Reviews

"Beautifully written and filled with vibrant scenes of Paris in its Jazz age and today, Passing Love is a treat."--People Magazine
"It's midnight in Paris, now and in the mid-20th century, in Luckett's second novel. In this dreamy and lyrical paean to all things French. . . Luckett weaves a fascinating portrait of women of color who defy family and tradition to follow love and chase success. . . . In the end, it's the soulful, headstrong, romantic Ruby whose passion resonates in this story of discovery and acceptance."--Publishers Weekly
"C'est magnifique! A delicious read, brimming with hope, love, and light."--Tayari Jones, author of Silver Sparrow
"A fierce, beautiful novel . . . a heroine for the ages . . . Luckett is a writer to watch and admire."--ZZ Packer, O Magazine, 2007
"Luckett's loving descriptions of Paris evoke the sights, smells and sounds of the City of Light. Nicole's story is one with which any woman, regardless of age or skin color, can relate, but Ruby's tale and the author's meticulous research into the Paris of the period following WWII is the real star of this novel. . . . Well written and engaging, a celebration of life after 50."--Kirkus Reviews
"Luckett has written our Paris dreams come true--between two lives and two generations, this story delivers the romance and the heartbreak of all that the City of Lights has to offer. You will escape with this novel and question or embrace your own unlived lives."--Heidi W. Durrow, author of The Girl Who Fell From the Sky
"Lush, evocative and seductive. Only read Passing Love if you're willing to give yourself over completely to the excitement of the jazz scene of post-WWII Paris, and a woman's determination to find her place in the present-day City of Light."--Lalita Tademy, author of Cane River and Red River
