Martha in Paris

Margery Sharp


Martha is a most unlikely heroine, rather lumpish and stolid. She is a serious artist, who has the good fortune to be a beneficiary of financial support to study in Paris. She attracts the attention of a young Englishman who is assigned to the Paris branch of an English bank. Aside from her nationality, it is difficult to understand what the attraction is, but that is enough to satisfy his rather formidable mother. On Martha’s side, it is the hot bath in his apartment that is the draw.

Margery Sharp as at her best in this unlikely tale of a relationship between a love-struck young man and a single-minded, serious artist in the romantic city of Paris.
