An American in Paris by Siobhan Curham Book Summary

Walking through Montmartre that morning was like the eerie calm right before a storm. The roads were deserted. We carried on, arm in arm, and then finally, we saw them. Columns and columns of soldiers, spreading through the streets like a toxic grey vapour. ‘You must write about this,’ he whispered to me. ‘You must write about the day freedom left Paris.’

1937: Florence has dreamed her whole life of coming to Paris. She arrives on a sweltering summer day and, lost on the steep streets of Montmartre, asks for directions from Otto, a young artist with paint-spattered clothes and the most beautiful smile she has ever seen.

Otto becomes her guide to Paris, taking her to visit paintings in the Louvre and bookshops by the Seine. And when Otto returns home to finish his studies, they vow to reunite on the same spot they met, one year to the day.

Still dreaming of their parting kiss, Florence starts writing for an American newspaper and throws herself into becoming truly Parisian. All too soon, heady days of parties and champagne are replaced by rumours of war. When Otto finally returns to her, it is as an exile, fleeing Nazi persecution.

Soon, not even Paris is safe. Florence’s articles now document life under occupation and hide coded messages from the Resistance. But with the man she loves in terrible danger, her words feel hollow and powerless. If Florence risks everything by accepting a dangerous mission, can she rescue their dreams from that sunny day before the war?

A sweeping wartime story that will capture your heart and never let it go. Fans of The Alice Network, The Lost Girls of Paris and My Name is Eva will be absolutely gripped from the very first page.

An American in Paris (Siobhan Curham) Book Reviews

Wonderful WW2 Story!What happens if we were to mix Emily in Paris, The Nightingale and Anne of Green Gables? Well, we would have a wonderful and entertaining historical fiction novel that is very enjoyable! The author was able to pull in this book the right mix to keep you entertained and caught in the pages of this book since the beginning. This book narrates the romantic and resilient story of Florence, an American in Paris during World War II, and also gives us a refreshing parallel story of Sage, an Instagram London influencer during 2018. I would have loved more mystery around the connection between the two main characters however the way we are presented with their stories, dreams and challenges is beautiful and we soon come to know that they have a lot more in common than we would think. In this book we also discover other interesting characters: Otto, a Jewish Austrian artist, a german police, Klaus, who reminded me a lot of Captain Beck from The Nightingale, Sam, an Arkansas farmer and Hunter a war veteran. For the lovers of The Lost Girls of Paris this is a wonderful opportunity to dive deeper into the lives of the brave women of the war, in a story that is hopeful, moving and very easy to read! Thank you NetGalley and Siobhan Curham for the copy of this book!.Score: 4/5
