Summary, etc.:
"Living through WWII working in a Paris bookstore with her young daughter, Vivi, and fighting for her life, Charlotte is no victim, she is a survivor. But can she survive the next chapter of her life? Alternating between wartime Paris and 1950s New York publishing, Paris Never Leaves You is an extraordinary story of resilience, love, and impossible choices, exploring how survival never comes without a cost. The war is over, but the past is never past."-- Provided by publisher.
During the war the "city of lights" was darkened by blackouts, curfews, and constant fear. Charlotte was a survivor, working in a Paris bookstore and raising her young daughter, Vivi. Now in the 1950s, in the publishing world of Manhattan, giddy with postwar abundance and optimism, Charlotte learns that survival never comes without a cost-- and the past is never past. -- adapted from jacket
