July Book Discussion - Paris the Novel by Edward Rutherford

We will read Paris the Novel by Edward Rutherford for our July book

The description:

From Edward Rutherfurd, the grand master of the historical novel, comes a dazzling epic about the magnificent city of Paris. Moving back and forth in time, the story unfolds through intimate and thrilling tales of self-discovery, divided loyalty, and long-kept secrets. As various characters come of age, seek their fortunes, and fall in and out of love, the novel follows nobles who claim descent from the hero of the celebrated poem The Song of Roland; a humble family that embodies the ideals of the French Revolution; a pair of brothers from the slums behind Montmartre, one of whom works on the Eiffel Tower as the other joins the underworld near the Moulin Rouge; and merchants who lose everything during the reign of Louis XV, rise again in the age of Napoleon, and help establish Paris as the great center of art and culture that it is today. With Rutherfurd’s unrivaled blend of impeccable research and narrative verve, this bold novel brings the sights, scents, and tastes of the City of Light to brilliant life.


We usually chat for the first 15-20 minutes before beginning any discussion about the book.

See you there!

    I have to cancel in favour of a very special event with my knitting group. We're going to an alpaca farm and mill- Twisted Sisters. I am very much hoping to meet a baby alpaca!
