Review

“A fresh take on World War II France that will appeal to bibliophiles everywhere. I fell in love with Odile and Lily, with their struggles and triumphs, from the very first page. Meticulously researched, The Paris Library is an irresistible, compelling read.”
— FIONA DAVIS, bestselling author of The Chelsea Girls

“Absolutely delightful from the first page to the last. I recommend this book to anyone who understands the magic of books, friendships, and love in the face of evil.”
— GENEVIEVE GRAHAM, #1 bestselling author of The Forgotten Home Child

“As a Parisian, an ardent bookworm, and a longtime fan of the American Library in Paris, I devoured The Paris Library in one hungry gulp. It is charming and moving, with a perfect balance between history and fiction.”
— TATIANA DE ROSNAY, bestselling author of Sarah’s Key

“A billet-doux to books and libraries.”
— Toronto Star

“The Paris Library is a refreshing novel that celebrates libraries as cradles of community, especially when we need them the most. It shows how literature can be a means of escape, a catalyst for human connection, and a moral center in grim times. A thoroughly enjoyable read, kind-hearted and brimming with delightful bookish allusions.”
— MATTHEW SULLIVAN, author of Midnight at the Bright Ideas Bookstore

“A vivid, enjoyable, based-on-a-true-story tale. In The Paris Library, the beloved library, its staff, and its subscribers come to life and remind us of both the horrors of World War II and the vital role books play in keeping us afloat in difficult times. Well-researched, stirring, and rich with detail, The Paris Library is an ode to the importance of libraries, books, and the human connections we find within both.”
— KRISTIN HARMELNew York Times bestselling author of The Book of Lost Names

“Second World War Resistance fighters? Check. Glamorous location? Check. Rooms filled with books? Check, check, and check. What’s not to love about a novel that melds all three into one incredibly satisfying read? This story centres on Odile, who works at the American Library in Paris in 1939 and, 50 years on, is living in Montana next to lonely teenager Lily. As the two become friends, Odile slowly reveals her secrets, including her acts of bravery—and betrayal—to the girl whose present day actions eerily mirror Odile’s past.”
— Canadian Living

“Opens the doors to a hidden world in Paris, one that’s both inspiring and like a precious secret you want to savour. It pulled me in with its delightful cast of bookworm characters and all their quirks and secrets. This is an engaging story of the magic of books, how they can offer hope, strength, and joy in the darkest hours.”
— ELLEN KEITH, bestselling author of The Dutch Wife

“A love letter to Paris, the power of books, and the beauty of intergenerational friendship.”
