Publisher's Summary

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 25 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.


What the Critics Say

"A tour de force. Rachel's Paris is rich, romantic, exotic and mysterious." (Judy Finnigan)
"The Paris of both ages is beautifully drawn and the women's stories are skilfully interwoven, resulting in a richly emotional story, suspenseful and romantic." (Deirdre O’Brien, Sunday Mirror)

Good book; poorly read

Any additional comments?

This is a gripping story but the narrarion is poor. Why choose a reder for a book containing a lot of French, who clearly does not know the language? Even her English pronunciation is poor and this is so annoying that it spoilt my enjoyment of the book.

Fantastic book

This was such a treat. It was written beautifully and the narrator was first class with her voice full of clarity and excellent different voices.
I didn't want this to end. I also learnt lots about how Parisians suffered in the war. Won't say too much and ruin it for others.
I really recommend this book to everyone, a thoroughly enjoyable listen from start to finish.
