The Confectioner’s Tale

The Confectioner’s Tale

Author(s): Laura Madeleine

Location(s): Paris

Genre(s): Historical, Romance

Era(s): Early 1900s and 1980s



At the famous Patisserie Clermont in Paris, 1909, a chance encounter with the owner’s daughter has given one young man a glimpse into a life he never knew existed: of sweet cream and melted chocolate, golden caramel and powdered sugar, of pastry light as air.

But it is not just the art of confectionery that holds him captive, and soon a forbidden love affair begins.

Almost eighty years later, an academic discovers a hidden photograph of her grandfather as a young man with two people she has never seen before. Scrawled on the back of the picture are the words ‘Forgive me’. Unable to resist the mystery behind it, she begins to unravel the story of two star-crossed lovers and one irrevocable betrayal.

A decadent story of love and scandal that sweeps you away to Paris”

Alternating chapters of two stories with a common link. Works well and the setting really comes to life
