The Paris Library: A Novel | Janet Skeslien Charles

I lost my Dad the day before I turned 11 years old. This quote resonated with me deeply. It truly is a “go at your own pace” life experience. Those who have known grief understand.

Some days are just harder than others.

#theparislibrary #grief

Elizabeth2 I feel this. I lost my Mom 10 years ago, and my Dad 2 and a half years ago. Losing him changed me and the grieving was/is so different. Not sure if it‘s because of losing my second parent or because he was my hero. ❤️ I‘m sorry you lost your dad at such a young age. That must have been so very difficult. 💕 6mo
thecaffinatedreader @Elizabeth2 I am so sorry. Losing both parents is very difficult. Sending you a virtual hug and always here if you need someone to talk to. 6mo
Elizabeth2 @thecaffinatedreader ❤️ We were lucky to have him for as long as we did. I‘m truly sorry you missed out on having your Dad with you as you grew up. Sending you virtual hugs back, and with them a reminder that on those hard days to give yourself grace. 💕 6mo

As a result of my #libbyapp loan of the #audiobook of #janetskesliencharles‘s #theparislibrary ending in a day or two, I‘ve picked up the audiobook of #hilarymantel‘s #bringupthebodies, the sequel to #wolfhall. I‘m enjoying it so far, although I‘ve picked up the speed to 1.25x.

TiredLibrarian Love this one! 9mo

My #libbyapp loan of the #audiobook of #janetskesliencharles‘s #theparislibrary is sadly ending in a day or two, and I‘m unable to renew it this time around for whatever reason. I placed another hold on it of about 6 weeks, so I‘m not sure if I‘ll be able to finish this book in November, but we‘ll see!

Thanks to #NetGalley and #AtriaBooks for the opportunity to read and review this lovely story #TheParisLibrary Pub date 02/02/2021 At first I wasn't sure if this book was going to capture my attention. The story is set in two eras-1939 to 1944 Paris and 1983 to 1989 Montana. Odile has been volunteering at the American Library of Paris and has finally been employed by the directoress, Miss Reeder(an American citizen). I love ⬇️

Crazeedi that Odile thinks of things in terms of the Dewey Decimal Classification. What a unique part of this book! As the war becomes imminent, Miss Reeder is determined to keep it open. The characters that work there and the subscribers who use the library all have wonderful personalities. Fast forward to 1980s Montana, where 12 year old Lily lives next door to reclusive Odile. Lily is determined to befriend her, and when Lily's mom falls I'll, 2y
Crazeedi Odile opens her door and heart to Lily. The story flows between Odile's life at the library and Lily's life in Montana. Their friendship grows as Odile teaches Lily French.Through Odile's life and her mistakes, Lily learns valuable lessons. What's great about this story is that much of the library's story is based in fact. Reeder fought to save the collections and send books to the soldiers at the front. ⬇️ 2y
Crazeedi There is the love story of Odile and Paul that gives the book depth and grace and substance. And her friendship with Margaret will make you cry. You will not be sorry if you read this beautiful book. I highly recommend 2y
