After recovering from grave wounds suffered in The Great War, Bogey Lambert, a young cowboy from Colorado, makes his way to 1920s Paris, where he encounters the beautiful painter, Chrysis Jungbluth. Precocious, passionate, talented, this free spirit rebels against a society and an art world in which men have all the privilege, and women none. By day, a serious student at the prestigious l'École des Beaux-arts, at night Chrysis loses herself to the sensual pleasures of the Montparnasse nightlife, where all seems permissible. There, she and the American cowboy will live the love of a lifetime.

From the Author:

THE MEMORY OF LOVE is based on many actual historical figures and events, but it is a very different kind of book than my previous novels ONE THOUSAND WHITE WOMEN and THE WILD GIRL. Set mostly in France during and after WWI, it tells the tale of a passionate love affair between a young American cowboy from Colorado, who enlists in the French Foreign Legion to fight against the Germans, and a young French painter named Chrysis Jungbluth. The heart of the story takes place during Les Années Folles, "The Crazy Years" of Paris in the 1920s. THE MEMORY OF LOVE  is a very personal novel to me, as revealed in the foreword, and in many ways is my new favorite of all my books. I hope you will enjoy it.

About the Author:

Jim Fergus was born in Chicago of a French mother and an American father. He attended high school in Massachusetts and graduated as an English major from Colorado College. He has traveled extensively and lived over the years in Colorado, Florida, the French West Indies, Idaho, France, and Arizona. For ten years he worked as a teaching tennis pro in Colorado and Florida, and in 1980 moved to the tiny town of Rand, Colorado (pop. 13), to begin his career as a full-time freelance writer. During the next two decades Fergus published hundreds of articles, essays, interviews and profiles in a wide variety of regional and national magazines and newspapers. His first book, a travel/sporting memoir titled, A Hunter's Road, was published by Henry Holt in 1992.

Fergus's first novel, One Thousand White Women: The Journals of May Dodd was published by St. Martin's Press in 1998. The novel won the 1999 Fiction of the Year Award from the Mountains & Plains Booksellers Association, and has since sold over 700,000 copies in the United States. The French translation - Mille Femmes Blanches - won the "Best First Foreign Novel" award, and has sold over 400,000 copies in that country.
    
In 1999, St. Martin's Press published a collection of Fergus's outdoor articles and essays, titled The Sporting Road, and in the spring of 2005, Hyperion Press published his second novel, The Wild Girl: The Notebooks of Ned Giles, an historical adventure tale set in the Sierra Madre Mountains of Mexico in the 1930s.

In 2011, Fergus published a family historical fiction in France entitled Marie-Blanche. The English edition of Marie-Blanche will be published in the United States in 2014.

In the spring of 2013, Fergus published another novel in France, Chrysis : Portrait de l'Amour, a love story set in 1920's Paris. Chrysis has just been published in America with the title The Memory of Love.
                              
Jim Fergus divides his time between southern Arizona, northern Colorado, and France.
