A Harlequin Romance cloaked in a philosophical treatise on the power of books to heal emotional bruises. The men in the book are Peter Pans refusing to grow up. The only compelling voice is that of Perdu's lost love Manon who earned this book an additional star with quotable musings on life and life as depicted in books.

I couldn't finish this book. It started out great. I liked the idea of a bookseller matching books to customers. But it quickly veered off that topic to the bookseller's long lost love which wasn't so interesting to me.

First Book of the Year!

My friend Kelli read this on an eight-hour flight home and she texts me saying I would love it and she is so right. This author is new to me and after this I am a big fan! Monsieur Perdu owns a floating bookstore aboard a barge located on the Seine. With his bookstore he can prescribe just the perfect book to dispel someone's fears, problems, and social anxieties. That is with one exception himself. Twenty-one years earlier the love of his life left him and left him only a letter, which he never read because he came across it twenty-one years later and has lived with his heartbreak ever since. He finally reads the long-lost letter and sets sail for the south of France with a young, famous author on board, who is hiding from his fame and looking for inspiration for his next book. Then once on their travels they pick up an Italian chef. The journey these men partake in is described as both internal and external experience, sometimes together, sometimes apart. Believe me you will be touched by their journey.

This novel is enchanting, warm, and filled with memorable characters. There are so many beautiful literary quotes in this book anyone who loves to read will be delighted by it, not to mention the wonderful quotes about the power of reading. Further the French countryside is alive and beautiful as rendered by George. She is a wonderful wordsmith. I can see why my friend read this in eight hours it draws you in and holds you there and the pictures that are drawn with this tale will stay with me for a lifetime. Highly recommended and will read again.

This was not what i was expecting.

Having read Nina's previous two books and totally loved them, i just grabbed this with a quick glance at the cover art and title and set about reading it thinking i was going to have a similarly uplifting story about dreams.   Well that thought soon got put out to pasture.

Instead, we are taken into the intensive care ward of a coma hospital, and the dreams are those that people living in comas may, or may not, have.

Which does sound a little grim, but it turned out just as good, but in a rather different way, as Nina's last two books: so well worth reading, all three of them.

And i already have Nina's next book, The Little French Village of Book Lovers — Nina George, which i look forward to diving into in the not too distant future.

Bye for now.
