"At the famous Patisserie Clermont, a chance encounter with the owner's daughter has given one young man a glimpse into a life he never knew existed: of sweet cream and melted chocolate, golden caramel and powdered sugar, of pastry light as air. But it is not just the art of confectionery that holds him captive, and soon a forbidden love affair begins. Almost eighty years later, an academic discovers a hidden photograph of her grandfather as a young man with two people she has never seen before. Scrawled on the back of the picture are the words "Forgive me." Unable to resist the mystery behind it, she begins to unravel the story of two star-crossed lovers and one irrevocable betrayal.

Very good book. A good romance with a bit of mystery. Perfect for those who like historical fiction as it takes place in 1910. It was an enjoyable read!

An enjoyable romance for fans of historical fiction. I would have liked more time with the characters in 1914 and less with the granddaughter, whose story seemed to exist only to build suspense for the main plot.
