The war is over, but the past is never past ... Paris, 1944. Charlotte Foret is working in a tiny bookstore in Nazi-occupied Paris struggling to stay alive and keep her baby Vivi safe as the world around them is being torn apart.

Every day they live through is a miracle until Vivi becomes gravely ill. In desperation, Charlotte accepts help from an unlikely saviour - and her life is changed forever. Charlotte is no victim - she is a survivor. But the truth of what happened in Paris is something she can never share with anyone, including her daughter.

But can she ever really leave Paris behind - and survive the next chapter of her life? Seamlessly interweaving Charlotte's past in wartime Paris and her present in the 1950s world of New York publishing, A Bookshop in Paris is a heartbreakingly moving and unforgettable story of resilience, love - and impossible choices. 'Completely compelling. I tore through it. This novel pivots on how we manage to survive surviving ...

Charlotte's visceral story will stay with me.' Naomi Wood, author of Mrs Hemingway 'Masterful, magnificent.

A passionate story of survival. This story will stay with me for a long time'Heather Morris, bestselling author of The Tattooist of Auschwitz Published in the US and Australia as Paris Never Leaves You
