My  Review

Paris Never Leaves You is my first introduction to the talents of Ellen Feldman. After this, it will not be the last. I thought it was a pretty good read. World War II era books are becoming one of my go to genres lately and I was not disappointing with this story. I loved the historical details that made me feel like I was right there within the scenes and living with the characters. It was great to be transported back in time to see what it was like back then.

I am giving Paris Never Leaves You four and a half stars. I will be looking for more by Ellen Feldman in the future. I recommend this one for historical fiction lovers. It is most definitely worth a read. 

I received this book from the publisher. This review is 100% my own honest opinion.
