Product description


"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 "Publishers Weekly"

"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)"

"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 "Publishers Weekly"

"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 "Publishers Weekly"

"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."--Jeff Ayers "Publishers Weekly"

"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"

"Rose transports the reader 100 years into the past into a city known for romance but torn apart by war...Rose's best novel to date."--Jeff Ayers "Associated Press"

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

M.J. Rose's bewitching novel The Secret Language of Stones explores the devastation of war upon the hearts of those who remain. In this tale set in World War I Paris, a young female jeweler with magical gifts learns to listen to the stones she works with, providing comfort to bereaved women by sharing their loved ones' messages. In doing so, she learns to listen to her own heart, as well, when one of the stones speaks directly to her. Can Opaline possibly be in love with a dead soldier? A fantastic historical tale of war, love, loss, and intrigue, enhanced by vivid period detail."--Melanie Benjamin, New York Times-Bestselling author of The Swans of Fifth Avenue and The Aviator's Wife "Publishers Weekly"
