Like his father before him, Octavio runs the Notre-Dame bakery, and knows the secret recipe for the perfect Parisian baguette. But, also like his father, Octavio has never mastered the art of reading and his only knowledge of the world beyond the bakery door comes from his own imagination. Just a few streets away, Isabeau works out of sight in the basement of the Louvre, trying to forget her disfigured beauty by losing herself in the paintings she restores and the stories she reads. The two might never have met, but for a curious chain of coincidences involving a mysterious traveller, an impoverished painter, a jaded bookseller, and a book of fairytales, lost and found . . .

Nice read2016年11月3日 - 已在美国亚马逊上发表
I enjoyed it but found it hard to stay focused, perhaps because it goes from place to place and scene to scene.

Good writing, but story is very fragmented -- until the end, when all is made clear & connections are revealed. Enjoyed it.

I found the narrative a bit confusing. Pay attention. It is a sweet story.
A great read!2013年4月12日 - 已在美国亚马逊上发表
Our book club choice this month. I love the writing and the story line. It flips back and forth with many characters but they all seem to blend together! Not quite finished reading it yet but can't wait to see how it all pans out!!!!!!!!!!!
