One mysterious book that threads their lives together.

I’ll See You in Paris is based on the real life of Gladys Spencer-Churchill, the Duchess of Marlborough, a woman whose life was so rich and storied it could fill several books. Nearly a century after Gladys’s heyday, a young woman’s quest to understand the legendary Duchess takes her from a charming hamlet in the English countryside, to a dilapidated manse kept behind barbed wire, and ultimately, to Paris, where answers will be found at last. In the end, she not only solves the riddle of the Duchess but also uncovers the missing pieces in her own life.
At once a great love story and literary mystery, I’ll See You in Paris will entertain and delight, with an unexpected ending that will leave readers satisfied and eager for Gable’s next novel.

Interesting premise...tedious writing
A tough book to get through. The characters do not come to life. Interesting twists, but would love to see this story rewritten reworked.
I’ll See You in Paris by Michelle Gable starts in 2001 in Virginia. Laurel Haley is a going to Banbury, England to sell a home she owns (her daughter did not even know she owned a home in England). Her daughter, Annabelle aka Annie is going with her. Laurel has always refused to discuss her past with Annie. Nor will she discuss Annie’s biological father. Before they leave for the airport, Annie notices an old, blue book of her mothers. Annie picks it up and brings it along with her (but lies to everyone about it). When Annie goes to a pub, an older gentleman, Gus who recognizes the book. Annie gets information from him and also does a little investigating (and trespassing). Annie slowly unravels the mystery as well as her mother’s past (it was an odd book).
I'll See You in Paris is an extremely difficult book to read. It is written in a confusing format that makes the reader want to give up by the end of the third chapter (this is where I wanted to chuck the book across the room). I just did not like the story or the characters. The novel does contain foul language (and it was not needed). The only thing I liked about I'll See You in Paris is the cover (which is what attracted me to the book). It is only in the last twenty percent of the book does the story start to come together. However, the ending was disappointing. I give I’ll See You in Paris 1 out of 5 stars.
I received a complimentary copy of I’ll See You in Paris from NetGalley in exchange for an honest evaluation of the book!
