Paris, Rue Des Martyrs by Adria J. Cimino; Velvet Morning Press

Paris, Rue Des Martyrs, by Adria J. Cimino, is the story of a group of people who seemingly have no connection to one another. Skillfully the author reveals otherwise. There are four protagonists which include a son looking for answers about his birth mother, a woman who feels unloved, a betrayed young woman and an aging actor. Each chapter is in a different voice which adds depth to the novel. Within each character’s story there are secondary characters who are also important to the novel. Each character is well developed and faces very real issues. They are complex, flawed and sometimes make mistakes, but this doesn’t stop them from seeking what they want. They take chances and the results are varied. It is easy for the reader to establish a connection with them.

This is a work of literary fiction and it is beautifully written. Highly recommended.

I received this book for free through LibraryThing’s Member Giveaway and I give this review of my own free will.
