The Museum of Broken Promises by Elizabeth Buchan: Bookmark in Spalding's Book of the Week




An enthralling and heartbreaking novel; welcome to The Museum of Broken Promises, a place of wonder and sadness. And hope. Inside lies a treasure trove of objects - a baby’s shoe, a wedding veil, a railway ticket - all revealing real 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.
