inspired by an astonishing true story, The Paris Model is a tale of glamour, family secrets and heartbreak that takes you from the rolling plains of country Australia to the elegant salons of Paris.

'A wonderful, immersive historical novel' New Idea

'A charming tale rich with family and fashion' Belinda Alexandra

'The cracking plot and the general glamour carry the reader along' Sydney Morning Herald

'This gorgeous historical is the perfect summer escape. Post-World War 2 Paris literally drips from the page. Grace is a wonderful protagonist and surrounded by well-drawn and often fabulous characters, and Joel's prose is rich and descriptive. Highly enjoyable' Better Reading

MrsMacNally ,

Great Australian saga from the perspective of a country gilr turned Paris model

Love, love, loved it. I looked forward every night to getting into bed and devouring more chapters. So beautifully written, I could visualise every scene in my head, Read like a Netflix series. Like an Australian version of Bridgerton.

The Paris Model

A lovely story full of places so easily imagined, from the Australian bush to the streets of Paris. I thoroughly enjoyed every word. Highly entertaining and one I would definitely recommend.

Shallow

I kept hoping it would get better, but The Paris Model remained a shallow story about silly (but terribly beautiful) people throughout.
