A multifaceted love story of a husband gone missing and the family he leaves behind, of a half-finished manuscript set in Paris, of a search that takes the family to France where they find themselves rescuing a failing bookstore, following the paths of Parisian classics, and drawing closer to unexpected truths.

Once a week, I chase men who are not my husband. . . .

When eccentric novelist Robert Eady abruptly vanishes, he leaves behind his wife, Leah, two teenaged daughters, and four unexpected plane tickets to Paris.

Hoping to uncover clues--and her husband--Leah and the children set off for France. Upon their arrival, Leah finds a half-finished manuscript in her e-mail, one that Robert had been writing without her knowledge . . . and that he set in Paris. The Eady women follow the path of the manuscript to a small, failing English-language bookstore, where one of Robert's old novels sits in the window. And when the weary manager offers to sell them the whole shop, Leah accepts on the spot.

As the family settles into their new Parisian life, they are all on a path to finding Robert, tracing the literary paths of some beloved Parisian classics, including Madeline and The Red Balloon, hoping for more clues. When a sudden discovery reveals that Robert may be closer than anyone had imagined, Leah faces the reality that she may not be ready for what this final clue has in store for her family.

At once haunting and charming, Paris by the Book follows one woman's journey of self-discovery as her story is being rewritten, exploring the power of family and the magic that hides within the pages of a book. Download and start listening now!
