Eva D'orsay has left her very sizable estate to Grace Monroe. However, Grace has no idea who her benefactress is. Thus begins a story of two women, one a hotel maid prior to WWII, the other a 1950's London socialite whose marriage is struggling. Chapters go back and forth between Grace and Eva and slowly the tale of these two and their connection becomes clear. Each of their stories, individually, is very interesting but how they come together is even more fascinating. Perfume is the driving force that will solve this mystery between these two vastly different women. The settings for this historical fiction novel unfolds in New York, Paris, and London during the aftermath of WWI and WWII. Unique plot with rich character development and depth. Descriptive, elegant writing style.
