SYNOPSIS

AS WORLD WAR I RAGES AND THE ROMANOV DYNASTY REACHES ITS SUDDEN, BRUTAL END, A YOUNG JEWELRY MAKER DISCOVERS LOVE, PASSION, AND HER OWN HEALING POWERS IN THIS RICH AND ROMANTIC NOVEL BY NEW YORK TIMES BESTSELLING AUTHOR M.J. ROSE.
Nestled deep within Paris’s historic Palais Royal, safe inside La Fantasie Russie’s once-bustling workshop, young, ambitious Opaline Duplessi spends her days making trench watches for soldiers at the front and mourning jewelry for the mothers, wives, and lovers of those who have fallen. Opaline has a rare gift, a form of lithomancy that allows her to translate the energy emanating from stones. Certain gemstones enable her to receive messages from beyond. In her mind, she is no mystic, but merely a messenger giving voice to soldiers who died before they were able to properly express themselves to loved ones. Until one day, one of these fallen soldiers communicates a message—directly to her. So begins a dangerous journey that will take Opaline into the darkest corners of wartime Paris and across the English Channel, where the exiled Romanov dowager empress is waiting to discover the fate of her family.

Full of romance, seduction, and a love so powerful it reaches beyond the grave, The Secret Language of Stones is yet another “entrancing read that will long be savored” (Library Journal, starred review).
“Spellbinding.” —Alyson Richman, author of The Lost Wife

  1. I can’t wait to read M.J. Rose’s latest, The Secret Language Of Stones. What I love most about her books is that I’m brought right into the story. I love that I become connected to the characters. I also love her writing. What I hate is when I read the last page and it’s over.

  4. I like the sense of being immersed in another world and escaping my own — Rose is superb at fabricating engaging detailed settings with characters I want to follow in their various life adventures. Thanks for making hard copies available for several entrants — that’s delightful! Cheers, Kara S

    • great words, yes, her characters are amazing. You know, the choice of book format are not determined by tour organizers, but by authors (sometimes, when independent mostly), and often by publishers. And there are copyright issues, hence the limit to some countries sometimes. The giveaways are also determined by publishers and authors, not tour organizers
