    Judith Krantz gave meaning to our lives when the s and values of society were rapidly changing and we needed new role models for our young selves I know, in retrospect, we should have beencautious But I simply loved all her books at the time No rating or review unless I reread it.

    If I was less stubborn, I never would have finished this For that matter, if I was less stubborn, I never would have read it in the first place My parents gave me this one they picked it up at a lawn sale They probably paid about 50 cents for it, and in my opinion, they probably overpaid The concept was strong, but the execution was not I did not like the characters I did not believe the emotions they supposedly experienced I finished only out of a sense of obligation and the tiniest bit If I was less stubborn, I never would have finished this For that matter, if I was less stubborn, I never would have read it in the first place My parents gave me this one they picked it up at a lawn sale They probably paid about 50 cents for it, and in my opinion, they probably overpaid The concept was strong, but the execution was not I did not like the characters I did not believe the emotions they supposedly experienced I finished only out of a sense of obligation and the tiniest bit of curiosity over what would happen Curiosity satisfied, now I can say that I am very happy to be putting this book behind me

    I disliked the main characters but really liked a lot of the side characters the men they loved and lost I had a problem with their morals and the fact that these women did things with disregard for who they hurt in the name of love which was mostly misplaced and unwarranted The ending is satisfying with most folks getting their just due I kept thinking I d like to pass it along to my mom and then there would be some random kinky sex scene out of nowhere so I think I ll skip it and kick I disliked the main characters but really liked a lot of the side characters the men they loved and lost I had a problem with their morals and the fact that these women did things with disregard for who they hurt in the name of love which was mostly misplaced and unwarranted The ending is satisfying with most folks getting their just due I kept thinking I d like to pass it along to my mom and then there would be some random kinky sex scene out of nowhere so I think I ll skip it and kick it back to the thrift store from whence it came A solid escape vacation book

    A fun beach read, but some of Krantz s other books are better.Till We Meet Again follows the story of Eve, who runs away from home in pre WWI France to live with a singer and then becomes an evensuccessful singer herself, and her daughters Delphine, an actress, and Freddie, a pilot The central notion is that all three women are Daring The book makes a pretty good case that Eve and Freddy are daring in their own ways, but I m not so sure about Delphine She s kind of a nitwit who drifts A fun beach read, but some of Krantz s other books are better.Till We Meet Again follows the story of Eve, who runs away from home in pre WWI France to live with a singer and then becomes an evensuccessful singer herself, and her daughters Delphine, an actress, and Freddie, a pilot The central notion is that all three women are Daring The book makes a pretty good case that Eve and Freddy are daring in their own ways, but I m not so sure about Delphine She s kind of a nitwit who drifts into acting in the French film industry and becomes incredibly successful because 1 she s extremely beautiful and 2 apparently has an orgasm whenever she s being filmed which conveys an elemental sexuality to audiences She falls in love with a Jewish film director and they drift along in blissful love, oblivious to the rise of Nazism, until the outbreak of war and her lover gets called up to fight in the army, and then is taken prisoner in Germany Delphine daringly rides out the war in Paris, worrying about her lover whose name I can t recall , continuing to act in films, but declining to actually collaborate with the Nazis On the one hand, it s annoying that there s no real reason they didn t leave France Delphine was born in America and is an American citizen, so they could have gotten married and fled together and gone to work in Hollywood like so many European film people did On the other hand, portraying life in Occupied France and the pressures to collaborate was interesting, but didn t get developed very far.Freddie s story isfun She becomes a stunt pilot and then a pilot in England during the war Women pilots did not participate in combat, but performed auxiliary roles moving planes around, etc I would have enjoyed an entire book on that storyline.Anyway, it s mostly a fun book I enjoyed all the WWII parts The main drawback is that by jumping around so many different locations and storylines, it skims the surface of tantalizing stories of which I would have enjoyeddevelopment

    The book focuses on Eve, Freddy and Delphine s journey through a rough time period where the consequences of being an independent and headstrong female with no regard to who they harm I found the stories of Eve and Freddy to be muchinteresting than Delphine Delphine seems to be the cliched beautiful actress who is successful and super oblivious to what is happening around her like the Nazi occupation of France until her beloved is taken away because of his Jewish background.Eve caused The book focuses on Eve, Freddy and Delphine s journey through a rough time period where the consequences of being an independent and headstrong female with no regard to who they harm I found the stories of Eve and Freddy to be muchinteresting than Delphine Delphine seems to be the cliched beautiful actress who is successful and super oblivious to what is happening around her like the Nazi occupation of France until her beloved is taken away because of his Jewish background.Eve caused quite a scandal running away to live with a singer before becoming a successful singer, only to turn around and fall in love with someone from an aristocratic background, and that also causes a scandal She fought hard to be recognized as someone worthy for years, she has the drive and determination to get it done.Freddy has always wanted to be a pilot as a young child and she daringly well stubbornly took to it When she become a pilot she did so many interesting and couragous things, like performing the airplane stunts in Hollywood movies, playing an active part in WWII, taking often times unnecessary risks, falling in love and finding love again Bruno Paul s kid by his deceased first wife was totally aristocratic through and through, having mostly been raised by his maternal grandparents who blame Paul for their daughter s death and Eve for her scandalous background During the war, Bruno did lots of despicable things, especially to other people like those who helped run the family estates view spoiler I am so glad he finally got what was coming to him even though it took some years for justice to be served A pity he didn t suffer a bad ending before he did all those money scheming and backstabbing actions hide spoiler It was an interesting read that passes the time
