Moonlight Over Paris
Spring, 1924Recovering from a broken engagement and a near-fatal illness, Lady Helena Montagu-Douglas-Parr vows to live life on her own terms. Breaking free from the stifling constraints of society, she travels to France to stay with her free-spirited aunt. For one year, she will simply be Miss Parr. She will explore the streets of Paris and pursue her artistic dreams.Paris is a bohemian paradise teeming with actors, painters, and writers who welcome Helena into their exciting circle. Among them is Sam Howard, an irascible, infuriatingly honest correspondent for the Chicago Tribune. Dangerously attractive and deeply scarred by the war, Sam is unlike any man she's ever encountered. He offers her a glimpse of a future that is irresistible and impossible.As Paris rises from the ashes of war, so does Helena. But is she strong enough to completely let go of the past and follow her heart, no matter where it leads her?them is Sam Howard, an irascible and infuriatingly honest correspondent for the Chicago Tribune. Dangerously attractive and deeply scarred by the horror and carnage of the war, Sam is unlike any man she has ever encountered. He calls her Ellie, sees her as no one has before, and offers her a glimpse of a future that is both irresistible and impossible.As Paris rises phoenix-like from the ashes of the Great War, so too, does Helena. Though she's shed her old self, she's still uncertain of what she will become and where she belongs. But is she strong enough to completely let go of the past and follow her heart, no matter where it leads her?Artfully capturing the Lost Generation and their enchanting city, Moonlight Over Paris is the spellbinding story of one young woman's journey to find herself, and claim the life--and love--she truly wants.51, quai de BourbonParis, France12 February 1924My dearest Helena,I have two suggestions that I hope you will consider. First, I would be very happy if you would come to stay with me in France. You said in your letter that you wished to Live--I so love your use of capital letters here--and where better than France for such an endeavor?Second--and let me emphasize that this is a suggestion and not an edict--if you do come to stay I think it best if you find some way to occupy your days. I live quietly, and I worry that you would quickly find my company boring--but if you have something to do you will be much happier for it. Given your interest in art, and your undeniable talent in that regard, I think you ought to consider a term of study at one of the private academies in Paris.I leave for Antibes at the end of this week--write to me there, no matter what you decide.With affectionate good wishes,Auntie A
