The paperback edition of Paris has been published in the UK, Ireland, Australia, New Zealand, South Africa, Europe (English Language) and other 'open market' territories. If you are thinking of a visit to Paris,  I personally love September and October.

Paris : City of love. City of revolution.  This thrilling and romantic story opens in La Belle Époque, the golden, hedonistic age of peace and joie de vivre. Moving back and forth in time across centuries, the story unfolds through intimate and vivid tales of self-discovery, divided loyalty, passion, and long-kept secrets both fictional and true, set against the backdrop of the city - from the summit of Montmartre to the gothic towers of Notre Dame to the grand boulevards of Saint-Germain, from the medieval world of saints and scholars to the modern French ideals of liberté, égalité, fraternitéRead More and Purchase



Did You Know?
The French National Anthem – La Marseillaise – was originally called the Song of The Army of The Rhine and was not written in Marseille. The writer, Rouget-de-L’Isle was himself a royalist and refused to take the oath of allegiance to the new republican constitution. He was imprisoned and barely escaped the guillotine before being released in 1794 during the Thermidorian Reaction.
