New Arrivals......

 Trevor Stratton is an American professor and translator, newly arrived at a Paris university. There, in his office, he discovers a box filled with letters, photographs, and antique ovjects--a beautiful paiar of gloves, a rosary, and a silk scarf. Whose life is preserved here? And who has left this mystery for him to find?
 The artifacts tell the story of the box's owner, Louise Brunet, who lived in Paris through both world wars. Trevor is captivated by her tale: her unruly love for a cousin who died in WWI, her comfortable marriage to a man who works for her father, and her passionate attraction to a neighbor in her building at 13, rue Therese. But the artifacts tell just a part of the story. Trevor almost deliriously envisions the rest, consumed by thoughts of Louise. Or is it Josianne, his alluring assistant, who rules his imagination?
