An aristocratic young woman leaves the sheltered world of London to find adventure, passion, and independence in 1920s Paris in this mesmerizing story from the USA Today and internationally bestselling author of Somewhere in France and After the War is Over.

Spring, 1924

Recovering from a broken wartime engagement and a serious illness that left her near death, Lady Helena Montagu-Douglas-Parr vows that for once she will live life on her own terms. Breaking free from the stifling social constraints of the aristocratic society in which she was raised, she travels to France to stay with her free spirited aunt. For one year, she will simply be Miss Parr. She will explore the picturesque streets of Paris, meet people who know nothing of her past—and pursue her dream of becoming an artist.

A few years after the Great War’s end, the City of Light is a bohemian paradise teeming with actors, painters, writers, and a lively coterie of American expatriates who welcome Helena into their romantic and exciting circle. Among them is Sam Howard, an irascible and infuriatingly honest correspondent for the Chicago Tribune. Dangerously attractive and deeply scarred by the horror and carnage of the war, Sam is unlike any man she has ever encountered. He calls her Ellie, sees her as no one has before, and offers her a glimpse of a future that is both irresistible and impossible.

As Paris rises phoenix-like from the ashes of the Great War, so too does Helena. Though she’s shed her old self, she’s still uncertain of what she will become and where she belongs. But is she strong enough to completely let go of the past and follow her heart, no matter where it leads her?

Artfully capturing the Lost Generation and their enchanting city, Moonlight Over Paris is the spellbinding story of one young woman’s journey to find herself, and claim the life—and love—she truly wants.

Review:

“Returns with mastery once more to the World War I era.... This is a moving and memorable book.” (Pam Jenoff, bestselling author of The Winter Guest)

“Meticulously researched and richly detailed, Moonlight Over Paris paints an enchanting picture... The elegance of Robson’s prose flows through every page, sweeping the reader from London’s aristocracy to the Parisian art scene and beyond... a heartwarming love story that left me aching for a journey back in time.” (Kristina McMorris, New York Times bestselling author of The Edge of Lost)

“The vibrant whirl of the Paris art community is the ideal setting for this novel of healing and growth. Robson’s lovely prose allows the reader to savor the atmosphere of the Lost Generation, as well as the personal struggles of her characters.” (RT Book Reviews)

“Robson is a master of evoking atmospheric detail that transports readers back in time and place. I loved every page!” (Renee Rosen, author of White Collar Girl)

“Robson gives the concept of self-discovery amid the enchanting streets of Paris a fresh spin in MOONLIGHT OVER PARIS. Delightful and romantic, readers will devour Robson’s latest work.” (Heather Webb, author of Rodin's Lover)

“Robson’s historical research is evident in her great attention to detail, adding realism to a magnetic novel that’s complete with actual historical figures. The blooming romance between Sam and Ellie is intensified by the magic of Paris in the 1920s, where new artists and musicians collaborated to create original masterpieces.” (Publishers Weekly)
