The Emperor of Paris by CS Richardson

In early 1900s Paris, an illiterate baker who worships books and a disfigured girl who loves to read unwittingly wind their way toward each other — and love — with the help of mysterious strangers. An enchanting, wistful tale about longing, fate, hope and perseverance is painted in delicate strokes by an author who, in his other career, is a book designer.
