Publisher's Summary

Patriotism is not enough. I must have no hatred or bitterness towards anyone. Nurse Edith Cavell, on the eve of her execution, 1915.

Scarred by his experiences in World War 1, German doctor Sebastian Braun lives a quiet life tending to his patients and his beloved garden. Until Sophie Hathaway bursts into his life and challenges his dearly held beliefs. And just at the moment Sebastian discovers love for the first time, war is on the horizon once again, threatening not just his peace of mind…

As the Germans approach the Channel Islands, Sebastian has to make choices: be the peace-loving man he has become or stand up and fight for his principles? When he and Sophie are separated, Sebastian is left realising love may have eluded him forever. Until a chance meeting in Paris sets the wheels in motion for a dangerously devastating love affair.

Set against the backdrop of World War 2, The Paris Affair is a poignant story, beautifully told of love, loss and the resilience of the human spirit.

Not my cup of tea!

Hours and hours and hours of boring navel gazing and “self introspection” by a not very interesting main character. There’s really no story until the last two hours. quit while you’re ahead.

Sometimes confusing

I struggled to finish the book. There were too many characters to keep up with but the narrator was good.

I LOVE THIS BOOK!

I have over 200 historical fiction titles in my library and this is one of my favorites! I finished it in 2 days (which is a record for me!) because I couldn't stop listening. The narrator is excellent, the story is full of emotion, wit and surprise. Wonderful listen, highly recommend!
