Product description


Praise for The Library of Light and Shadow

"The sophisticated and finely detailed narrative and exquisite storytelling draws readers into an esoteric post-World War I, art deco era. Yet it's the compassionate and articulate narrator who brings this heartbreaking but hopeful story to life. Unforgettable."

--Library Journal (starred review)

Praise for The Secret Language of Stones

"A dazzling mix of history, mystery and mystical arts . . . Rose's paranormal historical bewitches from start to finish. Her amazing ability to make her story line believable and her extraordinary protagonist relatable result in an unforgettable psychic thriller."--Library Journal (Starred review)

"An exciting mix of adventure, intrigue, and romance in this thrilling historical tale."--Booklist

"Haunting, spellbinding, captivating; Rose's story of the power of love and redemption is masterful. More than a romance or ghost story, this is a tale of a young woman learning to embrace her unique qualities...So carefully crafted and beautifully written, readers will believe in the magical possibilities of love transcending time."--RT Magazine (Top Pick)

"Mesmerizing, complex ... evocative."--Publishers Weekly

"Passion and emotional artistry . . . transports the reader into the past better than a time machine could accomplish. A simple brushstroke or color invokes so many emotions that it is as if one is admiring a painting rather than devouring prose. The history mixed with the multilayers of the narrative will captivate readers."--The Associated Press

"Rose follows up The Witch of Painted Sorrows (2015) with Sandrine's daughter's story, set against the tragic yet exquisite canvases of Paris, the Great War, and the Russian Revolution, and offers fascinating historical tidbits in the midst of bright, imaginative storytelling and complex, supernatural worldbuilding. A compelling, heart-wrenching, creative, and intricate read."--Kirkus Reviews

"M.J. Rose is simply one of the master storytellers of historical fiction; in The Secret Language of Stones, she serves up yet another feast of history and enchantment, as a jewelry maker creates a passionate, otherworldly connection to a soldier lost on the battlefields of the First World War."--Beatriz Williams, New York Times-bestselling author of A Certain Age

"A haunting story of love and espionage in World War I Paris that both surprises and delights."--Lauren Willig, New York Times-bestselling author of The Other Daughter

"A spellbinding ghost story that communicates the power of love and redemption through Rose's extraordinary, magical lens."--Alyson Richman, internationally bestselling author of The Lost Wife
