About The Book

Finding the one is only the beginning…
1954. Zara is fifteen the first time she meets Leon. During a power cut in a small French museum, the two spend one short hour in the dark talking about their love for art, Monet and Paris. Neither knows what the other looks like. Both know their lives will never be the same. 1963. In Paris, Leon no longer believes he will ever find the girl he lost that night. After dreaming about him for years, Zara thinks she has already found him. When they meet at an exhibition, they don’t recognise each other – yet the way they feel is so familiar… Over the course of twenty years, Zara and Leon are destined to fall in love again and again. But will they ever find a way to be together?

My Thoughts

Some books leave you a print in your heart which make them difficult to forget, that’s what happened to me with the book “Someday In Paris”; emotive, sweet and unforgettable I will have always a copy with me to re-read it in the moments of need. I’ve read a lot of romance books and even if they all have a heart not all let you without a breath when you read them! This is the story of Zara and Leon, a love that tries to resist everything and everyone while the fate tries to keep them separate. It will seem “simple” but the story is so beautiful, told by Zara in the present to her daughter, remembering all her life. Because their family has a legend, the women of the family have a dream wherever their age when they meet the love of their life. They could try to find them or forget the dream, it’s their choice, but as I am sure you know, the feeling you have when you are with the one you love is difficult to forget. So, this is the story of how Zara and Leon met when they were young (15!) but they seem to always cross paths but never to crush, they always feel a deep connection when they meet, but never long enough to get their relation more profound. I really don’t have words to explain how much I loved this story, Zara is a strong woman that will always try to follow her dreams, personal and professional; and that’s what makes this story beautiful, she is not waiting for her love, she searches for it with all her strength. I really don’t want to make any spoiler, but this is the most beautiful book I’ve read in a while and it will be on my top ten this year for sure!
