Last Train to Paris

Rose Manon is an American journalist who is sent overseas in the early 1930s. While in Paris, her cousin and favorite aunt arrive on a visit, and the cousin is murdered. This actually happened to a distant relation of the author, so she wove a story around it. Some of the characters are real people: Colette and Aurora Sand, and 2 of the lawyers in the story. Rose travels to Berlin to cover events happening in the main city of the Nazis, and falls in love with a Jewish man. As the situation worsens, Rose tries to help her friends and lover escape the regime, but tragedy ensues. I found the novel a little tough to navigate; the writing is very serious and disheartening. Not for the faint-hearted…
