“When you pick up Erica Bauermeister’s latest novel, you must take a deep breath, and then another. The Scent Keeper is a unique coming-of-age story told with prose that is vivid, fragrant, and alive. Everything Emmeline knows from her idyllic childhood spent on a remote island in the Pacific Northwest is challenged when she discovers that her father’s fantastical explanations and stories aren’t true — at least not in a literal sense. Her journey is at times devastating but always evocative. A sensational read.”
— Anika Miller, Phinney Books, Seattle, WA

Description


Erica Bauermeister's New York Times bestseller and Reese's Book Club Pick now in mass market paperback!

Emmeline lives an enchanted childhood on a remote island with her father, who teaches her about the natural world through her senses. What he won’t explain are the mysterious scents stored in the drawers that line the walls of their cabin, or the origin of the machine that creates them. As Emmeline grows, however, so too does her curiosity, until one day the unforeseen happens, and Emmeline is vaulted out into the real world--a place of love, betrayal, ambition, and revenge. To understand her past, Emmeline must unlock the clues to her identity, a quest that challenges the limits of her heart and imagination.
