American history researcher Hannah travels to Paris as does Moroccan teenager Tariq. Hannah is writing a book chapter about women during the German occupation during WW II; Tariq is looking for evidence of his French-born mother who he barely remembers. Their paths cross in memorable ways.
Faulks’s writing is always also memorable with many literary references and unexpected storylines. My disadvantage was that I’m only an armchair French traveler, having only 'seen' Paris in books, and recognize little French language. I still really enjoyed reading this story, but would have been wonderful to know the sounds and smells of Tariq and Hannah's Métro journeys firsthand .
