Thank you so much to for giving me a copy of Nicolas Barreau’s Love Letters from Montmarte in exchange for an honest review via Edelweiss.
Set in the city of love, Paris, we witness Julien Azoulay’s journey on overcoming his beloved wife’s death. Before his wife died of cancer, she let him promise to write her 33 letters after her death. 6 months after her death, Julien finally gets to work on the first letter of 33 letters. Unbeknownst to him, this would lead to a journey that would forever change is life.
Love Letters from Montmarte was a short and sweet read, filled with beautiful descriptions of Paris. We see and feel Julien’s devastation and love over his wife, Helene, who had passed away at such a young age. We see a widowed man trying to live not for the sake of himself but for the promise he told his wife. We are introduced to characters with such vivid personalities.
I loved everything about this book, and the story behind the conception of the whole thing just sealed my love for it. This book makes us hope of love, hope that there is so much more than the death of a loved one. They will never just be a memory. They will become our guardian angels, they will always be alive and come back to us in any shape or form.
Would 100% recommend this wonderfully written book to everyone.
