Welcome to the Official Website for Edward Rutherfurd

The paperback edition of Paris has been published in the UK, Ireland, Australia, New Zealand, South Africa, Europe (English Language) and other 'open market' territories. If you are thinking of a visit to Paris,  I personally love September and October.

Paris : City of love. City of revolution.  This thrilling and romantic story opens in La Belle Époque, the golden, hedonistic age of peace and joie de vivre. Moving back and forth in time across centuries, the story unfolds through intimate and vivid tales of self-discovery, divided loyalty, passion, and long-kept secrets both fictional and true, set against the backdrop of the city - from the summit of Montmartre to the gothic towers of Notre Dame to the grand boulevards of Saint-Germain, from the medieval world of saints and scholars to the modern French ideals of liberté, égalité, fraternitéRead More and Purchase



Did You Know?
William the Conqueror’s half-brother and trusted companion Odo, became Bishop of Bayeux. Odo amassed a huge fortune through extortion and robbery. He was also a notable warrior, and he probably commissioned the famous Bayeux Tapestry where he is shown encouraging his brother's troops with a battle club. On separate occasions Odo was found guilty of defrauding the crown and planning a military expedition in Italy for unknown reasons - possibly to make himself Pope. He spent five years in prison for his transgressions, but he still remained a bishop!
