As I’m editing my sixth novel, which has nothing to do with anything in the title above, I find myself asking, what is it that the three women who inspired my first five novels have in common with each other, if anything at all?


Martha de Florian was a Belle Epoque courtesan whose apartment in Paris was famously abandoned from 1940 when her grand-daughter fled Paris on the eve of the Nazi invasi...

“And it struck her then, right here in that space, how little is left when we are gone. How insignificant we all are. This was, she thought, both liberating and sad. In some ways, she realized now, she had taken her life so seriously in the past. How much did it matter?”
Ella Carey, From a Paris Balcony
