The Emperor of Paris, Paperback / softback Book

The Emperor of Paris Paperback / softback

Paperback / softback

Description

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 an impoverished painter, a jaded bookseller, and a book of fairytales, lost and found... Evocative, romantic, and wise, this is a magical novel about the power of stories - to help us find enchantment, freedom, and sometimes even love.
