This is a bounce around story from 1940 Paris to current day. Interesting couples with Great Grandmother and mother to daughter into a story of child rearing and and an inheritance. Secrets of all three are revealed and shared in the dusty Paris apartment that was unused for 60 years. Time is stopped and life then continues in reuniting ways.
Having read an Apt in Paris, I learned that the “forgotten” apartment was a story written several times. Using this same premise , Lost in a paris is the story of an estranged mother and daughter who find themselves owning an apt in Paris vacated during WW2. This book is the story of a mother and daughter reconciling while learning the true history of their inheritance. The book was all right but not as enjoyable as the first book I read about this apt. This time the story is about a lost manuscript,, An Apt in Paris- lost art. The back story was interesting, the writing of the present day story was a bit childish and maybe boring for me as I knew the outcome. However, where the book failed for me was the simplistic story telling of the characters and friends in today’s world
The events of this novel kept me turning the pages. If one allowed themselves to imagine inheriting an untouched apartment in Paris, and diaries full of Hemingway and Fitzgerald, with a manuscript left behind by an equal author, and a French business start up that goes off without a hitch - this is the book that occurred. Improbable and engaging.
A light, easy to read Paris romance. I picked the book because of other reviews, and because I love all things Paris, traveling, and history. The story shifts between 1920s Paris and the present, which I liked a lot. A fun fast read.
Great book. Love all the places in Paris. Story compelling. Kept my interest all the way through. Since my grandparents are German, the book takes you to the fears and situations of being in a war and in love. Wanted it to go on .
What a wonderful story about discovering family. Meticulously researched, I learned so much about Paris during the 20’s and 30’s, and honestly, it feels like I’ve been there now. What a gift! Highly, highly recommend.
This book, Lost in Paris, is historical fiction..since I love Paris I really enjoyed this book so much...it’s very intriguing jumping back and forth between present day and 40 years ago. The book also delves into mother daughter relationships.....
