Reviews

"In her quietly elegant 11th novel, the bestselling author of Sarah's Key again explores the idea of home as both sanctuary and embodiment of history... [Rose's] letters, poetic and honest, reveal a world soon to be destroyed by progress. A mesmerizing look at how the homes and neighborhoods we occupy hold not only our memories but our secrets as well." --People (3 out of 4 stars)"De Rosnay's delicacy and the flavor of her beloved Paris are everywhere in this brief but memorable book. Replete with treats, particularly for Paris-lovers--indeed for anyone wedded to a special place." --Kirkus (starred review)"Those who enjoyed Sarah's Key will recognize de Rosnay's love for her native France and appreciate the poignancy and tenacity of her characters." --Booklist"The core of Paris by a phenomenal novelist." --Elle (France)"Fraught with drama, as the Sarah's Key author aims to create an immersive experience in a hugely transformative period in Paris...when the city was torn between modernity and tradition. In Rose, one gets the clear sense of a woman losing her place in a changing world." --Publishers Weekly"Whether you approve of Baron Haussmann's modernization of the French capital or not, Tatiana de Rosnay's new book, The House I Loved, is sure to enthrall those who want to learn more about this fascinating period in history." --Out and About In Paris

In this audio edition of de Rosnay's novel-set during the 1860s and written in the form of letters from widow Rose Bazelet to her deceased husband, Armand-Kate Reading's narration transports listeners to the streets of Paris. At the order of Emperor Napoleon III, neighborhoods are being razed and homes destroyed to make way for renovations and construction. Among the residences marked for demolition is the house that Rose shared with her husband. But Rose will fight to save her home-and in the process come to terms with the past. De Rosnay's prose is enhanced by Reading's stellar narration; she reads with a robust English accent, sprinkling her performance with almost flawless French pronunciations. A St. Martin's hardcover.
