Tatiana de Rosnay, author of Sarah's Key, explores a forgotten world of Paris, love, and memory. Set in the 1860s and told through a series of letters, this story chronicles the life of Rose Bazelet, a widow whose beloved house is doomed to destruction by the rampaging Prefect and the modernization of Paris. For Rose, the house embodies her life -- her marriage, her love and passion, her sorrows and tragedies, her children -- and she will not part with it. A wonderful historical read, this novel presents a fresh perspective on progress and Paris, delving into long-forgotten hurts in the human experience.
