I’m sure we can all relate to that feeling of needing to find oneself. I wish that my journey to self had been spent on the streets of Paris in summer and I’m sure I’m not alone in that.
Many of us have to take that journey within ourselves without changing our physical location. Grace has planned a 25th anniversary romantic holiday in Paris with her husband, but what he actually wanted was a divorce. Refusing to be broken Grace makes the courageous decision to take the trip alone.
Audrey is also in Paris to escape heartache and the two, who are very different, become fast friends. Often we find what we need the most when we least expect it and One Summer In Paris promises to be a story of new beginnings.
A story of friendship, a story of finding oneself after a massive life change and a story set against the backdrop of Paris, a location sought after by many.
I can’t wait to read what our members thought of this one.
Synopsis from the Publisher’s website:
To celebrate their twenty-fifth wedding anniversary, Grace has planned the surprise of a lifetime for her husband – a romantic getaway to Paris. But she never expected he’d have a surprise of his own: he wants a divorce. Reeling from the shock but refusing to be broken, a devastated Grace makes the bold decision to go to Paris alone.
Audrey, a young woman from London, has left behind a heartache of her own when she arrives in Paris. A job in a bookshop is her ticket to freedom, but with no money and no knowledge of the French language, suddenly a summer spent wandering the cobbled streets alone seems much more likely…until she meets Grace, and everything changes.
Grace can’t believe how daring Audrey is. Audrey can’t believe how cautious newly single Grace is. Living in neighbouring apartments above the bookshop, this unlikely pair offer each other just what they’ve both been missing. They came to Paris to find themselves, but finding this unbreakable friendship might be the best thing that’s ever happened to them…
