About the Book:
St. Martin’s Press, August 4, 2020
Living through World War II working in a Paris bookstore with her young daughter, Vivi, and fighting for her life, Charlotte is no victim, she is a survivor. But can she survive the next chapter of her life?
Alternating between wartime Paris and 1950s New York publishing, Ellen Feldman’s Paris Never Leaves You is an extraordinary story of resilience, love, and impossible choices, exploring how survival never comes without a cost.
The war is over, but the past is never past.
Miss W’s Review:
5 Stars from Miss W !
Paris Never Leaves You is an incredible historical fiction novel.
The story alternates timelines between wartime during WWII in Paris and 1950’s New York.
Charlotte makes it through the war and escapes Paris with her toddler daughter Vivi. Life is calm and good for Charlotte and VIvi. Vivi is now a teenager and has so many questions about who her father is and what happened in Paris during that time. Charlotte wishes to leave the past in the past including all the secrets she ran from.
The characters are complex, and well fleshed out. The story is extremely well written. I really liked the different timelines.
If you enjoy historical fiction, this is a must read!
Highly recommended !
