A beautiful, evocative love story, a heart-breaking journey into a long-buried past.’ David Nicholls

‘Enthralling and beautifully written.’ The Times

Welcome to the Museum of Broken Promises,
a place of wonder, sadness … and hope.

Inside lies a treasure trove of objects – a baby’s shoe, a wedding veil, a railway ticket – all revealing moments of loss and betrayal. It is a place where people come to speak to the ghosts of the past. The owner, Laure, is also one of those people.

As a young woman in the 1980s Laure fled to Prague, where her life changed forever. Now, years later, she must confront the origins of her heart-breaking exhibition: a love affair with a dissident musician, a secret life behind the Iron Curtain, and a broken promise that she will never forget.

‘I ADORE cold-war novels and I live for love stories – The Museum of Broken Promises is a perfect combination of both. It’s a gem of a book… beautiful, elegant.’ Marian Keyes
