Reviews

"For anyone who has ever admired the Eiffel Tower, this fascinating tale of a woman ahead of her time will leave a mark on your heart, in much the same way that Claire Eiffel left her mark on the world." -- Kristin Harmel, New York Times bestselling author of The Paris Daughter

"The story of one of the most iconic landmarks in the world is entwined not only with its architects but with the families of those who built it. Its creation is due in large part to the efforts and support of Claire Eiffel, a young woman forced to grow up too soon but who rose to the challenge. MADEMOISELLE EIFFEL shines a glorious light on an unseen woman from history." -- Erika Robuck, National Bestselling Author of The Last Twelve Miles

"Aimie K. Runyan whips up a feast of a novel, full of the warmth and heart characters give each other during two despairing periods of French history. Recipes for boulangerie classics remind us of the power of simple ingredients, artfully assembled. Lisette and Micheline walk their own unique paths to happiness, fighting for their independence and finding loves that support their true selves. As delicious and satisfying as a perfect cup of chocolat chaud." -- Kerri Maher, international bestselling author of The Paris Bookseller, on A Bakery in Paris

"This captivating story is a tantalizing blend of history and culinary inspiration, weaving a poignant dual narrative that links two women to one Paris Bakery. From the pivotal moment of the Commune of Paris uprising to life in the aftermath of the world wars, Runyan provides a mouth-watering journey through French history with delicious baking recipes sprinkled throughout the narrative. This book is sure to satisfy your senses so don't miss out on this delicious read!" -- Stephanie Dray, New York Times bestselling author, on A Bakery in Paris

"Two remarkably strong women--one under siege during the War of 1870 and the other struggling in the aftermath of WWII--both find strength and hope within the walls of a tiny Parisian bakery. With meticulous attention to rich historical detail, heartfelt characters and a page-turning tale that's peppered with recipes, Aimie Runyan has the perfect ingredients for a most satisfying work of historical fiction." -- Renee Rosen, USA Today bestselling author of The Social Graces, on A Bakery in Paris

"The School for German Brides is a fascinating deep-dive into the German home front during World War II. Aimie K. Runyan deftly paints the details of Nazi-run Berlin through the eyes of two lovable heroines destined to cross paths at one of the Fuhrer's sinister Bride Schools: independent Hanna, fighting her engagement to a high-profile SS officer tooth and nail; and Tilde, a resourceful Jewish dressmaker struggling simply to survive. Moving, unsettling, unforgettable!" -- Kate Quinn, New York Times bestselling author of The Diamond Eye

"In The School for German Brides, Aimie Runyan has penned the thoughtful and original story of an SS officer's bride and a young Jewish mother, whose lives collide in unexpected ways in World War II Germany. This is a moving and memorable tale of sisterhood, strength and survival, which will resonate deeply with readers of historical fiction." -- Pam Jenoff, New York Times bestselling author of The Woman with the Blue Star
