When people on Paris's bustling streets look at Michael Roth, they see little more than a Parisian student, a quietly spoken young man with a book under his arm, handsome but guarded. What they do not realize is that he is carrying a painful secret, one that he cannot even reveal to the woman he loves.

For Michael is no ordinary Frenchman but a German. He has been sent to Paris to assist the Nazis in dealing with Resistance fighters. Desperate to escape his daily life, he steals into the world of the oppressed Parisians, and into the path of Chantal. But as Michael falls for the bookseller's beautiful daughter, he discovers that a person's past always catches up with them. Soon he will be forced to make the ultimate sacrifice and choose between his country, his life and his destiny.

Daring, romantic and of exceptional quality, April in Paris is an extraordinary love story which will stay with you long after its final pages.

MEDIA REVIEWS
'An incredible work. Casablanca and The English Patient come to mind' * Gala *
'It reads like Ken Follett and is reminiscent of Schlink's The Reader' * brigitte - Kultur & Unterhaltung *
'This haunting tale of doomed love between the young, disillusioned German soldier and the feisty Chantal will find a happy audience' * She Magazine *
'A cross between Ken Follett and Bernard Schlink's The Reader...The narrative is exhilarating. Wallner expertly heightens the pace as you reach the tear-jerking finale. April in Paris is a book to share with friends: a love story for men, who don't usually cry' * Brigitte - Kultur & Unterhaltung, Germany *
'Both surreal and deeply arresting' * The Age *
'Compelling' * Sydney Morning Herald *
'Original and poignant, with some very good twists' * Australian Women's Weekly *
