    Scent of Cloves eBook ¹ Scent of ePUB ï scent pdf, cloves free, Scent of kindle, Scent of Cloves EpubAn unusual and interesting story of Julie Ashley a young woman who undertakes a glove marriage and sails to the island of Rua to be the wife of a man she has never met The strength of the novel lies in the detail and historical period of when the Dutch East Indian Company was at it's peakThis is a novel of suspense and mystery than of romance although there is a romantic element to the story It is an engrossing well written novel and kept my interest throughout but I would have liked a detailed ending for some of the characters

    Scent of Cloves eBook ¹ Scent of ePUB ï scent pdf, cloves free, Scent of kindle, Scent of Cloves EpubA very enjoyable historical novel that takes the reader from Ireland to Indonesia via Amsterdam at the time of Cromwell The first novel by Norah Lofts I have read but certainly not the last one Interesting characters good story telling that gets you involved right away I found the end a bit weak which is why I didn't give it five stars
