An aristocratic young woman leaves the sheltered world of
London to find adventure, passion, and independence in 1920s
Paris in this mesmerizing story from the USA Today
and internationally bestselling author of Somewhere in
France and After the War is
Recovering from a broken
wartime engagement and a serious illness that left her near
death, Lady Helena Montagu-Douglas-Parr vows that for once
she will live life on her own terms. Breaking free from the
stifling social constraints of the aristocratic society in
which she was raised, she travels to France to stay with her
free spirited aunt. For one year, she will simply be Miss
Parr. She will explore the picturesque streets of Paris,
meet people who know nothing of her pastâ€”and pursue her
dream of becoming an artist.
A few years after the
Great Warâ€™s end, the City of Light is a bohemian paradise
teeming with actors, painters, writers, and a lively coterie
of American expatriates who welcome Helena into their
romantic and exciting circle. Among them is Sam Howard, an
irascible and infuriatingly honest correspondent for the
Chicago Tribune. Dangerously attractive and deeply
scarred by the horror and carnage of the war, Sam is unlike
any man she has ever encountered. He calls her Ellie, sees
her as no one has before, and offers her a glimpse of a
future that is both irresistible and impossible.
Paris rises phoenix-like from the ashes of the Great War, so
too does Helena. Though sheâ€™s shed her old self, sheâ€™s still
uncertain of what she will become and where she belongs. But
is she strong enough to completely let go of the past and
follow her heart, no matter where it leads
Artfully capturing the Lost Generation and their
enchanting city, Moonlight Over Paris is the
spellbinding story of one young womanâ€™s journey to find
herself, and claim the lifeâ€”and loveâ€”she truly wants.
