Publisher's Summary

The number one New York Times best-selling author of life-changing fiction brings her signature “emotional, heart-tugging” (Woman’s World) prose to this wise and worldly novel of forgiveness and hope in the City of Lights.

In Indiana, Ashley Baxter Blake and her husband are about to take an anniversary trip to Paris, but she is hesitant. More than two decades ago, she made her most grievous mistake in that same city. She has never forgiven herself for what happened there, and she still harbors secrets that she’s afraid will come to light. Just before the trip, Ashley gets a call from her niece. Jessie explains that her French boyfriend’s mother remembers working at a bakery with an American named Ashley. “Could that be you?” 

When Alice and Ashley meet, a flood of memories comes for both women, taking Ashley back to a reckless affair and an unexpected pregnancy and Alice to the night she nearly ended it all. Can this reunion bring healing and closure? Maybe it is finally time for Ashley to forgive herself...and Paris.

Very Christian Centered

I did not realize how heavily the author leans on the Christian faith to tell the story. I found it very distracting.

Did not finish

Juvenile, did not finish. The narrator sounded like a sixteen-year-old trying to be grown up.

Totally Unrealistic

Boring . Unrealistic. Cannot believe it would make anyone’s bestseller list. Narrators’ voices grating. I would not recommend this book.

Narration almost ruined the story

I was not a fan of the narrators, they made the main characters sound weak, young and somewhat childish.


Loved the story, though I do wish one part would have been expanded upon, however I will not say which part to not spoil any part of the story.

Again! She does it again!

I love all of Karen Kingsbury books and this one is no different! So much detail, wonderful story line and display of God's hand in so many peoples' lives.
The new narrator was a bit of a adjustment but I di get used to it and she did a good job.

Great story of Gods grace

I love the story, I love all of Karen’s books. I was a little disappointed with the narrator. She made Landon sound like an old man and it didn’t sound as smooth. As always I love the Baxters and how they love and support each other.
