(Debuted at #8 in Hardcover Fiction) The House I Loved by Tatiana De Rosnay: “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.” (February 2012)
