Banished to London and plunged headlong into a society that is both glamorous and ruthless, Emilie discovers that for all her extraordinary education she has no insight into the workings of the human heart. When she tries to return to the world of books and study, she instead unravels a shocking secret that sets her on her true journey to enlightenment.
The Alchemist's Daughter is a gripping, evocative tale. Set against the backdrop of eighteenth-century London society, it is an unforgettable story of one woman's journey through a world of mystery, passion, and obsession.
"Emilie may be a classic fairy-tale heroine on the surface, but this Sleeping Beauty has depth and an increasingly self-aware intelligence." (The Washington Post Book World)

I loved this book! I was sad to see it end. It was beautifully read and the reader pulled me deeper into the story. I think that it better suited for women (men won't find it as interesting). Well worth the listen.

This novel was beautifully written and well read by the narrator. I found myself listening well beyond what I had time for some days. The story is provocative with several emotional peaks. The character is identifiable. Growing with her is a personal journey. Rich symbolism and unusual descriptions leave the listener satisfied. I haven't removed it from my portable device yet thinking that I may listen to it again.
