On an island in the Seine, a little girl plants a garden-but not a garden of owers. It will be a garden of people, she says: Paris. And in the center of that garden will stand
its guardian, a grand cathedral carved from stone and roofed with light: the majestic Notre Dame de Paris. Alas, the garden will change, as people must. e girl sees kings and revolutions, empires and democracies, wars and tragedies. e are the best of times, and there are the worst. rough it all, the light of Notre Dame keeps hope bright. But when re strikes Notre Dame itself, the little girl is grief stricken. It seems all light has gone out—until her beloved people discover what she has planted within them all along.

In the spirit of e Little Prince, e Girl and the Cathedral is a moving story about life, freedom, love, loss, and the glory of new beginnings. It is a story about Notre Dame, but much deeper, it is a story about all that Notre Dame stands for. e book includes a fold-out timeline of Notre Dame’s history with period paintings and photo- graphs. Adults and kids alike will treasure this stunning, heartwarming tribute to the cathedral of Notre Dame.
