Paris Echo. While history speaks to informed walkers on every street in Paris, Faulks presents in this novel a specific connection between past and present in Paris. While Hannah is researching the oral histories of Parisian women who lived in the city during the Nazi occupation, she recalls her own experience in the city the last time she was there. She also gets to understand the echoes of the past through the eyes of her boarder, Tariq, who left his home in Morocco at age 19 and comes to Paris unaware of the connections between France and North Africa in the past. As both Hannah and Tariq narrate this novel, readers see convergence on many levels. Visit Paris with Faulks in this novel and hear all the echoes for yourself.
