Promenade

Promenade is a collection of sixteen stories from around the world dealing with memory and the stories they trigger from the sound of the sea reminding you of an old romance, the smell of a perfume in Paris making you yearn for home or a bar of soap reminding you of a loved one - memories can be triggered by the oddest of things
