Travel Far, Through the Pages

Three books to take you away. Far Away.

The Imperfects by Amy Meyerson

Destination: Philadelphia, Los Angeles, and Vienna, Austria

Facing personal struggles and resentments all around, The Miller family reluctantly gathers after the death of their matriarch, Helen. When they uncover a truly priceless inheritance—the Florentine Diamond, a 137-carat yellow gemstone that went missing from the Austrian Empire a century ago—they also discover a past more tragic and powerful than they ever could have imagined. Each family member, their connections to each other, and their heritage will be transformed through the publicity of their discovery and investigation into whether they are the rightful heirs. 

Barcelona Days by Daniel Riley

Destination: Barcelona, Spain 

An engaged couple shares the details of their three romantic "free passes" on the last night of their romantic Barcelona vacation. Ready to return home and begin their life together, the couple is stranded indefinitely due to an erupting Icelandic volcano grounding all flights in and out of Europe. Over the course of three days, the couple will meet two new friends, also vacationing Americans with problems they'd hoped to leave behind in Barcelona, further testing the boundaries or their relationship. 

The Paris Hours by Alex George

Destination: Paris, France

Marcel Proust’s maid has a secret: when she was asked to burn her employer’s notebooks, she saved one for herself…and now it’s made its way into Ernest Hemingway’s hands. In 1927, Paris teems with artists, writers, and musicians, but among the creative class and famous citizens, four regular people (a maid, a refugee, an artist, and a journalist) are each searching for something they’ve lost. Told over the course of a single day, this quartet of “ordinary” people shows how we each possess our own extraordinary stories.
