The Girl in the Green dress is a climactic story of compassion, sacrifice, loyalty, and intrigue, signified by an enduring long distance strand of love between two people. Jeff, an American writer in Paris, seeking a guide during his initial visit to Paris, is introduced to Renee, a young lady practically born into serfdom, who, with the help of an aging father, moves to Paris where she educates herself to the point of sophistication in the art and political realm of one of the most fascinating cities in the world. Spurned in a previous relationship by the playboy son of a wealthy participant in the central produce market, Renee traveled weekly there with her father, all the way from the south of France so that her father could seek out a living for his wife and daughter. With a little help from friends, Renee is able find a place to stay, a job, and the beginning of a decent education over and above what her father was able to provide. By the time Jeff's leave of absence is over from his newspaper job in Illinois, the two have become very fond of each other and the distance apart actually expands their love for one another. However, the planned visit to Illinois by Renee fails to materialize because of her mother's death and soon after, her father becomes ill. Days, weeks, and months go by, but Renee's loyalty to her father leaves them both wondering if there is any hope. The patter between the two and their two friends is clever and refreshing and with the delightful descriptions of Parisian history, the story is a delicacy for the romantic at heart and food for the mind of the astute. The passion and suspense will tear at your heartstrings.
