Product Description


“Set against the backdrop of occupied France, this is the thrilling story of two American sisters who risk everything to help British pilots evade capture. Three decades after it was originally published in an edited form, Carolyn Hart has released this edition as she originally wrote the novel, adding layers of complexity that leave the reader with a greater understanding of the desires that drive even the most unlikely people to greatness. Irresistible plotting, fabulous characters, and a roller-coaster pace demonstrate why Carolyn Hart is considered to be America’s Agatha Christie.”
Robert Crais, author of Suspect

“Carolyn Hart’s riveting and realistic portrayal of German-occupied Paris keeps the suspense high. Set just before Germany declared war on America and just as the French Resistance started to emerge, Escape from Paris is a compelling page-turner.”
Robin Burcell, bestselling author of The Black List
“A classic story, in classic style, from one of our real treasures. Yes, it’s a wonderful suspense novel. Yes, it’s authentic and gripping and heartbreaking. But this tensely taut tale of World War II courage, sacrifice, and love is brought back to life—after so many years!—by the incomparable style and inimitable talent of the beloved Carolyn Hart.”    
Hank Phillippi Ryan, author of The Other Woman

HASH(0xa4760180) out of 5 stars This Book puts you in the middle of WWII June 14 2013
By Martha A. Cheves - Published on
Format: Paperback
***If he didn't hurry, they were going to be caught. That sergeant would walk down the road in a little while to see why she was taking so long. Why didn't the Englishman hurry? Why had she said she would take him? Why had she been such a fool? If the soldiers searched the car at the gate...Linda shivered uncontrollably although the late August heat baked the little car, making the leather so hot that her blouse and skirt clung wetly to her. Still she shivered. She tried again to light the cigarette. The lighter clicked. The pinpoint of flame wavered but she held it to the cigarette, drew deeply. Dear God, why didn't he come? Her hand reached out, touched the key in the ignition. All she had to do was turn the motor on, put the car in gear and be on her way. She would stop at the gate and show her papers and she wouldn't have to be afraid. The Red Cross pennant on the windshield was her protection. The pennant wouldn't protect her if they found an English soldier hidden in the trunk. She turned the key in the ignition. Why should she take such a frightful chance?***

Eleanor does volunteer work with the Red Cross taking small packets of food to the prisoners being held in the hospitals by the Germans before they move them on to the prisons. Linda is Eleanor's sister. Today's visit to Douellens had been scheduled for a week or more. When Eleanor was up all night with a toothache, Linda volunteered to go in her place. Linda hated sickness - and wounds - and hospitals - and she was dreadfully afraid of the Germans. You see, there is a war going on and the Germans have taken over Paris. What Linda had not expected was to have one of the English prisoners ask her to help him escape. After helping just one English pilot escape, Eleanor, Eleanor's son Robert and Linda find themselves becoming an important link in the chain as they helped others find their way out of Paris and hopefully on to safety.

I've read many of Author Carolyn Hart's books and will read every one I can get my hands on. I love her style of writing, as she always seems to add drama along with humor. But this book was different. I had no idea that this author could write such a wonderful piece of history. I've never been a fan of WWI nor WWII history. When I picked up this book to read I didn't think I would make it through to the end. I was so wrong! All my life I've read and heard about the Jews during WWII but never have I read nor heard much about the treatment of the people by the Germans in other countries. Carolyn Hart makes you see the brutal punishments, torture, and deaths of those who even spoke against them. She takes you into the torture rooms and gives you enough of a description that you knew what had to have gone on there. She takes you to the prisons where the women are held and exposes you to their treatment or should I say lack of it. You become so engrossed with the characters that you feel as if you actually know them on a 1st name basis. And she scares the heck out of you as you follow them through their lives as underground links. I had a very hard time putting this book down. I wanted it to end so the torture would end but I didn't want to stop reading. This is a wonderful book of history.

HASH(0xa3ceae04) out of 5 stars A thrilling tale from World War ll Oct. 29 2011
By Mary Kennedy - Published on
Format: Paperback
I was so happy to discover ESCAPE FROM PARIS, written by one of my favorite mystery authors, Carolyn Hart. The book is an amazing tale of courage and resilience set against the backdrop of Nazi-occupied Paris. It's both intriguing and thought-provoking. How far would you go to save the life of another? ESCAPE FROM PARIS tells the story of two American sisters who risk their lives to save British fliers from arrest. This would be a terrific choice for a book club and would also be a wonderful gift for a veteran or any of our brave men and women serving in the Armed Forces. With its wealth of historical detail, engaging, heroic characters and white-knuckle suspense, ESCAPE FROM PARIS makes an important part of our history come alive. I highly recommend it for all readers.

I enjoyed the story of the two women and their experience during World War II. At times some of the story seemed to be missing. The author generally does an excellent job telling this exceptional tale. It is definitely worth reading and am sure the story would be an enjoyable experience.

This full version of the 1983 book is such a joy to read. It’s a great adventure story set in wartime Paris that rings not only with local authenticity, but with emotional authenticity as well. Impressive.
