In times of war, choices are never as black and white as letters on a page.

Paris, 1939.
Odile Souchet has it all: a handsome police officer for a beau, a glamorous best friend from England, and her dream job at the American Library in Paris: a thriving community of students, writers, diplomats, and booklovers. But when war breaks out, Odile stands to lose everything she holds dear - including her beloved library.

Montana, 1983.
Lonely teenager Lily is convinced that her chic neighbour Odile, a French war bride, was a Résistante who passed messages to spies in books. Lily's persistence wears down Odile's carefully constructed defences, but even as the two become friends, Odile still refuses to talk about her past. She sees so much of herself in Lily: the same love of language, the same longings - and the same lethal jealousy that led to her own darkest secret . . .

Inspired by a little-known chapter of World War II history, and the courageous decisions made by the women who kept The American Library in Paris open in defiance of Nazi Occupation, The Paris Library is a love letter to libraries and librarians and the powerful bond book lovers share, an exploration of the deep friendships forged in extreme times, and the devastating consequences of unspeakable betrayal.
