He bundled me up as if we were heading for the North Pole top-heavy fur cap, caked with grime, but that kept me warm. No doubt it had belonged, in other times, to a friend of the Baronne de Vresse or such like. When we stepped outside, the cold reached out to envelop me in an icy embrace. It made me gasp with surprise. I could not see a thing, the street was too obscure.

Paris, France: 1860's. Hundreds of houses are being razed, whole neighborhoods reduced to ashes

Attempting to overcome the loneliness of her daily life, she begins to write letters to Armand, her late husband. And as Rose delves into her memories, she reveals the secrets held within the walls of her beloved house.Praise for A Secret Kept: 'That rare thing - a hugely accomplished, compelling, compulsively readable novel' Douglas Kennedy'A wholly captivating novel. A triumphant follow-up to the bestselling Sarah's Key' Easy Living 'A sumptuous dark story... it's the suspense that keeps you truly hooked' Stylist
It starts off slowly, and I TOLD MYSELF I would not like reading a book in total letter format.
But as I consumed the pages later on, I could not put it down.The secrets the reader was waiting for, were far beyond my expectations. Her beloved house was not so beloved, after all, and she knew it was her fault.
Adding Alexdrine to the destruction made it more deplorable, but reminds us of how strong headed, lonely women can be and the lengths they may go to.
I was eager to read de Rosnay's new book and was hugely disappointed with it. For me it is a self-indulgent mess. I get that she loves the city of Paris, and I think the subject of Haussmann's vision of a new Paris would make for a good historical fiction read. "The House I Loved" does not satisfy. The character of Rose is annoying. She's a woman of means who can't really live a life of abundance despite her many privileges and the support of friends. The writing style is very choppy going from prose to letters. I've followed deRosnay's career and enjoyed "Sarah's Key" enough to make it a book group selection. I hope that with book four she gets back on track. Bring us a well-developed plot peopled with characters we can believe in.
I think you should be an older person (over 65) to understand and enjoy this story about an old lady who is losing her home.

The story takes place in Paris. The lady's house is going to be torn down to make way for improvements in the city. She remembers when she moved into the house and tells about all the significant events that occurred in that house during her life time, including the loss of her husband.

She is now old and all but alone. She is hiding in the basement to avoid being removed from her house. It is an emotional story and very sad. As I said, older readers reaching the end of their lives will most appreciate this.
Even though I could not understand the thinking of the main character, the story held my interest. It was an interesting time, historically. I wish there had been more information on the big changes in Paris at that time.
This is a really nice novel. I am enjoying it very much - a look back at the narrator's life through letters to her deceased husband - as her circumstances are changing.
This book was a huge disappointment after the incomparable SARAH'S KEY and even after the less than stellar A SECRET KEPT. There is no doubt the author has a beautiful writing style and can wax lyrical at will. However, this story was boring, boring, boring. Rose Bazelet is a witness to Napoleon III's reorganization of Paris. Her home is one of the ones scheduled for demolition to make way for a wide and modern boulevard. Rose is a stubborn woman and refuses to leave her home. Her memories, the life she loved, are all here. Now, with her husband and son gone and being estranged from her daughter, she sees no reason to leave the house she loves.

While she waits for the demolition team to come, she writes a long letter to her husband telling him what she is doing and why she is doing it. This drags on for what seems an endless amount of time. Perhaps the story would have been more riveting had it been a short story because the tedium of waiting for the crew to come and wreck the house was tiresome. Oh, we do get a few glimpses (not enough) of what life was like in Paris before this affront to its citizens. We see the neighborhood; meet the shop owners, the friends of Rose, and one rather interesting homeless man. But I never felt we were privy to any street scene that was uniquely Paris. I never got a feel of overwhelming local color, only the musings of a woman who refuses to leave the home she shared with her now dead husband. And so she continues to write....and write....and write.....until the final not-so-unexpected page.

There is a bit of melodrama, a secret Rose never shared with her husband, that she now puts to paper. The whole incident seems so out of place as if an editor had said, "this needs something unexpected."

The best thing about this book was the exquisite cover. Unfortunately, since I bought this on Kindle, I will just have to be content with viewing the cover on amazon.
Not Sarah's Key.
I was not impressed with the story line. Waited and kept readying hoping for more.
Like so often, the "house" is simply the walls that witness life and all its trials and tribulations. Well, this is one woman's account of love, loss, sadness, joy and daily life. And it is all written against the backdrop of the modernization of Paris, a process that played a key role in turning the city into what it is today.

Tatiana de Rosnay has a knack for capturing the day to day life really well, and I admire how she got was able to capture Paris life over a century ago. I love her books and look forward to the next one.
