The Paris Sister by Adrienne Chinn

Happy Saturday! I’m on tour with Rachel’s Random Resources with a historical fiction book. This is the second book in The Three Fry Sisters series. The first book, Love in a Time of War, was published in February 2022.

About the Book:

Three sisters separated by distance but bound by love

The Fry sisters enter the Roaring Twenties forever changed by their experiences during the Great War. Now, as each of their lives unfold in different corners of the globe, they come to realise that the most important bond is that of family.

Desperate to save the man she loves, Etta leaves behind the life she has made for herself in Capri and enters the decadent world of Parisian society with all its secrets and scandals.

Celie’s new life on the Canadian prairies brings mixed blessings – a daughter to adore, but a husband who isn’t the man who holds her heart.

In Egypt, Jessie’s world is forever changed by a devastating loss.

And back in London – where each of their adventures began – their mother Christina watches as the pieces of her carefully orchestrated existence begin to shatter…with implications for them all…


This is the second book in a series but it can be read as a standalone. The story follows three sisters from 1919 to 1929. Two of the sisters live in Europe and one sister has just moved to Canada.

I enjoyed reading about the sisters. The chapters are titled with who is talking and the date/year. A lot of history is sprinkled in such as Chanel before it was well know and famous authors. What a time to be alive and experience those part of history before they were history. The sisters go through happy and sad times but all three persist.
