Title: “The Paris Library” 
Author: Janet Skeslien Charles

This is historical fiction based on a true story of the American Library in Paris during the Nazi occupation from 1939-1944.   

Odile is applying for a job opening at the ALP because of the wonderful memories she has from when her aunt took her there as a child – and, of course, because she loves books.  

Once she lands her dream job, she meets and falls in love with Paul, a police officer in her father’s department. All is going perfectly until the war comes to Paris, and slowly things start to change. Rumors are flying about what might be coming.   

As things get worse, and more employees are shipped out to camps or forced back to their homelands, the ones remaining at the ALP are determined to stay open. With the belief that books are for everyone, they take it upon themselves to risk everything to deliver books to those who have been banned from entering the library.   

Odile, her future sister-in-law Bitsi and her best friend Margaret form a tight bond as they lean on each other through the hard times. 

Montana 1983 shows us an elderly Odile who seems to have many secrets she’s keeping from the small community where she lives.  Her teenage neighbor, Lily, lets herself into Odile’s house when she doesn’t answer, claiming she has to write a report on France and needs to interview her.  This starts an unlikely friendship between the two that will impact both of their lives.   

When Lily’s world shatters, Odile is there to help her through. Odile teaches Lily how to speak French and how to treat your friends, and Lily teaches Odile that risks aren’t always bad.   

This is a book-lover’s book about life, loss, love and friendship.
