Tatiana de Rosnay's novel is skillfully narrated by the delightful Kate Reading. It is 1860s Paris, and this is the story of a well-loved family home located on the charming rue Childebert. Our guide through the history of the house is Rose Bazelet, widow of Armand, as she writes a long letter of farewell to him. The emperor has great plans to modernize Paris. The Rue Childebert is to be swept away to make room for the grand Boulevard Saint-Germain, and Rose is determined to never abandon the house that has meant so much to her and her family. Reading's subtle tones and refined accents are pitch-perfect as Rose reveals her most cherished moments and her deepest secrets. K.O. © AudioFile 2012, Portland, Maine [Published: FEBRUARY 2012]
