LoveReading View on 13 rue Therese

September 2011 eBook of the Month.
A magical and wonderfully inventive story about passion. An American in Paris falls in love with two women, one of whom he can only imagine, in this wonderful debut.  A box full of century-old artifacts begins the love affair but why were they so conveniently put on his desk to find?

It unlocks a dramatic and romantic story of a French woman who lived in Paris through both world wars and a present day story runs with it.  The letters, jottings, photos etc are reproduced throughout the novel.

13 rue Therese Synopsis

Trevor begins to piece together the story of Louise's life: her love for a cousin who died in the war, her marriage to a man who works for her father, and her attraction to a neighbour in her building at 13 rue Therese. As he becomes enamored with the charming, feisty Louise of his imagination, he notices another alluring Frenchwoman, his clerk Josianne, who planted the mysterious box in his office, and with whom he decides he is falling in love.
