Summary
Joshua Pearl comes from a world that we no longer believe in-- a world of fairy tale. He knows that his great love waits for him there, but he is stuck in an unfamiliar time and place: an old-world marshmallow shop in Paris on the eve of World War II. As his memories begin to fade, Joshua seeks out strange objects: tiny fragments of tales that have already been told, trinkets that might possibly help him prove his own story before his love is lost forever
