Staff Reviews


Based on the true story of the American Library in Paris during the German occupation, Odile reveals to her young friend Lily the power of books. “Books and ideas are like blood; they need to circulate, and they keep us alive.” Odile teaches Lily not only French but life lessons about moving on from mistakes, romance, sacrifice, betrayal, friendship and how to treat people with dignity and compassion. Anyone who enjoyed All the Light We Cannot See or The Nightingale will enjoy this novel.

“I can’t think of a more perfect novel to recommend to book lovers than The Paris Library! Not only does it bring to life the true story of the heroic librarians of the American Library in Nazi-occupied Paris, its interwoven narrative of a bereft teenager in 1980s Montana who finds a kindred spirit in her mysterious, reclusive, and book-loving French neighbor is a feat of extraordinary storytelling. The Paris Library is a testament to the everlasting power of literature and literary places to bring people together and be a home for everyone, even during our darkest, most hopeless, and divided times.”
