The Little Paris Bookshop by Nina GeorgeThe Little Paris Bookshop. The only person he is unable to cure, it seems, is himself. He has nursed a broken heart ever since the night, twenty-one years ago, when the love of his life fled Paris, leaving behind a handwritten letter that he has never dared read. His memories and his love have been gathering dust — until now. The arrival of an enigmatic new neighbour in his eccentric apartment building on Rue Montagnard inspires Jean to unlock his heart, unmoor the floating bookshop and set off for Provence, in search of the past and his beloved. Monsieur Perdu has been grieving for the love of his life, Manon, for 21 years since she left him out of the blue. He runs a bookshop on a barge on the river Seine in Paris called the "Literacy Apothecary".
