The City of Light hides a dark past...

When talented young violinist Fay Knox arrives in Paris from England, the city feels familiar to her. But not because Fay has visited Paris before. Back home, she finds an old canvas bag with a mysterious luggage tag hidden in her mother's old trunk, and soon starts to realize her connection with the streets of Paris runs deeper than she ever imagined. As Fay traces the past, she is taken back to 1937 Paris - and the eve of a war that changed her mother's life forever. When she discovers a dark secret buried years ago, Fay begins to question who she really is and where she belongs.

Filled with romance, family secrets, and the allure of Paris, Rachel Hore's A Week in Paris is the compelling story of two women living in two very different worlds who share far more than a passion for music.

About the Author:

RACHEL HORE is the bestselling author of several novels, including A Week in Paris.

Taylor, and they have three sons.

Review:

"In A Week in Paris, Rachel Hore takes us on an emotional whirlwind, visiting a deep well of family secrets and sacrifice and asking: how far do parents go to protect their child during wartime? From evoking the texture of everyday life in occupied Paris during World War II, to capturing the vintage style of the City of Light in the early sixties, this is an absorbing tale of a young woman's discovery of the truth about her past. A Week in Paris takes the reader on a haunting journey that resonates with mystery and romance." ―Juliet Blackwell, New York Times bestselling author of The Paris Key

"Beautifully written, and brimming with mystery and romance, A Week in Paris is another wonderful, memorable read from Rachel Hore." -Isabel Wolff, internationally bestselling author of Shadows Over Paradiseand A Vintage Affair

"By turns gripping and mysterious, emotional and lyrical, A Week in Paris is a wonderful read." -Heather Webb, author of Rodin's Lover

“Hore, author of A Place of Secrets (2012), again proves her talent for combining history and generational family drama in parallel stories, adding hints of romance and psychic ability to form an intensely compelling story.... Reminiscent of Irène Némirovsky’s Suite Française (2006) for its immersive historical perspective, and Belinda Alexandra’s Golden Earrings (2015) for the emotional richness and parallel mother-daughter story lines.” Booklist

“Hore’s story of love, loss, and resilience is a page-turner full of romance and period detail. Recommended for historical fiction collections.” Library Journal

"The Paris of both ages is beautifully drawn and the women's stories are skillfully interwoven, resulting in a richly emotional story, suspenseful and romantic, but unflinching in its portrayal of the dreadful reality and legacy of war." -Sunday Mirror (UK)

"A riveting page-turner. Rachel Hore’s descriptions of Paris are so true to life." –Historical Novel Society

"An elegiac tale of wartime love and secrets." -Telegraph (UK)
