The Spice Merchant’s Wife

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.

    Charlotte,
    A thoroughly good read so far, but I noticed at page 264 there is a typographical error 2/3 down the page where Mr Harte has been transposed as Mr Finche.
    Thought I would let you know as editing is not ‘what it used to be’.
    Regards,
    Emma-Claire

      Dear Emma-Claire

      Thank you for pointing out the error and I’ll see if I can change this before the mass market paperback is published. It’s mortifying to find something like this but I have a fantastic editor and the mistake is mine. No matter how many times I edit, revise and re-read, it’s still possible to miss mistakes as it’s so easy to read what you mean, rather than what is actually there.
      I do hope you go on to enjoy the rest of the book.

      Best wishes, Charlotte
