'A beautiful, evocative love story, a heart-breaking journey into a long-buried past.' David Nicholls'Enthralling and beautifully written.' The Times_________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. 'I ADORE cold-war novels and I live for love stories - The Museum of Broken Promises is a perfect combination of both. It's a gem of a book...
beautiful, elegant.' Marian Keyes
