Product description

Review

"Told in a lyrical, haunting prose, the story provides fascinating information about the ways in which different fragrances can impact human behavior and the struggles of finding one's own identity. An artfully crafted coming-of-age story that will take the reader on an exquisite olfactory adventure. " - Kirkus

"This coming-of-age story delights the senses, immersing the reader in the sights, sounds, and scents of the
wilderness and city life. Fans of Mary Simses and Jennifer Close will fall in love with Bauermeister's plucky heroine, the layers of family secrets, the lush settings, and the painfully tender relationships." - Booklist

"Woven through [Emmeline's] life's journey is a multi-layered story of fragrance and its evocative power, as strong and tenacious as this sensuous novel's plucky heroine." - Shelf Awareness, Starred Review

“[A] magical novel…Blending fantasy with a realist family drama, Bauermeister’s novel will enchant fans of Katherine Paterson.” - Publishers Weekly

"For lovers of Chocolat, The Scent Keeper evokes emotion and magic through the senses." –Jennie Shortridge, author of Eating Heaven

"A fascinating, totally original and captivating tale about how the love that separates us is also the love that keeps us together."―M.J. Rose, New York Times bestselling author of The Book of Lost Fragrances

"The author hits it out of the park with the most superb sense of place I've read in a long time. It's a coming of age tale, featuring a young heroine as narrator who makes serious mistakes, learns much from them, and ultimately redeems herself. Beautifully and masterfully written. I highly recommend it." - Elizabeth George, New York Times and international bestselling author

"Bauermeister deftly weaves plot and language into a luminous discovery of love―for another person, for a place, and ultimately for oneself." - Carol Cassella, national bestselling author of Oxygen

"Bauermeister's heroine Emmeline might also be kin to Jane Eyre. Heartbreaking, thrilling, and wonderfully instructive, this sensual novel is pure pleasure reading."―Adrianne Harun, bestselling author of A Man Came Out of A Door in the Mountain

"Some very special books have the power to change the reader--The Scent Keeper is one of those. This is a book to be devoured, no, to be inhaled, and held deeply." - Dave Boling, author of Guernica

“One of the most enchanting, unique books I’ve ever read.” - Anna Quinn, author of The Night Child and owner The Writers’ Workshop and Imprint Bookstore

4.0 out of 5 stars Evocatively intoxicating
Reviewed in the United Kingdom on 13 June 2020
When words dance off a page and sing to your soul, you know you are reading something special.

In "The Beginning" is one of the most captivating starts to a novel I've ever read.

The use of the English language is so beautifully used. It is lyrically melodic with the text dancing off the page.

It's evocatively intoxicating and you'll find yourself immersed with all your senses activated as you follow the story of Emmeline.

This is not my usual genre go to however, I was pleasantly surprised and I found myself not being able to put the book down on more than one occasion.

This was my first blind pick after I asked for recommendations to broaden my readership.
