The House I Loved

Tatiana de Rosnay, read by Kate Reading. MacMillan Audio, unabridged, five CDs, 6 hrs., $29.99 ISBN 978-1-4272-1485-0
In this audio edition of de Rosnay’s novel—set during the 1860s and written in the form of letters from widow Rose Bazelet to her deceased husband, Armand—Kate Reading’s narration transports listeners to the streets of Paris. At the order of Emperor Napoleon III, neighborhoods are being razed and homes destroyed to make way for renovations and construction. Among the residences marked for demolition is the house that Rose shared with her husband. But Rose will fight to save her home—and in the process come to terms with the past. De Rosnay’s prose is enhanced by Reading’s stellar narration; she reads with a robust English accent, sprinkling her performance with almost flawless French pronunciations. A St. Martin’s hardcover.
