Ella Carey on the web:




Favorites: 
Books that I can lose myself in for hours and never want to put aside, long walks along wide, sandy beaches, a roaring fire and the softest of merino blankets with which to snuggle up, fascinating stories from Europe’s rich heritage.
Frustrations: 
Traffic that sits at a standstill and simply doesn’t move… you can use your imaginations and pull some more metaphors out of that!

Fabulous: 
Gorgeous, stunning fashion, exquisite Italian food, and Villas, with cypress trees, and a table laid out on a terrace for dinner...



From a Paris Balcony

Heartbroken and alone, Boston art curator Sarah West is grieving the recent deaths of her parents and the end of her marriage. Ultrasensible by nature, she’s determined to stay the course to get her life back on track. But fate has something else in mind. While cleaning out her father’s closet, she finds a letter from the famous Parisian courtesan Marthe de Florian, dated 1895. The subject? Sarah’s great-great-aunt Louisa’s death. Legend has it Louisa committed suicide…but this letter implies there’s more to that story.
Determined to learn the truth, Sarah, against her nature, impulsively flies to Paris. There she’s drawn into the world of her flatmate, the brilliant artist Laurent Chartier. As she delves deep into the glittering Belle Époque to unravel the mystery, Sarah finds that her aunt’s story may offer her exactly what she needs to open up to love again.
Following Sarah in the present day and Louisa in the 1890s, this moving novel spans more than a century to tell the stories of two remarkable women.

  9. I don't mind long traffic lines a long as I have something to read and it's not too hot or too cold. And snacks. If I have snacks. And a bathroom.

    I take it back. Being stuck in traffic stinks.

  13. Wow! I agree. This novel sounds great! I must confess to being ultrasensible, too. And I hate sitting in traffic--especially when I'm tired. All the luck with your new release, Ella. Thanks for sharing this with your followers, Nas! All the best, ladies.
