Synopsis

'A brilliantly moving historical novel' - 2020 Caledonian Novel Award panel



When Emile Quenneville loses his hearing in a tragic accident, he also loses Isabelle, the woman he loves. Thirty years later, Emile and Isabelle, unhappily married to other people, are reunited in the wake of the Nazi invasion of Guernsey. With the occupation come dangerous and difficult choices that endanger them, their families and the fragile, rekindled love that has grown between them.



Taking place in the shadow of Victor Hugo's former residence on the island, Hauteville House, this moving, lyrical novel features a protagonist with profound hearing loss who embodies one of the principal themes of the book: wanting to hear and learning to listen, both to one's own heart, and to those of others.



Perfect for lovers of The Guernsey Literary and Potato Peel Pie Society, All the Light We Cannot See and Dear Mrs Bird.

Jacquie Bloese, an alumna of the Curtis Brown Creative course, has a strong personal connection with the subject matter of THE FRENCH HOUSE. She grew up on Guernsey, and is in love with both the island setting and its history. The character of Emile is loosely inspired by her great-grandfather, who suffered permanent hearing loss as a young man. Jacquie has worked as a publisher of English Language Teaching materials for a variety of publishers including Penguin Random House, Scholastic and Oxford University Press. The French House, which was commended in the 2020 Caledonian Novel Award as 'a brilliantly moving historical novel' and was a finalist in the 2019 Mslexia First Novel Award, is her debut novel.
