I rarely, if ever, read historical romances but I thoroughly enjoyed this World War 2 Paris romance between two Americans, a former ballerina who buys and runs an English language bookstore when its Jewish owners are forced to leave and an American businessman running a factory. Unbeknowst to the other, each is helping the Allies, in their own way.

The book is beautifully written, clearly evoking life and hardships in 1940/1941 wartime Paris, and involves well-drawn characters.

I thoroughly enjoyed this page turner and, while it was first book I've read by this author, I'm already deciding which of her books to read next. ( )

This book may be published as a Christian Romance but the setting around the World War period makes it more of an historical fiction encased with predictable romance.

1941, the story is partially set inside a Paris book store specializing in English literature despite that at the time Paris was under Nazis hands. The showcase two Americans, Lucie Girard, a former ballerina, living above the Green Leaf Books store decided to leave her profession to buy the store from the Jewish owners who needed to flee. Paul Aubrey, a widowed with a young daughter stayed behind at the request of the US government to gather useful intelligence while keeping his factory open producing German military equipment.

They met at the bookstore where Lucy secretly passed on coded message for the resistance. Being a rich entrepreneur working for the German, Lucy thought Paul was a collaborator and wanted nothing to do with him. But slowly as they became closers their feelings for each other changed and love was in the air..... awe....Their lives took an about turn the day the US entered the war and Sarah and Paul secrets were uncovered by the Gestapo.

In “Until Leaves Fall in Paris”, Sarah Sundin brings the streets of Paris alive with an evocative prose that sets us right in the busy and dangerous streets of Paris. We have several tense moments told without being too graphic. Eventually when our two lovebirds realized they needed to trust each other in order to survive the narrative changed tone and became mellow and harmonious. The plot is unique, well-written and filled with great characters. It is a story that kept my attention till the very last page.

Being a Christian based novel faith is at the forefront although not overly stated. For those not into religious connotations or scriptures you will not be overwhelmed by them. But who wouldn’t pray to the Almighty if the Gestapo were on your tails....Well-done.

I received this book from Revell via Netgalley for an honest and unbiased review ( )

As the Nazis march toward Paris in 1940, American ballerina Lucie Girard buys her favorite English-language bookstore to allow the Jewish owners to escape. Lucie struggles to run Green Leaf Books due to oppressive German laws and harsh conditions, but she finds a way to aid the resistance by passing secret messages between the pages of her books.

Widower Paul Aubrey wants nothing more than to return to the States with his little girl, but the US Army convinces him to keep his factory running and obtain military information from his German customers. As the war rages on, Paul offers his own resistance by sabotaging his product and hiding British airmen in his factory. After they meet in the bookstore, Paul and Lucie are drawn to each other, but she rejects him when she discovers he sells to the Germans. And for Paul to win her trust would mean betraying his mission.

Until Leaves Fall In Paris by Sarah Sundin is such a powerful WWII fiction to read. It is written so clearly that is is easy to see the fear the people must have lived through at that time. I kept reading this book to see what was going to happen. This story did a great job of showing how the Nazis slowly took control of Paris and how it got control of those living and working there. Lucie could not sell certain books and Paul was forced to make vehicles that could be used to benefit the Nazis. It was interesting to see how Paul and his daughter were treated by those from their church. And how Paul and Lucie had to hide their true relationship to survive.

I can’t begin to imagine what it was like for those who lived through these events, the strength the needed to survive. The trust they needed to have to survive while fleeing to safety and the faith they needed to know they would reunite with family. This is a great book that gives just a small glimpse as to what it may have been like for those who lived in Paris in the 1940. This story has suspense and a touch of romance.

I voluntarily received a complimentary copy of this story from Net Galley and Revell Publishing. This is my honest review ( )

Sarah Sundin has done it again, an amazing page turner, that you never want to end!
Set in WWII France, and most before the American's are part of the war effort. We meet amazing people that put others before themselves, and help thwart the evil presence that is invading their lives.
We meet Lucie Girard, and her love for ballet, so much so she has spent most of her young life in France, but she cares for people more and ends up owning a bookstore. We also meet Paul Aubrey, and his owning a plant that now makes trucks for the Germans, a collaborator? Then there is precious Josie, Paul's daughter, and she steals the show so to speak!
We get to see how these lives get intertwined, and hope that somehow these people will survive.
I received this book through LibraryThing, and was not required to give a positive review. ( )
