An unforgettable story of love, courage and impossible choices, from wartime Paris to 1950s New York. The war is over, but the past is never past ... Paris 1944. Charlotte is working in a tiny Paris bookstore in Nazi-occupied Paris with her baby daughter, Vivi, and fighting for h...er life. Charlotte is no victim - she is a survivor. But can she survive the next chapter of her life? Seamlessly interweaving Charlotte's story between wartime Paris and the 1950s world of New York publishing, Paris Never Leaves You is an unforgettable story of resilience, love - and impossible choices. 'Masterful, magnificent. A passionate story of survival. This story will stay with me for a long time.' Heather Morris, author of The Tattooist of Auschwitz and Cilka's Journey 'This beautiful novel tells the bittersweet story of a young mother's strength and survival during WWII, effortlessly capturing the terror, immediacy, and inextinguishable human spirit.' Noelle Salazar, author of The Flight Girls 'An exquisite novel that gives us what we're hungry for: an intelligent, complex female character who challenges our ideas of right and wrong, morality and immorality. Feldman achieves all of this with admirable precision and wit; she takes aim and does not miss.' Elizabeth J Church, author of All the Beautiful Girls '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, New York Times bestselling author of Mrs Hemingway 'With more twists and turns than the back streets of Paris, the story is as propulsively readable as a spy novel, and as rich and psychologically rewarding as only the finest literature can be.' Liza Gyllenhaal, author of Bleeding Heart 'A powerful exploration of some of the most profound questions about love and loyalty resonates strongly today: What would you do to save your child? What is morality in wartime? How do we make peace with the past?' Christina Lynch, author of The Italian Party 'A vivid and precise portrait of Paris under German occupation but it is also an exploration of the courage and cowardice of those bitter years, as well as offering a slyly persuasive love story ... also giving us a wise and troubling lesson about the great moral crisis of the last century.' Richard Snow, author of Iron Dawn 'A fluid, rich, and nuanced novel, expertly crafted, guaranteed to follow you around long after you've turned the last page. I gulped it down.' Stacy Schiff, author of Cleopatra, Vera, The Witches, and A Great Improvisation 'A thrilling achievement ... I was thoroughly drawn into a deep, rich, vivid world of engrossing characters and emotional and moral crises ... a great piece of writing in every way.' Forbes
