Love Letters from Montmartre by Nicolas Barreau is a story about learning to live again and to love after tragedy.  Julian's wife Helene has just died from cancer but before she dies she makes him promise to write her 33 letters, one for each year of her life.  She says that by the time he has written the last one his life will have taken a turn for the better but he can't see how that can be true.  Then his letters disappear from inside the compartment he made in her headstone and trinkets are left in their place.  Who is doing this and why?
