Summary from Goodreads:

Living through WWII 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, 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.


It’s amazing the will that people have to survive. The things that people, especially women had to endure during WW2 and the time afterward is hard to swallow sometimes. This book really puts you in the shoes of those people as you watch them struggle and overcome the pain of such a brutal war.

Received an advance reader copy in exchange for a fair review.
