The Scent KeeperBook - 2019
"Emmeline lives 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. 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." -- adapted from jacket

"Colette took a shine to Fisher. That's what she called it-- taking a shine. It made sense; I'd seen the way she rubber her one silver vase until the dark smudges left and the bright came through. She was like that with Fisher, too." p. 108
"In the end, truth seemed no easier to catch than the scent of violets. My father used to show me how their smell could be there, so clear and beautiful, and then vanish, only to return a few minutes later, as strong as it had ever been. You couldn't control it. You couldn't hold on to it. I'd thought it was a wonderful thing, back then." p. 87
I wish I could say that I knew what my father was feeling, or that I tried to guess. Grief makes a tunnel of our lives, and it is all to easy to lose sight of the other people in the darkness with us-- to wish they weren't there, so their loss would stop rubbing up against ours. My father and I desperately needed open space, clean air for our pain to move into. p. 45
