The Invisible Life of Addie LaRue tells the story of a young woman who, in 18th century France, makes a deal with a devil to live forever but be remembered by no one. Addie lives the next 300 years as a ghost, experiencing history as it happens but unable to leave her own mark on it. Her entire world changes when in 2014 Manhattan she walks into a bookshop and meets someone who finally remembers her.
A blend of historical fiction and fantasy, Addie LaRue is a captivating story about love, loss, and what it means to be human. Perfect for fans of Hamnet by Maggie O’Farrell.
