Sneak Your Peek.

For Those That Need Their Books To Have Labels: This is a “magically realized” “comedy of manners” fantasy that has been gothically woven into a saga. Of sorts. Spoken in true ‘genre speech’ for those that crave the categories.

An excerpt from “The Day Before the Story”

“…Lollie observed the noise their shoes were making. She recognized the hidden significance of the sounds, the clues left behind by the sound of their walk.

Talented detectives know these things“, mused Lollie.

If noises had a smell, all of the noises that bounced off the walls today in the Great House, beginning with the Storm of the Chattering Monkeys up to and including the clamor the women made with their heels, would have a very complex bouquet.

Any DuBois would recognize this immediately.

The bouquet would be best described as the lingering scent of cinnamon cake baking in an oven, competing with the asphyxiating smell of strong patchouli, blending with the pungent tang that freshly watered tomato plant leaves release in the air. All of these notes meshed with the sneeze-inducing, sharp aroma of freshly cut garden grass.

Mind you, these are not scents that were in the air at that time. They were the scents that the noise gave off.

Yes, the DuBois were very sensitive to smells. They could smell noise.

Yes.”…
