Críticas:

"I love that in The "Paris Architect", a mercenary, talented man's passion for his creative work leads him down moral roads he never could have envisioned. The ingenious hiding spaces and the people in them infiltrated my imagination for weeks. I dreamed about this novel." - Jenna Blum, New York Times bestselling author of Those Who Save Us and The Stormchasers

"A very worthwhile story. Everyone is put in a position to choose what matters most...the reader is left wondering how one would respond in such a situation." - Nancy Nevin Nelson, Sunriver Books & Music, Sunriver, OR

"Charles Belfoure's historical thriller delivers the suspense of Schindler's List and the German-occupied Paris of Alan Furst in this tense tale of an architect hiding Jews from the Nazis." - Julie Kramer, author of Shunning Sarah and Stalking Susan

"A gripping page-turner... Charles Belfoure shines a light on the human heart -- a complex maze of love, hope, and the yearning for redemption -- and in doing so, provides a riveting reminder of sacrifices made by history's most unlikely heroes to triumph over evil." - Kristina McMorris, author of Bridge of Scarlet Leaves

"In architect Belfoure's fiction debut, the architectural and historical details are closely rendered ... A satisfyingly streamlined World War II thriller." - Kirkus

"A vivid, suspenseful story which keeps you gripped to the very last page. Charles Belfoure writes with great warmth, conjuring up an intriguing cast of characters, and painting a fascinating picture of Paris under the Occupation, with all its contradictions the opulence, and the fear." - Margaret Leroy, author of The Soldier's Wife

"All novelists are architects. But are all architects novelists? Charles Belfoure in his impressive debut seems to have brought us
the best of both worlds. Here is a novel to read alongside the latest Alan Furst. I hope there will be more." - Alan Cheuse, Novelist and NPR book commentator

"Belfoure writes like an up-and-coming Ken Follett ... There's plenty of detail to interest architecture buffs, too.
" - Booklist

""Architect and debut author Belfoure's portrayal of Vichy France is both disturbing and captivating, and his beautiful tale demonstrates that while human beings are capable of great atrocities, they have a capacity for tremendous acts of courage as well." - Library Journal" - Library Journal

"By combining his architectural background with his knowledge of Parisian culture and history, Belfoure tells an intriguing story about the people who risked their lives to save individuals who often had nothing to give in return except their gratitude." - Deseret News

Reseña del editor:

A Parisian architect is paid handsomely to devise secret hiding spaces for Jews in his Nazi-occupied country but struggles with risking his life for a cause he is ambivalent towards, until a personal failure brings home their suffering.

Descripción Softcover. Condición: New. "A beautiful and elegant account of an ordinary man's unexpected and reluctant descent into heroism during the second world war." —Malcolm GladwellA thrilling debut novel of World War II Paris, from an author who's been called "an up and coming Ken Follett." (Booklist)In 1942 Paris, gifted architect Lucien Bernard accepts a commission that will bring him a great deal of money and maybe get him killed. But if he's clever enough, he'll avoid any trouble. All he has to do is design a secret hiding place for a wealthy Jewish man, a space so invisible that even the most determined German officer won't find it. He sorely needs the money, and outwitting the Nazis who have occupied his beloved city is a challenge he can't resist.But when one of his hiding spaces fails horribly, and the problem of where to hide a Jew becomes terribly personal, Lucien can no longer ignore what's at stake. The Paris Architect asks us to consider what we owe each other, and just how far we'll go to make things right. Written by an architect whose knowledge imbues every page, this story becomes more gripping with every soul hidden and every life saved. Nº de ref. del artículo: 5446425
