TLC Book Tours: The Race for Paris

This historical novel is quite a departure for author Meg Waite Clayton, and it was a highly successful one for this reader. The Race for Paris is set in WWII, before the liberation of Paris by the Allied forces. The novel traces the journey of two female journalists - photographer Olivia and reporter Jane - who go AWOL from the press corps in order to reach Paris with the Allies and capture the first moments of liberation to preserve for posterity, enlisting the aid of Fletcher, a British military photographer who shepherd’s them through the French countryside toward the city.
