Unfortunately those books are only available in Australia and New Zealand, and the UK. I haven't heard from my US publisher that they are likely to publish those books at this stage. Fingers crossed that they do some time in the future!(less)

There isn't really an order but you're right, I do like to let characters from other books make a cameo appearance in subsequent books. Technically The Paris Seamstress comes first, then The Paris Orphan and then The Paris Secret but it isn't really necessary to read them in order - it's more just a bit of fun to spot the character cameo if you've read the previous book. Glad you enjoyed The Paris Secret too! (less)

“She ran straight into Leo’s open arms, unable to stop the tears from falling, feeling at last defended, like a single musical note that had finally found the symphony to which it belonged.”
Natasha Lester, Her Mother's Secret

“When you awaken in the morning’s hush I am the swift uplifting rush Of quiet birds in circled flight. I am the soft stars that shine at night. Do not stand at my grave and cry; I am not there. I did not die.”
Natasha Lester, The Paris Seamstress

“she could make women feel stronger and bolder and more courageous, as they would need to be through these dark times.”
Natasha Lester, The Paris Seamstress

Topics Mentioning This Author

“E.L. Doctorow said once said that 'Writing a novel is like driving a car at night. You can see only as far as your headlights, but you can make the whole trip that way.' You don't have to see where you're going, you don't have to see your destination or everything you will pass along the way. You just have to see two or three feet ahead of you. This is right up there with the best advice on writing, or life, I have ever heard.”
Anne Lamott, Bird by Bird: Some Instructions on Writing and Life

“She ran straight into Leo’s open arms, unable to stop the tears from falling, feeling at last defended, like a single musical note that had finally found the symphony to which it belonged.”
