Welcome to the Official Website for Edward Rutherfurd

The paperback edition of Paris has now 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, it's quieter during August when most Parisians are on vacation.  But 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?
Glorious Bastard : William the Conqueror was the illegitimate son of the Duke of Normandy by the daughter of a tanner in the Norman town of Falaise. The tanning of leather was renowned for being a smelly business. One year, when William besieged Falaise, the citizens taunted him by hanging leather skins from the walls. Bad move. He killed them all. The author is proud to be one of the millions of descendants of William - and of the tanner, of course!
