This novel tells a story about one of history’s most enigmatic woman, known as Mata Hari. A penniless woman who arrived in Paris and within a few months, she became the most famous dancer in the city. During the time of war, Mata Hari was arrested and accused of espionage and later executed. The book sets the right tone at the beginning, whereby the first chapter is Mata Hari’s execution, making it nearly impossible to put the book down.

Quotes:
“Flowers teach us that nothing is permanent: not their beauty, not even the fact that they will inevitably wilt, because they will still give new seeds. Remember this when you feel joy, pain, or sadness. Everything passes, grows old, dies, and is reborn.”

“There’s no wind strong enough to make the boat change direction; it stays in the harbor, venturing only among still waters.”
“Know what you want and try to go beyond your own expectations.”
“Love is an act of faith and its face should always be covered in mystery.”
