a strange and beautiful novel. It was a little hard for me to get into but worth wading through the dreamy prose.

As with all of her other books, this one is excellent--a true drink of water for a thirsty soul.

The way this author writes reminds me a little of Isabelle Allende. The book uses the lore of spices to build a novel about a modern-day mystic healer who lives in San Francisco.
