A missing person, a grieving family, and a half-finished manuscript set in Paris—what could be a more delectable premise for a mystery? When her husband Robert disappears, Leah takes their daughters to search for him in Paris, where they are suddenly made proprietors of an English-language bookstore. They trace the literary paths of Parisian classics—even Madeline and The Red Balloon—hoping that clues to Robert will arise. But Leah finds that she may not be ready for what solving this mystery might do to her family—or to the Paris she thought she knew.
"A beautifully drawn portrait of a woman interrupted, set amid the exquisite magic of Paris, where life frequently imitates art as the ghosts of the past linger just out of sight."—Publishers Weekly (starred review)
