From the bestselling author of The Aviator’s Wife and The Swans of Fifth Avenue, Mistress of the Ritz is a love story for the ages. June 1940: When the German army sweeps into Paris, setting up headquarters at the iconic Hôtel Ritz, beautiful, reckless American Blanche Auzello, and her very proper French husband, Claude, must navigate a terrifying new reality. For the falsehoods they tell to survive, and to strike a blow against their Nazi “guests,” spin a web of deceit that ensnares everything and everyone they cherish. Based on true events, “Mistress of the Ritz” is an inspiring story of a woman and a man who discover the best in each other amid the turbulence of war.
