9780983966715: The Siren of Paris

Marc Tolbert upon his death in 1967 is trapped in a seemingly eternal limbo, surrounded by the company of other ghost’s of the unknown dead from World War Two. A single question of a German Army Officer asked him in 1940 haunts him now in death as it did in his life. What Siren of Paris called him into this hellish war? To find his release he must now witness his life during the war from the great beyond. The reader is transported to World War II-era France. In 1939, 20-year-old Marc Tolbert has reached a turning point in his life. He abandons his plans of going to medical school to study art in Paris, which is the place of his birth. As he boards the S.S. Normandie to cross to France, he chooses to ignore signs that Europe -- along with the rest of the world -- is on the brink of an especially devastating war. Broken hearted over a fail relationship in the States, with the hope that Paris will receive him, this one small delicious sin of denial will end up costing Marc nearly everything including the peace of his soul. The Siren of Paris is a unique allegorical historical story that blends in spiritual journey of the soul inspired by the Egyptian Book of the Dead. It includes many actual historical figures and events, including Ambassador Bullitt, Sumner Wells, Sylvia Beach, Jacques Lusseyran, the Angel of Saint-Nazaire Joan Rodes, the sinking of the RMS Lancastria and the liberation of Buchenwald. This is a story of a man seeking release from a past that never goes away, delievered in deceptively simple prose that guides the reader through a tapestry of mythic images, symbols and signs drawn from Jungian Depth Psychology that has haunted more than a few readers with the horrors of war.

About the Author :

In writing his first novel, The Siren of Paris, David LeRoy drew upon his longtime interest in philosophy, the visual arts, myth, storytelling, psychology, and Ocean Liner travel. During a visit to France to study art in the fall of 2012, LeRoy became intrigued by the French Resistance, particularly when his research revealed the role of Americans in the Resistance, as well as the limited means of escape from Europe as the war escalated. LeRoy holds a bachelor of arts in philosophy and religion.

Review :

"The author shows us how a person can be completely changed from this experience, how in a few short years, a few short moments, or even a split second, everything can become drastically different.  This novel brought tears to my eyes and left me with a more enlightened heart..." Boyu Huang AllBooks Review

"I've just finished reading Siren of Paris by David LeRoy and it's a story that will stay with me for a while. It has a complex, well developed plotline and presents the story in a tantalising way. I've read quite a few books set during the Second World War... this one especially gripped me." Dianne Ascroft Ascroft eh?

The soul of this book is found in LeRoy’s analysis of human nature through the main character. There really is nothing like a life-or-death situation that can split human nature so cleanly and show us what being human really means. The author shows us how a person can be completely changed from this experience, how in a few short years, in a few short moments, or even in a split second, everything can become drastically different. This book is suited for those with a love for history and those with a love for fiction alike. This novel brought tears to my eyes and left me with a more enlightened heart, so it is with absolute pleasure that I say The Siren of Paris is highly recommended by Boyu Huang, Allbooks Review Int.
