HUGE ANNOUNCEMENT for Authors, Readers and Reviewers!!!

My Beloved Enchanted by Josephine site will go back to its original purpose: My writing and researching of all that is historical- with Josephine as my muse.

With time, it seems that Enchanted By Josephine, slowly got eaten up SOLELY by Book Reviews and Giveaways - so I thought I had better create a new place for all my Book Loving Stuff (which includes my reviews, interviews and Giveaways), and let Enchanted by Josephine thrive with my writing and research focused mainly on historical women, as originally planned.

So now where will all my bookish musings get posted??


I wanted to create a place where historical fiction book lovers could come read all that's bookish...And more-so, I wanted it to be a place where we can learn even more about who's behind the book:  

The Author, the Reader, the Reviewer.

HF Book Muse- News will not only focus on all book-related news (upcoming releases, new events, books-into-movies, Giveaways...and of course Reviews!).  In addition, a large part of this site will be dedicated to Author news, Reader and Reviewer news, Interviews (Lists, lists, lists!)- plus interesting insights and posts for all who love history and historical fiction. 

With time I've discovered my passion for learning more about the people behind the books (all of us HF lovers!) and I particularly love interviews and guest posts. These are wonderful channels for authors and readers to get better acquainted- so there will be a strong tendency towards these:) I'm open to suggestions and would love for you to contact me if you're interested!

To read more and for more info please hop on over to my new site to read more: HF BOOK MUSE- NEWS

AS FOR THIS SITE- Please keep following for my historical research articles and fun tid-bits- I'll still be writing here!

BUT- I don't want to lose you all, so if you want to keep reading my interviews, book reviews and enter my Giveaways, please go to HF BOOK MUSE- NEWS-  I'd really appreciate that:))

To celebrate there will be a Smashing Opening Giveaway soon...so I hope you'll be there!

France Book Tours- Review and GIVEAWAY of THE MANY LIVES OF MISS K.!!

Today as part of France Book Tours

Read my Review of THE MANY LIVES OF MISS K.

And then enter the Giveaway!

My Review:

Miss K. stands for legendary icon and more, Catharina “Toto” Koopman.  Born in Indonesia in 1908- her father was Dutch and her mother was half Indonesian with Chinese ancestry.  And although at the time this was cause for much prejudice and segregation, Toto did not seem affected by this at all. In fact, she became to be the first- and very acclaimed bi-racial celebrity model.  Under the tutelage of Coco Chanel, Toto became famous in her own right, spearing ahead to become more than just a glamourous model.

Not only was Toto gorgeous and exotic, she was also very strong-minded with exceptional optimism even at the harshest of times in her life.  Her beauty and wits- not to mention her flaunting independence- made Toto notorious as a woman who made her mark in 20th century Europe.  She spoke several languages, was well-versed in the arts (a muse for one of the most important galleries from the 40’s to the 70’s that launched famous artists), was a fashion enigma, a spy for the resistance during World War II – and she survived the Holocaust!

This adventuress woman, whose quest for independence had no limits, lived an outrageously unconventional life- even her romances had no sexual boundaries or gender preference. Toto really was unique and outstanding in all that she lived- almost to the point of it sounding surreal were it not for the true historical accounting for it all.

The Many Lives of Miss K., by Jean-Noel Liaut is a fascinating read.  There is nothing missing in terms of accuracy and delicious recounting of the history itself.  And although at times it reads quite factually, the book is chock-full of very personal, insightful, brow-raising, shocking, and extremely interesting information, that I just could not put this down.  

The Many Lives of Miss K.:  A definite page-turner that unfolds the life of a spectacular individual whose life could not be more incredible if it were fiction!
