Publisher's Summary

A lush debut novel in the vein of Kathleen Tessaro’s international best seller, Elegance, about a beautiful woman working as a model for Christian Dior in post-war Paris, who discovers astonishing secrets about herself and the fabulous people around her. 

Raised on a vast Australian sheep farm, the beautiful Grace Woods is compelled to travel to tumultuous, post-war Paris in order to start a new life. While working as a glamorous model for Christian Dior, the world’s newly acclaimed emperor of fashion, Grace mixes with counts and princesses, authors and artists, diplomats and politicians.

Amongst those she befriends are Pablo Picasso, Julia Child, and the future Jackie Kennedy. But when Grace falls in love with the handsome Phillippe Boyer, she doesn’t know that he is leading a double life, nor that his past might hold secrets and lies that will turn her life upside down. 

Based on a true story, The Paris Model by debut fiction author Alexandra Joel, is an unforgettable tale of glamour, family secrets, and heartbreak.

Outstanding

Excellent story and with equally great performance! I thoroughly enjoyed every chapter. This is the first time I’ve gotten a book from Alexandra Joel & it will not be the last! I look forward to purchasing more from Ms Joel.
