GODS OF OUR TIME
A Paris Love Story
This emotional and powerful novel transports readers back to the robust energy and romantic lights of 1920s Paris. It chronicles the life of Sophie Masson, a painter and healer and woman far ahead of her time. It is a story of culture, passion and self-discovery as she meets Jake, an irresistible American journalist, sent to Paris to interview the great artists gathered in France -- Hemingway, Picasso, Fitzgerald and others. The way men think and react to love is put under a microscope in these pages. The quickening plot takes readers from the glittering spectacular of the champagne-filled parties of Paris and the romantic countryside of northern France to the dark banks of the Seine.
The book takes a penetrating look into a wide range of human emotions as everything Sophie and Jake believe in flies apart in the face of personal betrayal, international intrigue and the mysteries of underground Paris. They must risk everything -- including facing Sophie's own explosive past -- to discover whether love is possible.
