'An enchanting memoir that will stay with you long after you close the book.'

-- Rebecca Raisin, bestselling author of the Little Paris Collection

'A beautiful celebration of the profound healing power of stories shared.'

-- Karina Machado, author of Spirit Sisters

'An amazing story which gave me tingles.'

-- Carla Coulson, author of Paris Tango and Italian Joy

'The most affecting story here is that of the story itself: the tensions between what is written and what is spoken, and who controls the narrative ... A Letter from Paris is a sobering reminder of the ease with which our stories can be warped by the prevailing attitudes of the time - and the crucial importance of archives in the preservation of lives and literature.

-- Marion Rankine * The Guardian *

'Truly enthralling reading ... Louisa's writing is raw, intimate and unpretentious, and she shares her experiences in such a way that the reader is invested from page one.'

* The French Village Diaries *

-- Christopher Bantick * Weekly Times *


* The New Daily *

'A beautiful, true story, engagingly told. So much joy and kindness between the covers.'

-- Natasha Lester, author of The Paris Seamstress
