Called an elegant tale of rare depth and beauty, as brilliantly crafted as it is wondrously told by the "Providence Journal, The Witch of Painted Sorrows " melds the normal and paranormal in the kind of seamless fashion reserved for such classic ghost stories as Henry James s "The Turn of the Screw."
New York socialite Sandrine Salome flees an abusive husband for her grandmother s Paris mansion, despite warnings that the lavish family home is undergoing renovation and too dangerous to enter. There Sandrine meets Julien Duplessi, a mesmerizing architect who introduces her to the City of Lights its art world, forbidden occult underground, nightclubs and to her own untapped desires.
Soon Sandrine s husband tracks her down and an insidious spirit takes hold: La Lune, a witch and a legendary sixteenth-century courtesan who exposes Sandrine to a deadly darkness.
M.J. Rose has a talent for compelling writing, and this time she has outdone herself. Fear, desire, lust, and raw emotion ooze off the page, says the Associated Press. In her instantly absorbing tour de force, Rose imagines Sandrine s wild night of the soul dramatically underwritten by a tragic love story and a family curse that illuminates the fine line between explosive passion and complete ruination."
