A missing person, a grieving family, a curious clue: a
half-finished manuscript set in Paris
Once a week, I chase men who are not my husband. . . .
When eccentric novelist Robert Eady abruptly vanishes, he
leaves behind his wife, Leah, their daughters, and, hidden
in an unexpected spot, plane tickets to Paris.
Hoping to uncover clues--and her husband--Leah sets off for
France with her girls. Upon their arrival, she discovers an
unfinished manuscript, one Robert had been writing without
her knowledge . . . and that he had set in Paris. The Eady
girls follow the path of the manuscript to a small,
floundering English-language bookstore whose weary
proprietor is eager to sell. Leah finds herself accepting
the offer on the spot.
As the family settles into their new Parisian life, they
trace the literary paths of some beloved Parisian classics,
including Madeline and The Red Balloon, hoping
more clues arise. But a series of startling discoveries
forces Leah to consider that she may not be ready for what
solving this mystery might do to her family--and the Paris
she thought she knew.
Charming, haunting, and triumphant, Paris by the Book
follows one woman's journey as she writes her own story,
exploring the power of family and the magic that hides
within the pages of a book.
