The Paris Model by Alexandra Joel – UK book publication

July 20, 2023 @ 9:00 am - August 20, 2023 @ 5:00 pm

Based on a true story, The Paris Model by Alexandra Joel – former editor of Harper’s Bazaar – is a tale of glamour, family secrets and heartbreak that takes you from the Australian outback to the exclusive salons of Paris.

Becoming a best-seller when it was published in Australia in 2020, it’s now coming to the UK – hitting the shelves on 20 July 2023!

A stunning novel of love, betrayal and family secrets for all fans of Fiona McIntosh and Natasha Lester…. After a devastating discovery, Grace Woods leaves her vast Australian sheep station and travels to tumultuous post-war Paris in order to find her true identity.

While working as a glamorous mannequin for Christian Dior, the world’s newly acclaimed emperor of fashion, Grace mixes with counts and princesses, authors and artists, diplomats and politicians.

But when Grace falls for handsome Philippe Boyer she doesn’t know that he is leading a double life, nor that his past might inflict devastating consequences upon her. As she is drawn into Philippe’s secret world of international espionage, Grace discovers both the shattering truth of her origins – and that her life is in peril.

Author Alexandra Joel says: “I adored writing this book, which takes you from the sweeping plains of the Australian countryside to the sumptuous post-war couture house of Christian Dior. Inspired by an incredible, true story, it is a tale filled with beauty and heart-wrenching romance, family secrets … and espionage. The magnificent, brave and clever fashion mannequin, Grace Woods, is one of my favourite heroines. I hope you will love her as much as I do!”
