French-born author Elena Mauli Shapiro vividly recreates Paris during World War I in this captivating novel. 13 Rue Thérèse follows Trevor Stratton, an American academic working in Paris who discovers a keepsake box dated back to the Great War. The box, Trevor discovers, belonged to a piano teacher named Louise Brunet. Inside it are mementos that give Trevor clues to Louise's life, including the love she lost in the war and her affair with a neighbor. Mesmerized, Trevor begins to imagine what life was like for the mysterious Frenchwoman.

    " This was a very hard book to rate -- went from thinking "how clever, I really like it", to "how weird, I don't think I like it" and back and forth -- finally settled on giving it a 3 as the middle point!! "

    " This is such a clever book! I would never thought of basing a book around a box full of paraphernalia. This is a clever mystery and love story that unfolds all because of a box full of antique objects. And the box of objects really exist! "

    " This book reminded me strongly of the "Griffin and Sabine" books, with its strange time flow and souvenirs/letters. I enjoyed it immensely, even if it is a slow-starter and has left me slightly chronologically confused. "

    " 3.5 stars
    A very unique, clever, creative and interesting first novel by Shapiro. I enjoyed the blending of French with English. The illustrations added charm to the book. "

    " This is the first book I have read in a whole month! Very enjoyable. A little confusing - jumping through time and space. I loved looking at the old photos. "
