Once again Rutherford delivers. Captivating story that brings Paris alive for all readers. Different style this time as he bounces through history back and forth but pulls it all together seamlessly to create an enchanting and informative understanding of Paris. Up there with his other books!
There are too many characters and plot lines recommend this as an audio book. I'm positive I would have enjoyed it much more if I had read it in book format.
Audio version is always better than the printed version. It allows you to do other things while "reading" the book.
The story is very slow at some points, and then can get quite confusing as to how the characters connect. While I am a fan of the author, Edward Rutherfurd, this is not his best work. Having said that, it is a good read and the story was enjoyable.
Jean Gilpin does a wonderful job with all of the characters. She is a great reader and brings life to the story.

Check out Rutherfurd's other books first. This one is good, but not on the top of my list of favorites for his work.

I really enjoyed this book. There were a few places where it was a little too "historical" and not enough novel, but that's just me. I would highly recommend it.
Anyone who has visited " The City of Lights" and loves her like I do must read this delightfully novel. It's takes you in a journey of romance, wars, and well fought victories.
I'm a self-employed woman who enjoys historical fiction, mysteries and thrillers, political and law fiction, and self-development. I enjoy an intellectual challenge. I'm married for 25 years and have a daughter in college.
Love Rutherford's method of taking his readers back in time. Much earlier history than most historical fiction, fascinating facts I'd never heard before about history I thought I'd known.
