Join Jade Beer in conversation with Rosie Walsh, author of The Love of My Life to discuss Jade Beer's new novel, The Last Dress from Paris.
 

The secret is hidden within a collection of Dior dresses.... London, 2017. There's no one Lucille loves more than her grandmother (not even her mother, she's ashamed to say). So when her beloved Granny Sylvie asks Lucille to help secure the return of something that is precious to her, she's happy to help. The next thing she knows, Lucille is on a train to Paris, tasked with retrieving a priceless Dior dress. But not everything is as it seems, and what Lucille finds in a small Parisian apartment will have her scouring the city for answers to a question that could change her entire life. Paris, 1952. Postwar France is full of glamour and privilege, and Alice Ainsley is in the middle of it all. As the wife to the British ambassador to France, Alice's job is to see and be seen-even if that wasn't quite what she signed up for. Her husband showers her with jewels, banquets, and couture Dior dresses, but his affection has become distressingly illusive. As the strain on her marriage grows, Alice's only comfort is her bond with her trusted lady's maid, Marianne. But, when a new face appears in her drawing room, Alice finds herself swept up in an epic love affair that has her yearning to follow her heart...no matter the consequences. Told in alternating timelines, The Last Dress from Paris is a lush, evocative tale of two women's enduring friendship, and explores the ties that bind us together, the threads of our past that give us hope, and the secrets we hold that make us who we are.
