A Bookshop in Paris
Ellen Feldman (Author)
DescriptionThe war is over, but the past is never past ...
Paris, 1944. Charlotte Foret is working in a tiny bookstore in Nazi-occupied Paris struggling to stay alive and keep her baby Vivi safe as the world around them is being torn apart. Every day they live through is a miracle until Vivi becomes gravely ill. In desperation, Charlotte accepts help from an unlikely saviour - and her life is changed forever.
Charlotte is no victim - she is a survivor. But the truth of what happened in Paris is something she can never share with anyone, including her daughter. But can she ever really leave Paris behind - and survive the next chapter of her life?
Seamlessly interweaving Charlotte's past in wartime Paris and her present in the 1950s world of New York publishing, A Bookshop in Paris is a heartbreakingly moving and unforgettable story of resilience, love - and impossible choices.
'Completely compelling. I tore through it. This novel pivots on how we manage to survive surviving ... Charlotte's visceral story will stay with me.' Naomi Wood, author of Mrs Hemingway
'Masterful, magnificent. A passionate story of survival. This story will stay with me for a long time'
Heather Morris, bestselling author of The Tattooist of Auschwitz
