'Enchanting. Reading Barreau is like having me-time with your best friend' NINA GEORGE, author ofTH LITTLE PARIS BOOKSHOP 'Heart-breaking . . . touching and magical until the very last page' ELLE *An ELLE Book of the Month* in December 2018 Dear Reader, Let me tell you a story . . .

My name is Julien Azoulay.

I am a writer of romance novels.

But last year, I stopped believing in love.

Right now, I feel like the unhappiest person on earth.

I am standing in the most famous cemetery in Paris, and believe it or not, something wonderful is going to happen . . .

But I'm getting ahead of myself. We should start, first of all, with my letters to my beloved Helen. I presume you know my wife Helen? Before she died, she made me promise to write her thirty-three letters - one for every year of her life.

So grab your coat, follow me down the narrow streets, past the cosy red bistro on Rue Gabrielle, all the way to Montmartre cemetery with its beautiful stone angels.

Together, let us read the love letters.

LOVE LETTERS FROM MONTMARTRE is an ode to love, Paris and empathy. A love letter to readers and to anyone who believes in the healing power of the written word.

A perfect gift for a Francophile, or just anyone else who is looking for a charming good time' Library Journal 'The book itself carries the heart of Paris within its pages' RT Book Reviews 'Enchanting . . . romantic' Booklist 'Rarely has the French metropolis been described in more poetic terms' Freundin 'Beaucoup de charme!'

NICOLAS BARREAU was born in Paris, the son of a French father and a German mother. He studied romance languages and literature at the Sorbonne and worked in a bookshop on the Rive Gauche in Paris but is far from an inexperienced bookworm. He has sold over four million copies of his books across Europe.
