A big thank you to all of my readers for your support this year! Happy Holidays to all! And now, for a synopsis of Paris, Rue des Martyrs…
Some encounters make a difference.
Four strangers in Paris. Each one is on a quest: to uncover a family secret, to grasp a new chance at love, to repair mistakes of the past. Four stories entwine, four quests become one, as their paths cross amid the beauty, squalor, animation and desolation of a street in Paris, the rue des Martyrs.
Rafael's search for his birth mother leads him to love and grim family secrets. Cecile's view of herself as an unsatisfied housewife is radically changed by the promise of a passionate liaison. Andre, an aging actor, troubled by the arrival of the son he abandoned years ago, must make a choice, to either lose his son forever or put aside pride and seek redemption. Mira travels to Paris to begin a new life and forget about love... or so she intends.
Four strangers, four stories, one riveting novel.
What reviewers have said about Paris, Rue des Martyrs…
“Adria Cimino proves a reliable narrator, guiding readers through a tangled maze, and rewards them with the realization of the interconnectedness of her characters’ lives, as well as the readers' own.” – Ivory Owl Reviews (4 Stars)
“I was so riveted by this book that I stayed up until 3 a.m. to finish it and read it in one sitting. I really enjoyed how complex the characters were, each one had a dramatic backstory and vastly different personalities.” – Mom's Small Victories (4 Stars)
