The Three Lives of Alix St. Pierre
by Natasha Lester
PBR Review: (by- Linda )

Alix St Pierre is fierce in both mind and body. A talented, hard-working woman. It's 1943, and she is recruited into the OSS as a spy and sent to Switzerland. She ends up working with the Italian partisans to secure the supplies, especially weapons and ammunition, they need to fight the Nazis. However, some of her methods are questionable, and not everything goes according to plan. So, when the war ends, she is haunted by some events.

Wanting to escape her war efforts and past, she returns to Paris and is hired by Dior to help launch his new couture clothing line. But, as she immerses herself in work, the past comes back to haunt her once again.

This is a unique take on historical fiction; it combines war, espionage, romance, and fashion, making it fun but, at times, intense and intriguing. I loved learning about the early years of fashion design houses and Christian Dior before he was well known. Overall, excellent historical fiction.
