BOOK OF LOST FRAGRANCES, THE by M.J. Rose - SIGNED FIRST EDITION BOOKSee all titles by M.J. Rose
Jac L’Etoile has always been
haunted by visions of the past, her earliest memories infused with the
exotic scents that she grew up with as the heir to a storied French
perfume company. These worsened after her mother’s suicide until she
finally found a doctor who helped her, teaching her to explore the
mythological symbolism in her visions and thus lessen their painful
impact. This ability led Jac to a wildly successful career as a
mythologist, television personality and author.
When her brother, Robbie—who’s
taken over the House of L’Etoile from their father—contacts Jac about a
remarkable discovery in the family archives, she’s skeptical. But when
Robbie goes missing before he can share the secret—leaving a dead body
in his wake—Jac is plunged into a world she thought she’d left behind.
Traveling back to Paris to
investigate Robbie’s disappearance, Jac discovers that the secret is a
mysterious scent developed in Cleopatra’s time. Could the rumors
swirling be true? Can this ancient perfume hold the power to unlock the
ability to remember past lives and conclusively prove reincarnation? If
this possession has the power to change the world, then it’s not only
worth living for . . . it’s worth killing for, too.
The Book of Lost Fragrances
fuses history, passion and suspense in an intoxicating web that moves
from Cleopatra’s Egypt and the terrors of revolutionary France to
Tibet’s battle with China and the glamour of modern-day Paris. This
marvelous, spellbinding novel mixes the sensory allure of
Perfume with the heartbreaking beauty of The Time Traveler’s Wife, coming to life as richly as our most wildly imagined dreams.
