The Scent of the Armoires
The Scent of the Armoires. It is a compilation of the stories of two families told by the grandparents over and over to their granddaughter as a young child, who keeps them in her memory and now as an adult she tells them. This novel is like a bouquet of fresh flowers of all types, smells, and colors. In it the author delights us with adventures, tragedies, mysteries, tears, laughter, thefts, forbidden loves, infidelities, regrets, forgiveness, compassion, and faith. Some stories occurred more than a hundred and fifty years ago, others are more recent, but they all could be stories of the present. A NOVEL WELL WORTH READING!
