A Week in Paris by Rachel Hore
  

Sarah Broadhurst's view...

A dual-time tale set during World War II and 1961 when our heroine takes a job as a violinist in Paris and researches into her childhood when both her parents were there during the occupation. Strange memories float into her consciousness and then we, the reader, get the World War II story. It is thrilling and totally immersing as this very competent author takes us through a dramatic and meaty plot in her engrossing manner. She is very good.

If you like Rachel Hore you might also like to read books by Jojo Moyes, Adele Geras and Penny Vincenzi.

Synopsis

A Week in Paris by Rachel Hore

A compelling story of war, secrets, family and history that will draw you into the heart of Paris and its troubled past. Paris, 1937. Kitty Travers enrols at the Conservatoire on the banks of the Seine to pursue her dream of becoming a concert pianist. Soon she is swept off her feet by a handsome American doctor and starts a new life as a married woman. But what was a place of love and peace quickly becomes a prison after war breaks out and the city of light falls into shadow. Nearly twenty-five years later, Fay Knox, a talented young violinist, visits Paris on tour with her orchestra. She barely knows the city, so why does it feel so familiar? Soon touches of memory become something stronger, and she realises her connection with these streets runs deeper than she ever expected. As Fay traces the past, with only an address in an old rucksack to help her, she discovers dark secrets hidden years ago, secrets that cause her to question who she is and where she belongs...
