The Paris Library is a beautiful novel based on the true World War II story of heroic librarians at the American Library in Paris. It centers around two main characters in two timelines: a young French librarian in Paris beginning in 1939, and a precocious teenager in Montana in 1983. Sprinkled with French words and definitions, memorable people and places, friendships, courtships, laughter and tears, The Paris Library is everything I’d hoped it would be. It’s about Love and loss, and the connections that last in our memories long after those people are gone. It’s a wonderful set of stories, connected by happenstance, based in history and crafted in such a fantastic way. Absolutely adored it!
