Description from Goodreads:

Monsieur Perdu calls himself a literary apothecary. From his floating bookstore in a barge on the Seine, he prescribes novels for the hardships of life. Using his intuitive feel for the exact book a reader needs, Perdu mends broken hearts and souls. The only person he can’t seem to heal through literature is himself; he’s still haunted by heartbreak after his great love disappeared. She left him with only a letter, which he has never opened.


My thoughts:

I enjoyed my visit with  Monsieur Jean Perdue and the voyage on his Literary Apothecary. The trip revolved around finding closure to a relationship that ended prematurely. In addition to the colorful characters, it was a literary treat with over 52 literary references. I love books that point to other books and authors.

I was given a copy of this book from Random House through Bloggin for Books and Netgalley in exchange for an honest opinion.
