Product description

Review

Alyson Richman's writing sings in her evocative new novel set in Paris at the dawn of World War II. The Velvet Hours is a beautiful and compelling portrait of two women facing their unknown past and an unimaginable future as their world begins to crumble." Kristin Hannah, #1 New York Times bestselling author of The Nightingale
Richman deftly weaves fact and fiction to create a carefully wrought story of love, of what the heart chooses to give up, and what it chooses to keep. Highly recommended to readers who enjoyed Kristen Hannah'sThe Nightingale. New York Timesbestselling author Karen White
A book as full of treasures as the Paris apartment that inspired it....A masterful mix of the glamour of the Belle Epoque and the shadows of impending war. New York Times bestselling author Lauren Willig
"Richman develops an enthralling saga of two women alternating between the late 1800's and 1930's based on an actual Paris apartment. The lush atmosphere of the Belle Epoque and the stress of the coming war, the wonderful relationship between the women along with the fascinating historical backdrops draw readers into a lavish, beautifully written novel. It's nearly impossible to put down and so moving that fans of The Nightingale and WW II novels will be enthralled and delighted." RT Book Reviews
