Publisher's Summary

1666. Newly married to a wealthy spice merchant, Kate Finche believes all her dreams of a happy family life are just around the corner until the Great Fire rages through London.
She watches in horror as their livelihood goes up in flames, filling the air with the heady scents of cinnamon, nutmeg and cloves. As the city is devastated, Kate's husband, Robert is forced to seek employment to ensure their survival, but when he is found drowned, Kate refuses to believe that he has taken his own life.
Widowed and penniless, she seeks refuge in The House of Perfume, the home of blind perfumer Gabriel Harte, who awakens Kate's senses to a whole new world. But as she flees from this forbidden love, her husband's murderer comes looking for her....
The Spice Merchant's Wife is a stunning novel, bursting with the colour and flavour of Restoration London - perfect for listeners of Philippa Gregory, Joanne Harris and Patrick Suskind's Perfume.

good read

Predictable happy ending . Boy meets girl boy gets girl with a journey of ups and downs. Just what the doctor ordered.

Beautifully written and we'll narrated

A gorgeous novel, written so as to stir the senses and make the reader feel as if they are immersed in the sights and sounds described so eloquently.
Penelope Freeman does the book justice in her narration of it; naturally soothing in her tone, she invites the listener to take in the journey of Katherine Finch using all senses.
I truly didn't want it to end.
