The Velvet Hours
by Alyson Richman
Praise For This Book:
“Alyson Richman’s writing sings in her evocative new novel set in Paris at the dawn of World War II. The Velvet Hours is a beautiful and compelling portrait of two women facing their unknown past and an unimaginable future as their world begins to crumble.”—Kristin Hannah, #1 New York Times bestselling author of The Nightingale

“Richman deftly weaves fact and fiction to create…a carefully wrought story of love, of what the heart chooses to give up, and what it chooses to keep. Highly recommended to readers who enjoyed Kristen Hannah’s The Nightingale.”—New York Times bestselling author Karen White

“Richman fills her novel with vibrant details, much as Marthe decorated her apartment: always with care, craft, and a sharp eye.”—Publisher’s Weekly (Starred Review)

“The Velvet Hours is a love letter to the stories we tell and the stories we keep. It poses the idea that even the most well-intentioned life can hold guilt, and even the most aimless can find absolution. Imaginative, rich, and emotionally satisfying, The Velvet Hours is a treasure.”—Jewish Book Council

“Richman’s background in art is evident on every page of this opulent story of passion and transformation.”—NY Journal of Books

“A book as full of treasures as the Paris apartment that inspired it….A masterful mix of the glamour of the Belle Epoque and the shadows of impending war.”—New York Times bestselling author Lauren Willig
