Paris, 1871. Four young people will rewrite their destinies. Paris is in revolt. After months of siege at the hands of the Prussians, a wind of change is blowing through the city, bringing with it murmurs of a new revolution. Alone and poverty-stricken, sixteen-year-old Zephyrine is quickly lured in by the ideals of the city's radical new government, and she finds herself swept away by its promises of freedom, hope, equality and rights for women. But she is about to be seduced for a second time, following a fateful encounter with a young violinist. Anatole's passion for his music is soon swiftly matched only by his passion for this fierce and magnificent girl. He comes to believe in Zephyrine's new politics - but his friends are not so sure. Opera singer Marie and photographer Jules have desires of their own, and the harsh reality of life under the Commune is not quite as enticing for them as it seems to be for Anatole and Zephyrine. And when the violent reality of revolution comes crashing down at their feet, can they face the danger together - or will they be forced to choose where their hearts really lie?

MEDIA REVIEWS
...a thrilling, daring love story... Known for bringing neglected historical periods to life for her teenage audience, Syson's passionate account of the lives of four youths during those dramatic seventy-two days in 1871 is a riveting yarn. * BookSlut *
It's impressively thorough and informed by her own fair-minded feminism... The writing is powerful, the events terrifying. * The Bookbag *
This is an excellent history lesson, mixed with romance. * Bookwitch *
Romantic, fascinating and terrifying * Teach Secondary *
Thoroughly researched and beautifully written * The Guardian (Praise for A WORLD BETWEEN US) *
Syson brings history alive through careful detail * The Observer (Praise for A WORLD BETWEEN US) *
An impressive cross-over at many levels -- Peter Andrews * School Library Association *
This is historical fiction at its best: opening a window on the past and showing a moment that has echoes and resonances with our own troubled times * Awfully Big Reviews *
