The war is over, but the past is never past ... Paris, 1944. Charlotte Foret is working in a tiny bookstore in Nazi-occupied Paris struggling to stay alive and keep her baby Vivi safe as the world around them is being torn apart.
Every day they live through is a miracle until Vivi becomes gravely ill. In desperation, Charlotte accepts help from an unlikely saviour - and her life is changed forever. Charlotte is no victim - she is a survivor.
But the truth of what happened in Paris is something she can never share with anyone, including her daughter. But can she ever really leave Paris behind - and survive the next chapter of her life? Seamlessly interweaving Charlotte's past in wartime Paris and her present in the 1950s world of New York publishing, A Bookshop in Paris is a heartbreakingly moving and unforgettable story of resilience, love - and impossible choices.
