    This is a beautiful well written love story to the city of Paris. It's written in dual timelines - one is Celine's story in the 40s when Paris was occupied by the Germans and the other is Caroline's story in today's Paris. Sometimes with dual timelines, I enjoy one story more than the ...

    I thought that the story line was fantastic. I was thrown off by the title and almost didn't ask to get a copy of the book to review. I'm so glad I took a chance from the description. Sarah Jio does a masterful job of weaving the past and the present together as we follow the travai...

    4.5 rounding up because all of her books have been very satisfying for me. Interesting historical fiction, mixing past with present, I was fearful it was going to be reminiscent of another best seller I won?t mention due to being a spoiler, but I almost cried at the end which is sign...

    Historical fiction is one of my favorite genres, particularly books that focus on the time period during Hitlers reign. I believe we should never stop educating ourselves about that time in history. Never forget, and never let those lives lost be forgotten. All The Flowers In Paris...

    All the Flowers in Paris is Sarah Jio?s tenth novel. I have read all nine of her works, and I was eager to devour All the Flowers in Paris. Ms. Jio said she has been wanting to write a novel set in Paris and this was her love letter to that city. It is a dual timeline novel that goes...

    After reading All the Flowers in Paris, I have discovered a new favorite author. Read the book to find out the link between the World War II characters of Celine and Cosi and the modern day character, Caroline. Since it is mostly unpredictable, it became a "couldn't put it down" book.....
