...for the diehard historical fiction fans
Hold onto your hats, we have an 800 page(get it on your favorite ereader) fictional look at Paris that starts in 1260 with the building of Notre Dame Cathedral and finishes in 1968 with the student revolts. The story follows several families through the years - the LeSourds who are revolutionarys, the Blanchards middle class merchants, the Gascons skilled labourers and the deCynges who are aristocrats. In what I guess is typical for European society, they never change class - aristocrats from the 13th century are still aristocrats in WWII, etc.
