Elizabeth Buchan – Guildford Book Festival


October 12, 2019


The Museum of Broken Promises is a place of wonder and sadness, hope and loss. It’s a place where people come to speak to ghosts of the past, and sometimes, lay them to rest. Every object has been donated and represents a moment of grief or terrible betrayal. Even its curator, Laure, has hidden artefacts within.  Can she finally face up to her past and celebrate the passionate love that has directed her life?

From communist Prague in 1985 to present day Paris this is a beautiful and heart-breaking exploration of some of Europe’s darkest moments in history, and a love story with devastating consequences.
