I absolutely love historical fiction and read a lot of it; I love to learn history this way. I also enjoy reading science fiction, fantasy, horror, thriller and non-fiction science.
During World War I on a tiny island in the Seine sits The Little Palace, a restaurant run by master chef and cheese maker, Narcisse. Narcisse happens to be a cat who believes in equality and service for all. The stress of the war has allowed for animals and humans to communicate in ways unknown before. With the help of a very special group of animals, Narcisse has made The Little Palace an oasis for good food, company and a refuge for artists. In the cafe animals and humans work side by side; however, one of the servers at The Little Palace believes that animals and humans should not be equal. The server hatches a plan that damages the reputation of The Little Palace. At the same time Narcisse gets word that her father has been injured in the war.
