"Paris, 1939. Young, ambitious, and tempestuous, Odile Souchet has it all: Paul, her handsome police officer beau; Margaret, her best friend from England; her adored twin brother Remy; and a dream job at the American Library in Paris, working alongside the library's legendary director, Dorothy Reeder. But when World War II breaks out, Odile stands to lose everything she holds dear - including her beloved library. After the invasion, as the Nazis declare a war on words and darkness falls over the City of Light, Odile and her fellow librarians join the Resistance with the best weapons they have: books. They risk their lives again and again to help their fellow Jewish readers. When the war finally ends, instead of freedom, Odile tastes the bitter sting of unspeakable betrayal. Montana, 1983. Odile's solitary existence in gossipy small-town Montana is unexpectedly interrupted by Lily, her neighbor, a lonely teenager longing for adventure. As Lily uncovers more about Odile's mysterious past, they find they share a love of language, the same longings, the same lethal jealousy. Odile helps Lily navigate the troubled waters of adolescence by always recommending just the right book at the right time, never suspecting that Lily will be the one to help her reckon with her own terrible secret. Based on the true story of the American Library in Paris, The Paris Library explores the geography of resentment, the consequences of terrible choices made, and how extraordinary heroism can be found in the quietest of places"--… (lisätietoja)

This book celebrates libraries and tells a mostly true story of the American Library in Paris just before and during the Nazi Occupation. Odile, being the main character that also begins again in Montana in 1985. Very well researched and told. ( )

Wat een prachtig verhaal.. ( )

I loved this book. It has two storylines, one modern in the U.S.and one in Paris during World War II. The characters are realistic. You feel as if you know them. The settings are described with detail and you can picture where the action is taking place. A mystery continues throughout the novel, and it is not solved until the end. I also loved the references to the Dewey Decimal system. That appealed to an old librarian like me. ( )

The Paris Library is based on a true institution and experiences of its librarians. The American Library in Paris is a subscribers' library for both French and English readers. It continues to operate and contains the largest collection of English written works in mainland Europe. The main character, Odile, worked in the library during the time of the Nazi occupation. That was a difficult time because of the international staff; many of whom became the enemy under Nazi rule.

Most of Odile's story is told during that turbulent time. Fifty years later she is a widow in Montana and mentors a teenaged girl who lives next door. Lily's story is moving and her life is enhanced by her friendship with Odile. ( )

This book alternates between the two main characters, Odile, a young woman in Paris who graduated from library school and apples for a position at the American Library in Paris beginning in February of 1939 and Lily, a middle school student in Froid, Montana, beginning in 1983. Odile's family wants her to marry, but she is not interested until she meets Paul. However, she still loves the library and books and can support herself. All is ok until the Nazis take Paris and begin shutting down libraries. The ALP manages to stay open through the efforts of Miss Reeding who knows Dr. Fuchs, the person the Nazis put in charge of the libraries. However, people begin disappearing and their Jewish subscribers are forbidden to enter the library. Odile makes friends with the other librarians and one subscriber, Margaret, who has brought her child Christine to the story hour. Margaret is the wife of a British diplomat and wealthy. Margaret eventually begins to volunteer at the library since she is pretty much cut off from Paris society due to lack of speaking French. Odlie's twin brother Remy enlists in the French army and is captured by the Germans. In the meantime Lily's mother dies and her father remarries causing much strife for Lily along with the usual teenage growing pains. Lily befriends her next door neighbor, Mrs. Odile Gustafson, a French war bride. Her son was killed in a war and her husband, Buck, has died. Lily is fascinated by everything French so Odile works at teaching her French, serves as a surrogate mother, life teacher, confidante, and friend of Lily's parents. The mystery is how Odile ended up in Montana when her beau in Paris was Paul, a French policeman. ( )
