Paris Never Leaves You: A Novel

Ellen Feldman ’64

Living through World War II while working in a Paris bookstore with her young daughter and fighting for her life, Charlotte is no victim; she is a survivor. But can she survive the next chapter of her life? Alternating between wartime Paris and the 1950s New York publishing world, Paris Never Leaves You by Ellen Feldman '64 is a story of resilience, love, and impossible choices, that explores how survival never comes without a cost. (St. Martin’s Griffin, 2020)

"Wartime Paris is described in vivid, sometimes harrowing, detail... [An] engrossing page-turner." ―Kirkus Reviews
