Summary

The last time Valerie was in Paris, she was three years old, running from the Nazis, away from the only home she had ever known.  

Now as a young woman all alone in the world, Valerie must return to Paris, to the bookshop and her sole surviving relative, her grandfather Vincent, the only person who knows the truth about what happened to her parents. As she gets to know grumpy, taciturn Vincent again, she hears a tragic story of Nazi-occupied Paris, a doomed love affair, and a mother willing to sacrifice everything for her beloved daughter.  

Can Valerie and Vincent help each other to mend the wounds of the past? Valerie isn't after a fairytale ending, she only wants the truth. But what is the one devastating secret that Vincent is determined to keep from his granddaughter?

Livre agréable

Une histoire qui se tient et qui est bien documentée.
Des personnages assez attachants.
Une héroïne (Valérie), un peu mièvre mais ceci est dû en grande partie à la voix que lui a donné la narratrice.
Une histoire un peu à l’eau de rose mais qui rend le tout facile à écouter.
