Dear Librarians,

When Willie Pears begins teaching at an immigrant center in Paris, the lines between teaching and mothering blur. Willie's fled to France with her beloved brother Luke, where she falls for Macon, a passionate French lawyer. When Gita, a student at the center, escapes, Willie has to make a choice.

A Slate Magazine Summer Reading List Pick. Novelist Richard Russo writes that the world of PARIS WAS THE PLACE is, "by turns achingly beautiful and brutally unjust, as vividly rendered as its characters, whose joys and struggles we embrace as our own."

Thanks,
Susan Conley
