By the best-selling author of Hidden in Paris, now in 10 languages.
In this fast-paced, gripping saga, Cassie, still reeling from heartbreak, roams through Paris in search for answers on her family's past and its impact on who she has become. When she meets an estranged elderly aunt more than willing to exposes secrets that have created riffs across generations, Cassie must dare to confront the truth if she is to set herself free. From an ancient city in the Ottoman Empire, to Paris in the Roaring Twenties, to a desperate escape from Nazi annihilation, to modern day Paris, The Curator of Broken Things is a family-saga trilogy that takes place over a century. The novel weaves multiple narrative threads, each revealing new sides of the story until three generations of secrets are revealed that might bring a family together or tear it apart.
The first reviews are in!
Epic Tale I could not stop reading. "Amazing story spanning from 1902 to 2013 of generations that we carry with us, even when we don't know our family history. I was taken aback at the similarities of history repeating itself. I compare this epic story to another of my all time best novels "Palmtrees In The Snow" which was made into a 4 hour movie. I hope this trilogy follows in movie form."
This story has it all. "This was the most exciting read I've had in a long time! (and I read about a book a week) But in the case of this trilogy, I could not put it down, and read all three in about 5 days. I was entertained, enlightened and totally consumed."
Great Trilogy. "Each book was better than the last. Book 1 set the story up, book 2 gave us some twists and turns and book 3 wrapped it up with a bang. I will look for more from this writer."
Seriously Good Book. "This author has a talent for writing but evidently a talent for research as well. The story takes place over generations from the Ottoman Empire of the early 1900s to modern day France. Very well done!"
