About Paris by the book
When eccentric novelist Robert Eady abruptly vanishes, he leaves behind his wife, Leah; their daughters; and, hidden in an unexpected spot, plane tickets to Paris.
Hoping to uncover clues—and her husband—Leah sets off for France with her girls. Upon their arrival, Leah discovers an unfinished manuscript, one that Robert had been writing without her knowledge . . . and that he had set in Paris. The Eady women follow the path of the manuscript to a floundering English-language bookstore whose weary proprietor is eager to sell.
The whole store? Today? Yes, but Leah’s biggest surprise comes when she hears herself accepting the offer on the spot.
As the family settles into their new Parisian life, they can’t help but trace the literary paths of some beloved Parisian classics, including Madeline and The Red Balloon, hoping for more clues. But a series of startling discoveries forces Leah to acknowledge that she may not be ready for what solving this mystery might do to her family—and the Paris she thought she knew.
At once haunting and charming, Paris by the Book follows one woman’s journey of self-discovery as her story is being rewritten, exploring the power of family and the magic that hides within the pages of a book.
