    Inspired by the haunting, passionate story of the city of lights, this epic novel weaves a gripping tale of four families across the centuries: from the lies that spawn the noble line of de Cygne to the revolutionary Le Sourds who seek their destruction; from the Blanchards whose bourgeois respectability offers scant protection against scandal to the hard-working Gascons and their soaring ambitions.

    Joe says: "Centuries of beautiful, delectable snobbery"
    "Paris - just amazing"

    Story
    What did you love best about Paris?

    How the fictional characters were woven into the factual account of some of the history of the city


    What other book might you compare Paris to and why?

    Any of Edward Rutherfurd's books


    What does Jane Wymark and Jonathan Keeble bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    A French influence


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    Far too long to read in one sitting but always looked forward to the next sitting


    Any additional comments?

    Made me look for factual reference to events around which the story is woven. Learnt a lot.
