by Karen EngelmannExpected publication: October 23rd 2012 by EccoFor fans of Patrick Suskind’s classic Perfume comes a dazzling debut, set during Stockholm’s opulent Golden Age that brilliantly interweaves history, romance, and intrigue, in which one man’s fortune holds the key to a nation’s precarious fate“A delicious page-turner that brings eighteenth-century Stockholm to vivid life, complete with scandal, conspiracy, mystery, and a hint of magic. Karen Engelmann’s spectacular debut drew me in with its fascinating characters, who share their secrets of cartomancy, apothecaries, and the power of a well-fluttered fan. A captivating tale, beautifully told.”-Eleanor Brown, author of The Weird Sisters“Delicious . . . he essence of witty intelligence. Readers will delight [in] every element in this Swedish weave, from the brutal winter weather to the unfurling of a lady’s fan. The plot is an urgent one, and the characters mysterious, appealing, and memorable. . . . I felt a real kinship with author Karen Engelmann.”-Sena Jeter Naslund, author of Ahab’s Wife and Abundance, A Novel of Marie Antionette
