Editorial Reviews

Amy Padgett
"A Garden in Paris is, on the one hand, a quick, light, entertaining read about a woman seeking the life she thought she had walked away from. On the other hand, for those looking for more depth, this book is woven-through with simple truths about honesty and friendship, faith and trust, and learning to be true to who you are and who you want to be. This book is listed a Christian romance, but could easily be enjoyed even by those who don't profess a personal faith. I genuinely enjoyed reading A Garden in Paris and will make a point of seeking out more books by Stephanie Grace Whitson."
"A Garden in Paris by Stephanie Grace Whitson is a poignant novel of acceptance and reconciliation.... [It] is a well-written novel that will keep you turning the pages and wanting more. It is, so far, my favorite 2005 Christian novel. The manner in which Whitson manages to incorporate faith into the story is ingenuous. I was thrilled to learn that there is a sequel to A Garden in Paris."
Christian Book Previews
"A crazy quilt of points of view, this tale pieces together both first and third person perspectives as each of the characters share their parts of the story, past and present. The result is a heartwarming story with several unexpected twists. Detailed and realistic, the various characters and their relationships drive the plot with their actions. Recommended for women, especially mothers."
Inspirational Romance
"Readers will be taken on a rollercoaster ride of emotions with this story. I highly recommend Ms. Whitson's latest effort."
Love Romances
"A Garden in Paris is a vivid novel of one woman's journey to find herself....Ms. Whitson captures Mary's state of mind in a unique blend of first and third person voices. Because of this, readers experience refreshing views of Mary as well as the other main characters, giving us insight into what makes them tick. Ms. Whitson presents a beautiful look into the sights, sounds and smells of Paris. Readers live and breathe the landscape through Mary's eyes and memories....

This book ends with many questions that will hopefully be answered in A Hilltop in Tuscany, the sequel to A Garden in Paris. This reviewer anxiously awaits the next installment in Mary's journey."

Road to Romance
"A wonderful excursion through the beauty of Paris. The deep characterizations help the reader come to care for the characters..."
Romance Junkies
"Whitson has another best-seller on her hands, one which I recommend to lovers of inspirational fiction."
Romantic Times
"From the first paragraph, Whitson’s deft hand with characterization pulls emotions from the reader like a concert violinist draws notes from the strings. This one is a keeper for your ‘favorites’ bookshelf."

"From the first paragraph, Whitson’s deft hand with characterization pulls emotions from the reader like a concert violinist draws notes from the strings. This one is a keeper for your ‘favorites’ bookshelf."
Publishers Weekly
In this enjoyable story, Whitson, the author of a dozen novels, sets out to show that it is never too late for someone to start over. Widow Mary Elisabeth McKibbin Davis is 50 years old, unsure about who she is, and at odds with her adult daughter, Liz. Toying with suicide, Mary instead writes a letter to her first love of 30 years ago, the dashing Frenchman Jean-Marc David, letting him know she'll be in their special garden in Paris on Christmas Eve. Taking as her motto It is never too late to be what you might have been, Mary leaves Nebraska for France to begin revisiting her past and re-creating her life. Liz rather quickly realizes she needs to reconcile with her mother, and, with he r agreeable fiancE, Jeffrey Scott, she chases after Mary. While in Paris, Mary searches for love, faith and her true self, while Liz will have to grapple with a family secret, adeptly concealed until late in the book in a surprising plot twist. Multiple points of view are sometimes a little cumbersome, and there is a bit of theology tossed in about God and accidents that will be problematic for some. However, appealing descriptions, faith renewals and conversions, and travelogueish details about Paris make this a pleasant read for an evangelical Christian audience. (Apr.)

    This book really surpried me. I had never heard of the author before, didn't really look like me type of book, but I gave it a try. It really did grab me in the first chapter. The autho're writing style is very amazing and fluent and enjoyable to read. The settings are amazing and the characters well developed. The story moves quickly and is resolved pretty well. It leaves you with mixed emotions, but there is a sequel so don't be disappointed.

    Appeals to those ladies who who started their family early and fears she may have missed her 'window of opportunity' to fulfill her own plans and dreams. Rekindled the belief in the me God created and the awaiting possibilites.
