"Hold on to your baguette because this is one story that will take you straight to Paris in the 30s. You will not be able to put this book down." Corinne Brown, author, MacGregor's Lantern
From the Back Cover
An impromptu trip to the City of Light carries Lily further than her imagination ever took her. Arriving unexpectedly in 1937 Paris--penniless, friendless, and clueless--Lily must rely on her wobbly French and her wits.
But a mysterious invitation offers her entrée into the glittering inner circle of Sylvia Beach herself. This clue leads her further into the complex and dangerous Paris on the brink of war--and it's not the friendly literary community she had imagined. Lily becomes a character inside the world that she had fantasized about--but with chilling consequences.
In her quest to return home, Lily finds herself enmeshed in an undercover league of time-traveling bibliophiles. Charged with a daunting task, along the way Lily falls for a gallant young Frenchman, discusses the art of writing with Ernest Hemingway and Gertrude Stein, and runs afoul of a dashing Nazi agent. In order to escape unscathed, Lily must make choices that force her to reconcile her past and that may revise literary history forever.
A celebration of a timeless city's allure, an engaging romantic fantasy, and a valentine to book lovers in every era, Chasing Sylvia Beach is a novel to savor and be spellbound by.
