Publisher's Summary

After the death of her art dealer father, 40-year-old Gaby Greenwood's unmoored grief drives her to Paris alone, leaving her American husband behind. Where better for an existential crisis than the city so many artists have loved?

Walking through the streets, she sees a man with white hair and a worn corduroy jacket - a dead ringer for her late father. A ghost? Or has mourning driven her mad? Then she receives a letter from a woman she never knew existed - her father's lover of three decades. The mysterious Françoise has been entrusted with her father's last gift to Gaby, a valuable 17th-century still life. The woman is also the bearer of so many of her father's secrets.

But when Gaby takes a French lover, she starts to question everything she ever knew about her father and her own double life: America or Paris, husband or lover, old life or a new, reimagined one?

    Story
    "...a bit of a trial!..."
    Would you say that listening to this book was time well-spent? Why or why not?

    The story had an engaging plot..


    What was the most interesting aspect of this story? The least interesting?

    The setting was the most interesting aspect of this story...


    Would you listen to another book narrated by Cassandra Campbell?

    No, I would not listen to another book narrated by Cassandra Campbell...it was a bit of a trial getting past the voice of this author and the various accents created for each character, to be able to enjoy the story...not sure to what extent the voice/accent (negatively) coloured my enjoyment ...


    Was Paris Still Life worth the listening time?

    Yes, I guess so in the end...it certainly made me aware of how the voice of the audible narrator can impact upon enjoyment of a story...
