About the Event
About the Book and AuthorMichelle Gable is the international bestselling author of The Paris Apartment, inspired by the true discovery of an apartment left vacant for over 70 years, frozen in time. This fantastic debut novel has been critically acclaimed by multiple publications, including the San Diego Union Tribune. Her second novel, I'll See You in Paris, is anxiously awaited and due out Spring 2016.
Michelle attended the College of William & Mary and majored in accounting. In her opinion, "Accounting is a beautiful thing, this zero-sum math. A debit here, a credit there. Everything balances. You always know when you have it right. Writing can be like this too. Sometimes a story comes together from nowhere, the plot holes miraculously filled." She currently works in FP&A and Investor Relations at a publicicly-traded software company, living in San Diego with her husband and children. Despite her busy day to day life, she always makes time to write, whether it's at 5 in the morning or 11 at night. I'll See You in Paris winds together the lives of three women born generations apart, but who face similar struggles of love and heartbreak. After losing her fiancé in the Vietnam War, nineteen-year-old Laurel Haley takes a job in England, hoping the distance will mend her shattered heart. Laurel expects the pain might lessen but does not foresee the beguiling man she meets or that they’ll go to Paris, where the city’s magic will take over and alter everything Laurel believes about love. Thirty years later, Laurel’s daughter Annie is newly engaged and an old question resurfaces: who is Annie’s father and what happened to him? Laurel has always been vague about the details and Annie’s told herself it doesn’t matter. But with her impending marriage, Annie has to know everything. Why won’t Laurel tell her the truth? The key to unlocking Laurel’s secrets starts with a mysterious book about an infamous woman known as the Duchess of Marlborough. Annie’s quest to understand the Duchess, and therefore her own history, takes her from a charming hamlet in the English countryside, to a decaying estate kept behind barbed wire, and ultimately to Paris where answers will be found at last.
