A Week in Paris by Rachel Hore.

This story proved to be better than first expected.

Fay Knox, a young talented violinist, seeks answers about her past while in Paris. What she discovers makes her question her identity and who she is.

There is also a duo-arc plotline about Fay’s mother who was enrolled at the Conservatoire before the Second World War and fell in love with a doctor, Eugene, and their consequent life in World War II Paris.

While this book isn’t stellar, its still readable. Its a  good book to read if you find yourself with nothing to do on an airplane. The two plot arcs linked up well as the book progressed. The plot twist near the end was obvious, but expected. Some moments were sad as well, and this book definately threw out more than I first expected.

The scenes set during World War II Paris seemed so vivid. Hore’s research is obviously very good.

MY RATING: *** / *****
