Author: Ellen Feldman
Published: August 2020, St. Martin’s Griffin

Living through WWII
working in a Paris bookstore with her young daughter, Vivi, and fighting
for her life, Charlotte is no victim, she is a survivor. But can she
survive the next chapter of her life?

Alternating between wartime Paris and 1950s New York publishing, Paris
Never Leaves You is an extraordinary story of resilience, love, and
impossible choices, exploring how survival never comes without a cost.

The war is over, but the past is never past.

Praise for Paris Never Leaves You:

“A memorable, thought-provoking moral
conflict, and dialogue [that] crackles like a duel… Paris Never Leaves
You succeeds as a meaty moral tale.”
—Historical Novel Society

“Fans of Anthony Doerr’s All the Light We Cannot See and Kristin Hannah’s The Nightingale may want to pick this up.” —Booklist 

“Nothing is quite what it seems…
Wartime Paris is described in vivid, sometimes harrowing, detail… [An]
engrossing page-turner.” —
Kirkus Reviews

“The best works of historical fiction
have a way of illuminating the present, allowing readers to better
understand themselves through well-defined characters reflected in the
prism of time…. Feldman does this beautifully in a multi-layered, tender
story that explores the emotionally charged, often parallel terrains of
truth, deception, love and heartbreak.”
—Shelf Awareness

“A nuanced WWII story of love and
survival in Occupied Paris… With its appealing heroine and historically
detailed settings… a dangerous secret gives Feldman’s story a
gasp-worthy spin
.” —Publisher’s Weekly

“Things are seldom as they seem in this engrossing tale of identity, survival, loyalty, and love…Recommend with enthusiasm.” —Library Journal

“Ellen Feldman’s writing is riveting
in this beautiful novel that tells the bittersweet story of a young
mother’s strength and survival during WWII. From a tiny bookstore in
Nazi-occupied Paris to a post-war New York publishing house, Feldman
effortlessly captures the terror, immediacy, and inextinguishable human
—Noelle Salazar, author of The Flight Girls 

“Completely compelling. I tore through
it. This novel pivots on how we manage to survive surviving…
Charlotte’s visceral story will stay with me.”
—Naomi Wood, New York Times best-selling author of Mrs. Hemingway and The Hiding Game

“Feldman’s powerful exploration of
some of the most profound questions about love and loyalty resonates
strongly today: What would you do to save your child? What is morality
in wartime? How do we make peace with the past?”
—Christina Lynch, author of The Italian Party

“This is an exquisite novel – one that
gives us what we’re hungry for: an intelligent, complex female
character who challenges our ideas of right and wrong, morality and
immorality. We’re reminded, too, of the dangers of drawing easy, swift
conclusions. Feldman achieves all of this with wholly admirable
precision and wit; she takes aim and does not miss.”
—Elizabeth J. Church, author of The Atomic Weight of Love and All the Beautiful Girls

“A fluid, rich, and nuanced novel,
expertly crafted, guaranteed to follow you around long after you’ve
turned the last page. I gulped it down.”
—Stacy Schiff, author of Cleopatra, Vera, The Witches, and A Great Improvisation 

“Feldman’s characters—in the Paris
bookstore that harbors many secrets or the Manhattan publishing house
with its marvelous cast of misfits—are both terrifying and utterly
engaging. With more twists and turns than the back streets of Paris, the
story is as propulsively readable as a spy novel, and as rich and
psychologically rewarding as only the finest literature can be.”
—Liza Gyllenhaal, author of Local Knowledge and Bleeding Heart

“…a vivid and precise portrait of that
city under German occupation during the Second World War, but it is
also an exploration of the courage and cowardice of those bitter years,
as well as offering a slyly persuasive love story. The swift, engrossing
narrative conceals, in the best way, the fact that Feldman is also
giving us a wise and troubling lesson about the great moral crisis of
the last century.”
—Richard Snow, author of Iron Dawn

“A thrilling achievement…I was
thoroughly drawn into a deep, rich, vivid world of engrossing characters
and emotional and moral crises…a great piece of writing in every way.”
—Fred Allen, Leadership Editor, Forbes
