The Siren of Paris PDF ePub eBook

Books Info:

The Siren of Paris free pdf 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.
