The Little French Bistro: A Novel
The Little French Bistro where the broken-hearted go to hide, heal, and fall in love. After her failed suicide to escape, her grey existence, and loveless marriage, Marianne flees to Kerdruc, an ocean-side village she glimpses on a brightly pained tile. There, she discovers the colors of the ocean, and instead of thinking about death, begins to dream of life — what it would be like to wear red, make music, and be loved. Marianne finds friendship with the lovelorn Jean-Remy, who pines for the lovely Laurine. There’s beautiful, but bitter, Genevieve, the bistro’s owner. Also, Pascale and Emile, who are still in love, in spite of their ailing health. And Yann, the beautiful painter of tiles, who believes there isn’t another for him until Marianne. The only question is whether Marianne will return to her old life or brave the new one.
The Little French Bistro is, quite simply, charming. Nina George writes a love story that reminds you what it is to be young again, where love is fresh and the promises of new beginnings brings hope and joy. Recommended for readers who loved George’s The Little Paris Bookshop and Gabrielle Zevin’s The Storied Life of A.J. Fikry.
