Summary

Paris, France: 1860's. Hundreds of houses are being razed, whole neighborhoods reduced to ashes. Commissioned by Emperor Napoleon III, the Seine prefect Baron Haussman has set into motion a series of largescale renovations that will permanently alter the face of old Paris, molding it into a "modern city." The reforms will erase generations of history but in the midst of the tumult, one woman will take a stand.Rose Bazelet is determined to fight against the destruction of her family home until the very end; as others flee, she stakes her claim in the basement of the old house on rue Childebert, ignoring the sounds of change that come closer and closer each day. Attempting to overcome the loneliness of her daily life, she begins to write letters to Armand, her beloved late husband. And as she delves into the ritual of remembering, Rose is forced to come to terms with a secret that has been buried deep in her heart for thirty years. The House Man is both a poignant story of one woman's strength, and an ode to Paris, where houses harbor the joys and sorrows of their inhabitants, and secrets endure in the very walls...

Table of Contents

Praise for A Secret Kept:

"A seductive, suspenseful, and trés formidable keeper." --Publisher’s Weekly

"De Rosnay’s writing is eloquent and beautiful, and her characterizations are both honest and dead-on." –Kirkus

“In A Secret Kept, Tatiana de Rosnay takes us on a journey to that haunted place where the past seeps into the present, where memory appears and disappears, and where healing seems always out of reach. With her lyrical prose and her gift for creating deeply sympathetic characters, de Rosnay has given us a hopeful story, as addictive as it is moving.” --Diane Chamberlain, New York Times bestselling author of Summer’s Child

"A Secret Kept is a beautiful and haunting exploration of wanting - and not wanting - to understand one's past, of learning to see parents as individuals, whether the parents in question are our own or ourselves." –Erica Bauermeister, bestselling author of The School of Essential Ingredients

“A riveting tale of family, relationships, and the eerie power that memory holds over our present lives. The story gripped me from the moment that I opened the book, for it is told with incredible sensitivity and depth.” –Katherine Howe, New York Times bestselling author of The Physick Book of Deliverance Dane
