I have just been on a thrilling and compelling journey to 1938 Paris with twin sisters Romaine (Romy) and Florence DuChamps in the truly captivating book "The Betrayal". The author Kate Furnivall has created an entertaining, intriguing and gripping story that I enjoyed from the start to the tense finish. Could you kill someone? Someone you love? Both sisters have something to prove and something to hide. Their worlds clash while fear stalks the streets of Paris. France is poised, ready to fall, but who will fall with her? I loved how we saw in the first chapter the sisters brought together in a tragic secret that would stay with them for the rest of their lives. This then quickly shifts to eight years later when Romy is a heavy drinking, reckless poker playing aviatrix and Florence is a happily married, privileged socialite with a beautiful daughter Chloe. With the opening chapter getting straight into the plot I was instantly intrigued. I just knew I couldn't wait to find out the truth surrounding the tragic circumstances and that I wouldn't be putting the book down anytime soon until I found out. I also enjoyed how the author showed the sudden change in emotions and attitudes between the sisters and their current lives in the following years and was keen to know what had caused it after such an intense introduction to them. I loved both Romy and Florence and how their differing fierce loyalties and characters affected the emotion of the story and their individual involvement in political events of pre-war France. I know they will both definitely stay with me for a long time and I certainly won't forget that unbelievably tense ending that had me on the edge of my seat. I don't have a sister myself but I was able to understand the depth of love and protection the sisters had for each other through the author's excellent portrayal of the twins' emotions. I'd be more that happy to read future books by this talented author having adored this one and I'd easily recommend "The Betrayal" to readers of pre-war historical fiction for which this is an excellent example. 5 stars
