Love Letters from Montmartre: A Novel
Julien Azouly, a well-known writer of romantic comedies, has lost his wife, Helene, at the age of thirty-three. Now he is alone with his young son. Before Helene died, Julien promised to write her thirty-three letters describing his life without her. At first, he is too distraught to write anything, but eventually he is able to put his feeling down on paper. Afterward, he deposits the letters in a secret compartment in her gravestone.
One day he discovers that a letter has disappeared. In its place, he finds a heart carved from stone. He doesn’t know what to make of this. Is it a sign from Helene that she is still with him? He so wants that to be the case, but it could be someone else who has discovered his secret hiding place at the cemetery. He must make a choice. Does he want to remain with the dead or rejoin the living? Only time will tell.
Love Letters from Montmartre is so well written that I could not put it down. The story and its characters are sweet, charming, and utterly irresistible. This heartwarming tale is all about love and rediscovering life, however hard that might be after the death of a loved one.
