9780006514404: Three Weeks in Paris

The latest novel from the genuinely bestselling author of seventeen compelling novels, from A Woman of Substance to The Triumph of Katie Byrne.

As students at the prestigious Anya Sedgwick School of Decorative Arts in Paris, Alexandra Gordon, Kay Lenox, Jessica Pierce and Maria Franconi share the challenges and excitement of developing their artistic talents to the fullest under Sedgwick's caring and demanding guidance. But once best friends, they part enemies, and after graduation they go their separate ways, pursuing careers and establishing lives in different corners of the world.

Alexandra, a set designer, becomes a leading figure in New York's theatre world. Kay, who marries and moves to Scotland, designs a successful line of clothing. Jessica, an interior designer, makes her home in California, while Maria returns to her native Italy, where she continues to work in her family's textile business.

For each of them, the arrival of an invitation to Paris to celebrate Anya Sedgwick's eighty-fifth birthday stirs up complicated feelings: nostalgic memories are coloured by poignant regrets and the reluctance to revisit their own pasts mixes with curiosity about the other women. It is ultimately their desire to deal with unfinished business that convinces all of them to attend the party. During three eventful weeks in Paris, they visit their old haunts, rekindle ties, and awaken in each other the sense of wonder, adventure, and possibilities they had shared so long ago.

Review:

Praise for Barbara Taylor Bradford:

‘The storyteller of substance’ The Times

‘Few novelists are as consummate as Barbara Taylor Bradford at keeping the reader turning the page. She is one of the world’s best at spinning yarns.’ Guardian

From the Back Cover:

They were inseparable friends

Once, Alexandra, Kay, Jessica and Maria shared all the excitement of studying at a prestigious art school in Paris. But, by the time they left for different corners of the world, the four girls were sworn enemies.

So when, years later, invitations to celebrate their tutor's eighty-fifth birthday arrive, nostalgic memories are stirred, along with curiosities and regrets. During three eventful weeks in Paris, the four women return to old haunts, rekindle once strong ties an re-awaken in each other the sense of wonder and adventure they had cherished so long ago.
