In this companion poetry book to her sizzling memoir, MEET ME IN PARIS, Juliette Sobanet gives readers a heartbreaking look into the raw emotions of a romance novelist as she loses her own happily ever after. From the impossible pull of forbidden love to the devastating loss of her marriage, and finally, to rebuilding life anew, Sobanet’s courageous poems expose the truth behind infidelity and divorce and take readers on a passionate journey of love, loss, and ultimately, hope.

The Review

I feel rather under-qualified to review I Loved You in Paris: A Memoir in Poetry. What I will say is that it is a lovely little collection.

It is not a form of self expression that I have read enough of to be able to feel that I have a valid point of view. However, having read the memoir that the poetry accompanies and having read nearly all of Juliette Sobanet’s fiction releases I can honestly say that she is a writer that doesn’t hold back.

I believe that I described I Loved You in Paris as a memoir that Sobanet had bled her thoughts and emotions on to the page. It is a stark and brutally honest account of a dark period in her life. So it is with this in mind that I can honestly say that I trust Sobanet has done the same with I Loved You in Paris: A Memoir in Poetry. I just wish that I was much more au fait with poetry to be able to appreciate this collection more.

I Loved You in Paris: A Memoir in Poetry by Juliette Sobanet is available now.
