Welcome to the Official Website for Edward Rutherfurd

The paperback edition of Paris has been published in the UK, Ireland, Australia, New Zealand, South Africa, Europe (English Language) and other 'open market' territories. If you are thinking of a visit to Paris,  I personally love September and October.

Paris : City of love. City of revolution.  This thrilling and romantic story opens in La Belle Époque, the golden, hedonistic age of peace and joie de vivre. Moving back and forth in time across centuries, the story unfolds through intimate and vivid tales of self-discovery, divided loyalty, passion, and long-kept secrets both fictional and true, set against the backdrop of the city - from the summit of Montmartre to the gothic towers of Notre Dame to the grand boulevards of Saint-Germain, from the medieval world of saints and scholars to the modern French ideals of liberté, égalité, fraternitéRead More and Purchase
