The Paris Photo 
has been named by Kirkus Reviews 
as a "Best Book"


"A quietly powerful book . . . a thoughtful delineation of characters and a sensitive study of a culture and an era."

- Kirkus Reviews


 “Jane S. Gabin's words skip across the page with a deft touch and lightness in total contrast to the depth and imagery in this story . . . I was deeply moved."

- Susan McGregor, book reviewer,, March 7, 2019 -


"An intriguing glimpse into the relationships that can be formed now as the Holocaust reverberates into our own time. A single photograph of an American soldier in Paris led the author into a world of discoveries—and the reader will gladly follow her.”

— Mary Dingee Fillmore, author of An Address in Amsterdam

“Seldom does historical fiction provide the reader with such profound insights into the Holocaust’s impact. The Paris Photo is a moving and thoroughly researched account of modern history’s darkest hours.”

— Sharon Halperin, Director, NC Holocaust Speakers Bureau
