Until Leaves Fall in Paris by Sarah Sundin


 

As the Nazis march toward Paris in 1940, American ballerina Lucie Girard buys her favorite English-language bookstore to allow the Jewish owners to escape. Lucie struggles to run Green Leaf Books due to oppressive German laws and harsh conditions, but she finds a way to aid the resistance by passing secret messages between the pages of her books.

Widower Paul Aubrey wants nothing more than to return to the States with his little girl, but the US Army convinces him to keep his factory running and obtain military information from his German customers. As the war rages on, Paul offers his own resistance by sabotaging his product and hiding British airmen in his factory. After they meet in the bookstore, Paul and Lucie are drawn to each other, but she rejects him when she discovers he sells to the Germans. And for Paul to win her trust would mean betraying his mission.

Master of WWII-era fiction Sarah Sundin invites you onto the streets of occupied Paris to discover whether love or duty will prevail.

My Review


 
Sarah Sundin has done it again, an amazing page turner, that you never want to end!
Set in WWII France, and most before the American's are part of the war effort. We meet amazing people that put others before themselves, and help thwart the evil presence that is invading their lives.
We meet Lucie Girard, and her love for ballet, so much so she has spent most of her young life in France, but she cares for people more and ends up owning a bookstore. We also meet Paul Aubrey, and his owning a plant that now makes trucks for the Germans, a collaborator? Then there is precious Josie, Paul's daughter, and she steals the show so to speak!
We get to see how these lives get intertwined, and hope that somehow these people will survive.
I received this book through LibraryThing, and was not required to give a positive review.
