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

It was fascinating to see what people would have thought about this iconic tower.
The characters are well written and I felt like I really cared what happened to them.
Loved this story
First of all, it’s set during the construction of Eiffel Tower! Paris during the end of nineteenth century! Bustles, big skirts, tiered, draped and frilled trains ornamented with frills, pleats, ruffles, braids and fringing. Isn’t it fascinating?
Secondly, it’s filled with events and the most intriguing romance between different classes in the era when status, marriage and people’s opinion mattered so much more.
A captivating novel that will make you smile and cry as you root for our beloved main characters.
Looking for a X-mas gift to treat yourself? This might be just the one for you!
