Content descriptions

Summary, etc.: "The City of Light hides a dark past ... When talented young violinist Fay Knox arrives in Paris from England, the city feels familiar to her. But not because Fay has visited Paris before. Back home, she finds an old canvas bag with a mysterious luggage tag hidden in her mother's old trunk, and soon starts to realize her connection with the streets of Paris runs deeper than she ever imagined. As Fay traces the past, she is taken back to 1937 Paris - and the eve of a war that changed her mother's life forever. When she discovers a dark secret buried years ago, Fay begins to question who she really is and where she belongs. Filled with romance, family secrets, and the allure of Paris, A Week in Paris is the compelling story of two women living in two very different worlds who share far more than a passion for music"-- Provided by publisher.

    Hore, author of A Place of Secrets (2012), again proves her talent for combining history and generational family drama in parallel stories, adding hints of romance and psychic ability to form an intensely compelling story. Readers spend a week in 1960s Paris with Fay, a talented young violinist who falls for a journalist and discovers the secrets her depressed mother withheld from her—secrets about her father's death in occupied Paris and how she and her mother escaped. Fay's prestigious musical career plays second fiddle to her search for the truth about her parents as she tracks down people they knew and what happened to them. Suspenseful and absorbing, the story dramatizes the gamut of French experiences during WWII: rationing and near-starvation, fear of an invading German army that sometimes strafed innocent citizens for sport, the incursion of refugees, and how prison camps were used to harass and brutalize British and American civilians, along with Jews. Reminiscent of Irène Némirovsky's Suite Française (2006)for its immersive historical perspective, and Belinda Alexandra's Golden Earrings (2015) for the emotional richness and parallel mother-daughter story lines.
