Erica Bauermeister the national bestselling author of The School of Essential Ingredients presents a moving and evocative coming of age novel about childhood stories families lost and found The Scent Epuband how a fragrance conjures memories capable of shaping the course of our livesEmmeline lives an enchanted childhood on a remote island with her father. This is a very difficult book for me to review There are parts that I really liked and there are parts that I really didn't I think the one thing that helps with these middle of the road reviews is identifying for others if the author is worth reading again My answer would be yes There were a few books that I was reminded of while reading this The Great Alone Where the Crawdads Sing and The Unseen World If either of those piue your interest then I suggest you give this book a try Emmeline lives with her father on a remote island off the coast of British Columbia Canada completely isolated from the world Unfortunately things go badly and Emmeline is taken off the island by a loving couple who send her to school and raise her It is a coming of age story which are my favorite but where this starts to lose me is the lack of consistency with the character And also all the smellingI get the title of this book is The Scent Keeper but I found myself almost rolling my eyes sometimes because of my disbelief that someone would actually have this ability to smell I'm sure I'm incorrect and it's entirely possible but I have not heard or read of anything like this before so it was kind of strange Easy to overlook though this didn't ruin the story for meThe book was broken up into three sections with uick chapters Section 1 was jarring for me just because it was so vague and different which is fine but I felt plopped into a world with little explanation By the time I gained my bearings we were on to section 2 Section 2 was my favorite and the strongest part of the book for me I could have stayed there forever Section 3 was where things started to break down for me The main character acted outside of herself in a number of circumstances some of my doubts I could explain away but others I really couldn't the introduction of a character whom I loathed but that's okay I think you're meant to and the ending The ending came to such a screeching halt that I honestly thought I somehow skipped to the end by accident because there were a number of things to me that needed wrapping up I'm not sure if the author wasn't sure how to end it or wanted to end with some ambiguity goal accomplished so she went balls to the walls It's such a shame because this was a really strong 4 or better read for a while and then I felt it fell apart Obviously I'm in the minority opinion so chances are you will love this And I hope you doThank you to St Martin's Press Netgalley and Erica Bauermeister for the opportunity to read and provide an honest review of this bookPublication Date 52119Review Date 5519

The Scent KeeperWho teaches her about the natural world through her senses What he wonโ€™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 As Emmeline grows however so too does her curiosity until one day the unforeseen happens and Emmeline is vaulted out into the real world a plac. Thanks to Netgalley and St Martin's Press for a digital galley in exchange for an honest review I want to say upfront that a 3 star rating isn't bad in my opinion Although I didn't fall in love with this book I did like it Erica Bauermeister puts her young protagonist Emmeline on an emotional rollercoaster ride Throughout this story as Emmeline leaves her remote island struggles adapting to life and then heads to the city to investigate unanswered uestions we do enter the world of fragrance But all day I cannot seem to get over the hurdle that the author ends her story rather abruptly It's like reaching the season finale of a television show with a jaw dropping twist and then being informed the show is cancelled Thanks for driving me mad All in all a great storyline but I cannot get any satisfactionGoodreads Review 240519
