Paris by Edward Rutherfurd

City of love.  City of splendour.  City of terror.  City of dreams.

Inspired by the haunting, passionate story of the city of lights, this epic novel weaves a gripping tale of four families across the centuries: from the lies that spawn the noble line of de Cygne to the revolutionary Le Sourds who seek their destruction; from the Blanchards whose bourgeois respectability offers scant protection against scandal to the hard-working Gascons and their soaring ambitions.

Over hundreds of years, these four families are bound by forbidden loves and marriages of convenience; dogged by vengeance and murderous secrets; torn apart by the irreconcilable differences of birth and faith, and brought together by the tumultuous history of their city.

Paris bursts to life in the intrigue, corruption and glory of its people.  Beloved author of Sarum, London, and New York, Edward Rutherfurd illuminates Paris as only he can: capturing the romance and everyday drama of the men and women who, in two thousand years, transformed a humble trading post on the muddy banks of the Seine into the most celebrated city in the world.

Peer & Press Reviews

Paris is a book in which to lose oneself.  As with any historical epic, some coincidences stretch credibility, but Rutherfurd’s writing nevertheless pulls you in.  From romance and relationships to revenge and revolution, Rutherfurd’s Paris is a beautifully crafted intergenerational, multi-family epic.

Literary Treats

Rutherford does a very good job of integrating the geography as well as the history of the city in the story that he weaves…  And certainly the legions of fans Rutherford has gathered from his previous novels should be satisfied that here is more of the same.

Michel Basilières, Toronto Star
