Freezing rain coming down this morning so our usual Thursday walk was cancelled. That gave me the chance do finish the Rutherfurd "Paris" novel that I have been reading for the last couple of weeks. It is just over 800 pages long so it was not a quick read but it was enjoyable. The enjoyment was enhanced by the fact that my French speaking partner, Fleur-Ange, and I made two trips to Paris a few of years ago so the scenes in the book were a bit more  real than they would have been if I had not had those visits. That being said, anyone who enjoys historical novels would probably enjoy this book as Rutherfurd is an excellent writer who does a lot of research for his books.
