Description
When her chronically unemployed husband runs off to start a crocodile farm in Kenya with his mistress, Joséphine Cortès is left in an unhappy state of affairs, in this wildly popular tale from leading French novelist Katherine Pancol. The mother of two girls (confident, beautiful Hortense and shy, babyish Zoé), Joséphine tries to maintain a stable family life while making a meager salary as a medieval history scholar. Her charismatic sister Iris seems to have it all—gorgeous looks, a wealthy husband, and a très chic Paris address—but dreams of bringing meaning back into her life. When Iris charms a famous publisher into offering her a lucrative deal for a 12th-century romance, she offers her sister a deal of her own: Joséphine will write the novel and pocket the proceeds, but the book will be published under Iris's name. All is well—that is, until the book becomes the literary sensation of the season. All of us who loved Le Divorce and The Elegance of the Hedgehog have fallen for this sly, unmistakably French bonbon.

"Lucky you! You're about to succumb to France's most irresistible writer. At the end of this delicious, tender, funny, heartwarming novel, you'll feel as if Iris and Joséphine are part of your family."—Tatiana de Rosnay
