    TATIANA DE ROSNAY is the author of ten novels, including The New York Times bestselling novels Sarah’s Key and A Secret Kept. Sarah's Key is an international sensation with more than 5 million copies sold in forty countries worldwide and has been made into a major motion picture. Together with Dan Brown and Stieg Larsson, de Rosnay was named one of the top three fiction writers in Europe in 2010. She lives with her husband and two children in Paris.

    From Tatiana de Rosnay, the New York Times bestselling author of Sarah’s Key and A Secret Kept, comes The House I Loved, an absorbing new novel about one woman’s resistance during an epoque that shook Paris to its very core

    Paris, France: 1860s. Hundreds of houses are being razed, whole neighborhoods reduced to ashes. By order of Emperor Napoleon III, Baron Haussmann has set into motion a series of large-scale renovations that will permanently alter the face of old Paris, molding it into a “modern city.” The reforms will erase generations of history—and 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.
