We'll Always Have Paris

A Novel

About The Book

A charming second-chance love story for fans of The Best Exotic Marigold Hotel.
Does first love deserve a second chance?
During her first week at art college, Rosie Jackson, almost seventeen, locks eyes with the charismatic Peter from across the room of their nude figure drawing class, and the course of her life is changed forever.
Now, on the cusp of sixty-five and recently widowed, Rosie is slowly coming to terms with a new future. And after a chance encounter with Peter forty-seven years later, she is brought back to that summer of 1968, when she fell in love for the first time and dared to dream boldly of a life in Paris. As Rosie and Peter pick up where they had left off, they both begin to wonder what if . . .
Told with warmth, wit, and humor, We’ll Always Have Paris is a moving and uplifting novel about two people giving love a second chance in later life—the choices they make, the lives they lead, and the love they share.

"Lovely. . . . A story that reminds us that love has no boundaries—certainly not age—and that we should grab any chance given to us with both hands.
