The streets of Paris hide a dark past...September, 1937. Kitty Travers enrols at the Conservatoire on the banks of the Seine to pursue her dream of becoming a concert pianist. But then 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...A compelling story of war, secrets, family and enduring love.

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)
