Edouard’s father and Bertrand’s paternal grandfather. André inherited his family’s wine business, but ended up opening an antique store. André and Edouard were present the day Sarah Starzynski returned to the rue de Saintonge apartment. Because his wife, Mamé, was not in the apartment that day, André forbade Edouard from discussing the traumatic incident with her. For years, André kept in touch with Sarah’s adoptive father, Jules Dufaure, and sent money to assist Sarah and her new family. André died of lung cancer long before the novel begins.
