Product description

Review

Winter in 19th-century Paris is wonderfully evoked and Beatrice Colin's prose is suitably mesmerising for this rather beautiful love story. * The Times * A hugely satisfying, romantic and evocative read. * Woman & Home * Colin is a talented literary engineer. * Washington Post * To be in Paris to witness the construction of the Eiffel Tower is a magnificent occasion...This exquisitely written, shadowy historical novel will appeal to a wide variety of readers, including fans of the Belle Epoque. * Library Journal (starred review) * Colin has a sure hand with the atmospheres of both cities and with the mores and dress of the period, and she manages to continually raise the stakes for her characters without ever resorting to melodrama. A novel of soaring ambitions, public and private. * Kirkus Reviews * A must-read for every fan of Paris, for every fan of the fight for love against the odds, and for every fan of great and deeply satisfying storytelling. -- David Gillham, bestselling author of CITY OF WOMEN To Capture What We Cannot Keep is reminiscent of the Paris it so beautifully, hauntingly brings to life: it's romantic, moving and memorable. -- Chris Bohjalian, bestselling author of MIDWIVES A compelling story of love constricted by the demands of separate social classes. Told against the splendidly absorbing background of the building of the Eiffel Tower, it emerges as fresh and different. A captivating read. -- Kate Alcott, bestselling author of THE DRESSMAKER
