As this site is concerned with love, I thought I would write about that wonderful, eternal subject ... I was chatting with a friend the other day about the mysteries surrounding the true story of the abandoned apartment which inspired my novel, when she asked me a question. 'Is the novel a love story?'
Well, the answer is yes, yes and yes! Love weaves its way through the story in all sorts of guises. As I wrote, I became interested in how our perceptions and expectations of love have changed across time and across generations ... and how the time in which we live affects our attitudes to love so very much.
A respected writing teacher once told me that he thought the best love stories were those that ended in tragedy. What do you think? It is something that I have pondered ever since I first heard the idea.
I would never dream of giving away the ending of the love story in 'A Paris Time Capsule.' Things take many turns and we will see what happens to Cat as she tries to unravel the secrets in the beautiful apartment.
There is always a sense of sadness for me when I finish working with characters and a place, in this case, Paris ... but I am looking forward to writing the second novel in the series. That does cheer me up!
New York photographer Cat Jordan has fought hard to free herself from the past, but when a stranger dies, Cat finds herself the sole inheritor of a treasure filled apartment in Paris that has been locked up and abandoned for seventy years. A stash of love letters belonging to Marthe de Florian, one of the Belle Époque’s most famous demimondaines, and the appearance of the mysterious Isabelle de Florian’s grandson leads Cat in search of the reasons why Isabelle kept her Paris apartment a secret, and why she left her entire estate to Cat. As Cat unravels the story, she too begins her own journey, realizing that the secrets in the apartment may finally unfasten the future.
