About this item
Jac LEtoile 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 mothers 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 whos taken over the House of LEtoile from their father contacts Jac about a remarkable discovery in the family archives, shes 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 shed left behind. Traveling back to Paris to investigate Robbies disappearance, Jac discovers that the secret is a mysterious scent developed in Cleopatras 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 its not only worth living for... its worth killing for, too. The Book of Lost Fragrances fuses history, passion and suspense in an intoxicating web that moves from Cleopatras Egypt and the terrors of revolutionary France to Tibets 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 Travelers Wife, coming to life as richly as our most wildly imagined dreams.
