Description
Following Sarum, London, and New York (winner of the 2010 Langum Prize for American Historical Fiction), Edward Rutherfurd here depicts the history of Paris through the fortunes of six families that stretch back to the 13th century. As various characters come of age, seek their fortunes, and fall in and out of love, the novel follows nobles who claim descent from the hero of "The Song of Roland," a humble family that embodies the ideals of the French Revolution, a pair of brothers from the slums behind Montmartre—one of whom works on the Eiffel Tower as the other joins the underworld near the Moulin Rouge—and merchants who lose everything during the reign of Louis XV, rise again in the age of Napoleon, and help establish Paris as the great center of art and culture that it is today.

"This saga is filled with historical detail and a huge cast of characters, fictional and real, spanning generations and centuries. But Paris, with its art, architecture, culture and couture, is the undisputed main character."—Fort Worth Star-Telegram

"Both Paris, the venerable City of Light, and Rutherfurd, the undisputed master of the multigenerational historical saga, shine in this sumptuous urban epic."—Booklist
