Recensie

"Captivating, richly drawn."-- "Woman's World"

"A book about families torn apart, friends lost and found, fear, hope, inspiration, and books and a love of reading. Bravo to Janet Skeslien Charles."-- "The Free Lance-Star"

"Well-plotted and richly populated."-- "New York Journal of Books"

"What makes The Paris Library such a tender read is Charles's firsthand experience... Her meticulous research brings these figures to life.... Together the true storylines provide wonderful insight into relationships and friendships that transcend time and place."

-- "BookPage"

"Having lived in an apartment just above the current location of the American Library in Paris, I've always felt connected to the institution and wondered about its story, so I'm grateful to Janet Skeslien Charles for penning such a vivid, enjoyable, based-on-a-true-story tale. In THE PARIS LIBRARY, the beloved library, its staff, and its subscribers come to life and remind us of both the horrors of World War II and the vital role books play in keeping us afloat in difficult times. Well-researched, stirring, and rich with detail, THE PARIS LIBRARY is an ode to the importance of libraries, books, and the human connections we find within both."--Kristin Harmel, New York Times bestselling author of The Book of Lost Names

"The Paris Library is a refreshing novel that celebrates libraries as cradles of community, especially when we need them the most. It shows how literature can be a means of escape, a catalyst for human connection, and a moral center in grim times. A thoroughly enjoyable read, kind-hearted and brimming with delightful bookish allusions."--Matthew Sullivan, author of Midnight at the Bright Ideas Bookstore

"A fresh take on WWII France that will appeal to bibliophiles everywhere. I fell in love with Odile and Lily, with their struggles and triumphs, from the very first page. Meticulously researched, The Paris Library is an irresistible, compelling read."--Fiona Davis, national bestselling author of The Chelsea Girls

"A love letter to Paris, the power of books, and the beauty of intergenerational friendship."-- "Booklist"

"As a Parisian, an ardent bookworm, and a longtime fan of the American Library in Paris, I devoured The Paris Library in one hungry gulp. It is charming and moving, with a perfect balance between history and fiction."--Tatiana de Rosnay, New York Times bestselling author of Sarah's Key

"Delightful...richly detailed...Historical fiction fans will be drawn to the realistic narrative and the bond of friendship forged between a widow and a lonely young girl."-- "Publishers Weekly"

"Intelligent and sensuously rich....A novel tailor-made for those who cherish books and libraries."-- "Kirkus Reviews" --Deze tekst verwijst naar de hardcover editie.
