    Thomas Pichon has dreams of moving to Paris to study medicine, but his parents, facing financial troubles, have decided that his life should move in a different direction, and that he should enter the priesthood Unwilling to spend his life in the way his parents have dictated, Pichon flees from his home to pursue his dreams, only to find that life in the City of Lights won t unfold as he predicted.Before reading Thomas A Secret Life, I read its sequel, The Maze While the latter served very well as a stand alone novel, reading its prequel gave me greater insight into the lives of both Thomas and Helene To think of Thomas, who weaves so many lies and is so frequently in the company of women other than his wife, as a priest almost sent me into hysterics.As with The Maze, this novel is well written, with strong characters that you will genuinely become interested in For lovers of historical fiction, this will not disappoint.
