“…beautifully written and filled with vibrant scenes of Paris in its Jazz Age and today. Passing Love is a treat.”

“C’est magnifique! A delicious read, brimming with hope, love, and light.”

—Tayari Jones, author of An American Marriage, on Passing Love

“Lush, evocative and seductive. Only read Passing Love if you’re willing to give yourself over completely to the excitement of the jazz scene of post-WWII Paris, and a woman’s determination to find her place in the present-day City of Light.”

— Lalita Tademy, author of Cane River and Citizens Creek, on Passing Love

“Passing Love is everything a novel should be: a story as complex, multilayered and rich as a French pastry and just as deceptively simple…until you take a bite. Settle back, get comfy, and enjoy the journey Nicole, Malvina and Ruby (and atheir men) take you on through Post WWII and contemporary Paris.”
