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.

The heart of this story is in its characters - with all their quirks and flaws and desires and different paths in life. It takes true talent to weave together a story with so many different characters and make you care about each one, and Adria J. Cimino does just that.

The setting is gorgeous as well, not just because it takes place in Paris (with equally enjoyable jaunts to Colombia and Italy) but because the author makes a tiny slice of the City of Lights, the Rue des Martyrs, come alive.

And the common theme of searching for love, in all its forms, holds this story together and carries you through each scene.

There's something in this unique book for everyone - romance, action, literary description - and during the time you spend immersed in these characters' lives, you'll feel like you're right there with them. ( )
