A week in Paris by Rachel Hore due for publication October 2014
A slow burning but sure book that hooks you into finding out what happened next to the characters. Based on the type of events that really happened during the second world war, the story of the child and her parents and Paris really keep you waiting to hear the next part of the story.
I liked the idea of the music link-ups and really felt so sorry for all the trouble that the child went through and was astonished how balanced she ended up being, especially hearing about her ‘escapades’ during her escape from Paris and journey home to the UK.
Without giving the story away, there are two or more gentle love stories interwoven through time and Paris with the reality of life in the second world war told in a compassionate but accurate manner – no frills but truth.
