Narrator Hope Newhouse's stage background and versatility are firmly on display in this very French debut novel. Margot Louve is the secret love child of a famous stage actress and a prominent French politician. Longing for her father's love and her mother's attention, she puts her family's deepest secrets in the wrong hands, learning in brutal fashion what can happen when "the cat's out of the bag." Newhouse moves smoothly between English and French, effectively portraying an aging Frenchman, a bohemian actress, and the young and confused Margot. The prose in the novel is mesmerizing, and its delivery perfection. A.C.P. © AudioFile 2020, Portland, Maine [Published: NOVEMBER 2020]
