“I’ve enjoyed Edward Rutherfurd’s books ever since he came out with Sarum back in 1987. What a great fictional history of Salisbury Cathedral! This year my early autumn beach bag may very well contain his latest book, Paris. This novel, like Sarum, spans hundreds of years, telling the story of the city through the lives of four families. But, instead of the straight-forward timeline used in Sarum, Paris moves back and forth in time, reaching as far back as the 13th century and concluding in the tumultuous year 1968.
“Rutherfurd sticks pretty much to his successful writing formula, but his books are wonderful page-turners with interesting characters and colorful details. You’ll barely notice that you’re learning history as you get swept along with the story.”
