Opaline Duplessi, a young woman in Paris during World War I, works as a jeweler creating mourning jewelry in a fantastic Russian jewelry store. Descended from La Lune, one of sixteenth century Paris’s most famous courtesans, Opaline has a gift that makes the stones speak to her, passing on messages from soldiers who have passed on. Then one day, the stones speak to her. Opaline is grief stricken and fascinated by the voice talking to her from beyond. As she reaches out for his family, danger quickly presents itself.
I've read a lot of MJ Rose's books and this one was by far the most magical for me. I loved the jewelry making and Opaline is a great narrator. The reader is quickly pulled into her world. The plot is twisty, which kept me on my toes. Its a really great read. Highly recommended.
