At the famous Patisserie Clermont in Paris, 1909, a chance encounter with the owner’s daughter has given one young man a glimpse into a life he never knew existed: of sweet cream and melted chocolate, golden caramel and powdered sugar, of pastry light as air. But it is not just the art of confectionery that holds him captive, and soon a forbidden love affair begins. Almost eighty years later, an academic discovers a hidden photograph of her grandfather as a young man with two people she has never seen before. Scrawled on the back of the picture are the words ‘Forgive me’. Unable to resist the mystery behind it, she begins to unravel the story of two star-crossed lovers and one irrevocable betrayal.
I really loved the alternating narrative! This beautiful book can be described as delicious, lovely, and perfect. This book makes me want to curl up and take a mind journey to Paris and eat all the scrumptious sweets. I loved the author’s descriptions of everything and how much you are pulled into the world she has created. The plot was simply done but not in a bad way. it makes it for a perfect, cozy, rainy day read. I truly loved this book! 5 stars from me Laura. Thank you NetGalley for sending me this book in exchange for my honest review.
