Welcome to the Museum of Broken Promises,
a place of wonder, sadness ... and hope.
Inside lies a treasure trove of objects - a baby's shoe, a wedding veil, a railway ticket - all revealing moments of loss and betrayal. It is a place where people come to speak to the ghosts of the past. The owner, Laure, is also one of those people.
As a young woman in the 1980s Laure fled to Prague, where her life changed forever. Now, years later, she must confront the origins of her heart-breaking exhibition: a love affair with a dissident musician, a secret life behind the Iron Curtain, and a broken promise that she will never forget.
This was a lovely book. Beautiful and evocative and I was left with a lovely warm feeling once it was over. I would recommend this book wholeheartedly and look forward to more from this author in the future. Would love to read more of her books.
