From the New York Times bestselling author of Sarah's Key and A Secret Kept comes an absorbing new novel about one woman's resistance during an époque that shook Paris to its very core. Paris, France: 1860's. Hundreds of houses are being razed, whole neighborhoods reduced to ashes. By order of Emperor Napoleon III, Baron Haussman has set into motion a series of large-scale renovations that will permanently alter the face of old Paris, moulding 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. Tatiana de Rosnay's The House I Loved is both a poignant story of one woman's indelible strength, and an ode to Paris, where houses harbor the joys and sorrows of their inhabitants, and secrets endure in the very walls...

Ladette Randolph understands her life best through the houses she has inhabited. From the isolated farmhouse of her childhood, to the series of houses her family occupied in small towns across Nebraska as her father pursued his dream of becoming a minister, to the equally small houses she lived in as a single mother and graduate student, houses have shaped her understanding of her place in the world and served as touchstones for a life marked by both constancy and endless cycles of change. As Randolph and her husband struggle to bring a dilapidated farmhouse on twenty acres outside Lincoln, Nebraska, back to life, Randolph reflects on the houses of her past and the stages of her life that played out in each, both painful and joyful. She simultaneously traces the contours of a life deeply shaped by the Nebraska plains, where her family has lived for generations, and how those roots helped her find the strength to overcome devastating losses as a young adult. Weaving together strands of departures and arrivals, new houses and deep roots, cycles of change and the cycles of the seasons, Leaving the Pink House is a richly layered memoir of the meaning of home and family, and how they can never really leave us, even if we leave them--Excerpted from publisher statement.

But neither of them are children any more and their dream sugar house begins to dissolve.

Kate Stanfield defied her father's warning when she married handsome Jack Dawson, refusing to believe that Jack was an opportunist after her money. Jack, a struggling writer, complained of needing a secluded place to work. Actually he was seeking a safe and convenient haven in which to meet with his love, to end his sneaking and the danger of being caught by Kate and losing all the advantages her wealth had to offer. The search for a place that met with Jack's demands let them to Ramble House, a magnificent edifice that Kate fell in love with at first sight and Jack refused to even consider. The atmosphere inside the house caused his blood to run cold, and his first impression was that the house was haunted. Kate's obsession compelled her to make an offer to buy the house against Jack's objections, even though he refused to live there. Kate ignored his refusal and moved into the house alone. She began to experience strange events and mysterious visions as supernatural forces opened doors to Ramble history. Driven by greed, Jack harnessed his objections and joined Kate at Ramble House, a move he was soon to regret as horrifying occurrences drive him to the limits of fear when he witnessed Kate's bizarre behavior and preoccupation with the past. Doris Woodard Wallace has turned a corner in her fresh and chilling approach to tradition ghost stories. She is the author of the Western trilogy: Flynn I, II, and III.
