Format: Hardcover
I must admit that I am biased toward the time and setting in which this book is placed, nineteenth century France. However any reader would be totally engulfed in this novel from beginning to end... I am SURE of that. I cried on two occasions in this book and felt all of the other emotions at different times during this novel. From the time that the dwarf, Nandou, who was larger than life, first sees Jeanne, to the last page one will not want to leave Paris. The line that sticks in my mind the most is at the very end...."...the smile that will never be changed and the wind that rose to meet it"

One of my favourites March 9 2014
By Joan Blythe - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover
Kay N Smith writes with such fluidity. I love this tale of Nandou the dwarf who falls in love with an impoverished girl and brings her up. It is a timeless classic and much under appreciated in my view. I bought this book years back and an glad to review it.
Great read! Aug. 4 2012
By Kathleen T. Dean - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover
This book had wonderful characters, especially Nandou and Jeanne. The setting of the story in 19th century France really came alive, not only the politics, but the art and theater worlds as well. Highly recommended!!

a tale of Paris March 29 2009
By Ree Strawser - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
I looked a long time for this book and finally found it through Amazon (should have looked here first). Kay Nolte Smith brought Paris a live for me and I am a Francophone to the hilt!
