The war is over, but the past is never past …

Paris, 1944.  Charlotte Foret is working in a tiny bookstore in Nazi-occupied Paris struggling to stay alive and keep her baby Vivi safe.  Every day they live through is a miracle until Vivi becomes gravely ill.  In desperation, Charlotte accepts help from an unlikely saviour – and her life is changed forever.

Charlotte is no victim.  She is a survivor.  But the truth of what happened in Paris is something she knows she can never share with anyone, including her daughter.  Can she ever really leave Paris behind, and embrace the next chapter of her life.

Seamlessly interweaving Charlotte’s past in wartime Paris and her present in the 1950s world of New York publishing, Paris Never Leaves You is a heartbreakingly moving and unforgettable story of resilience, love – and impossible choices.
