‘Enchanting. Reading Barreau is like having me-time with your best friend’ NINA GEORGE, author of The Little Paris Bookshop ‘Heart-breaking . . . touching and magical until the very last page‘ ELLE Julien Azoulay is famous around the world for his beautiful romance novels. But last year, he stopped believing in love. When his beloved wife Hélène died, leaving him alone to raise his young son, Julien lost his faith in the happier side of life – and with it his ability to write.
But Hélène was clever. Before she died, she made Julien promise to write her one letter for each year of her life . . . and now, in this moment, in the most famous cemetery in Paris, Julien stands with his painful first letter in his hand. Here, even though Julien wouldn’t believe it, something wonderful is going to happen . . .
Come with us down the narrow streets, past the cosy red bistro on Rue Gabrielle, all the way to Montmartre cemetery with its beautiful stone angels, and discover the truth we all hope to find: that love is real, that miracles can happen and – most of all – that it’s never too late to rediscover your dreams. LOVE LETTERS FROM MONTMARTRE is an ode to love, Paris and friendship. A love letter to readers and to anyone who believes in the healing power of the written word **An ELLE Book of the Month**
