Santa Ana, CA (PRWEB) June 24, 2010
Set against the chilling backdrop of Nazi-Occupied Paris in 1944, The Last Train from Paris tells the story of forbidden love between an artist turned French soldier and a Russian ballerina.
While apprenticing for Henri Matisse, Jean-Luc Beauchamp meets Natasha, who becomes his creative muse and lone inamorata, inspiring him to become the painter he dreams of being. But Jean-Luc isn’t the only man who is enamored with Natasha, and when a Nazi officer forces his attentions on her, she must feign indifference to keep Jean-Luc alive. Driven by passion for his country, his art, and his lover, Jean-Luc fights for France’s liberation, even as Natasha loses her freedom and desperately struggles to keep her own secrets hidden.
Loosely based on the real life adventures of Joan Miró, who escaped France on the last train from Paris with his Constellation portfolio, The Last Train from Paris skillfully interweaves truth and fiction into an unforgettable romance.
What editors are saying about The Last Train from Paris:
“The Last Train from Paris is a wonderful addition to the genere. It is fun, loud, bold, provocative and quite simply, glorious.”
--Eric Jones, BookReview.com
“The Last Train from Paris is what I call a painfully beautiful book, beautiful not because of its subject, but in spite of it. The little Paris vignettes, the scenes of utter horror, the musings on art, the love scenes, the bravery and cowardice and the passion and despair all contribute to a potent mixture of emotions stirred by the masterful narrative.”
--Olivia Baumgartner-Jackson, Reader Views
