The Magical World of Madame Metier
By

Rating
Reminiscent of the enchanted realism of Alice Hoffman's bestselling novels, The Magical World of Madame Metier weaves together magic, romance, and a powerful bond of friendship in celebration of the female spirit. Facing destitution after the untimely death of her husband, Madame Metier revisits a long-forgotten talent the creation of healing botanical creams and lotions. Her rediscovery of this sacred practice marks the beginning of her spiritual odyssey of self-actualization and empowerment. Meanwhile, two eccentric friends of hers begin a passionate affair that ends their respective marriages. Invigorated by their relationship, Monsieur Sorbonne searches for his life's passion while Mademoiselle Objet helps Madame Metier with her new business. While the couple explores the nuances of their romance, Madame Metier finds herself in a relationship with a mysterious being who redefines her understanding of human love. Just as things are looking up, Mme. Metier's creams result in a customer's death, and the three friends face an ordeal of profound doubt, spiritual crisis, and persecution that threatens to tear them apart. Daphne Rose Kingma brings insights from her self-help books to a modern fairy tale that is both enlightening and entertaining. This is an extraordinary debut about the nature of love and relationships.

Reviews

"Fans of well-known therapist and public speaker Kingma's many spiritual self-help books about relationships will embrace her first novel's soothing divine themes . . . while any reader looking for an otherworldly, quiet novel will appreciate the odd characters, lovely prose, and fable-like tone."--Booklist "With her usual ability to intertwine worldly illusions with magical realities and psychological understanding with spiritual wisdom, Daphne Rose Kingma--who is Madame Metier, after all--reveals to us the world that lies beyond the mists of our modern illusions. Equal parts fairy tale, spiritual treatise, and sophisticated reflection on the existential state of modernity, The Magical World of Madame Metier invites all of us to reconsider and reimagine the state of our lives. Another wonderful work from one of the great priestess / goddess / artists of our time." -- Marianne Williamson, A Return to Love "I have read thousands of novels and can attest that there has never been anything else written like this luminous fairy tale for grown-ups.
