[ARC Review]: Mata Hari's Last Dance by Michelle Moran

Title: Mata Hari's Last Dance
Author: Michelle Moran
Genre: Historical Fiction
Release Date: July 19, 2016

I received this book from Touchstone, in exchange for an honest review.

Summary:  From the international bestselling author of Rebel Queen and Nefertiti comes a captivating novel about the infamous Mata Hari, exotic dancer, adored courtesan, and, possibly, relentless spy.

Paris, 1917. The notorious dancer Mata Hari sits in a cold cell awaiting freedom…or death. Alone and despondent, Mata Hari is as confused as the rest of the world about the charges she’s been arrested on: treason leading to the deaths of thousands of French soldiers.

As Mata Hari waits for her fate to be decided, she relays the story of her life to a reporter who is allowed to visit her in prison. Beginning with her carefree childhood, Mata Hari recounts her father’s cruel abandonment of her family as well her calamitous marriage to a military officer. Taken to the island of Java, Mata Hari refuses to be ruled by her abusive husband and instead learns to dance, paving the way to her stardom as Europe’s most infamous dancer.

Thoughts: Going into this I had heard of Mata Hari, but didn't know much except that she was a dancer and was executed for being a spy.  Ms. Moran spins a vibrant tale that spans the globe and the years of 1904-1917.  It was intriguing to learn more about Mata Hari the woman.  Mata Hari's Last Dance is a great read. It paints exciting picture of love, dancing and loneliness and heartbreak.

Score: 4 Stars
