Scented by chocolate and haunted by war, this compelling novel of dark miracles and angelic visitations offers up a distinctly imaginative new voice in fiction. Marie Claire is a young French Jew in a Nazi-occupied Belgian town, and is cared for by her grandmother, who cultivates flowers.
From the Publisher:
Now available in paperback -- "To read Kelby's novel is, in its own words, to 'fall into a dream, a flying dream.' To paraphrase and summarize such fine spun fiction must inevitably be as inadequate as any attempt to retell your most amazing dream the morning after." --New York Times Book Review|Scented by chocolate and haunted by war, this compelling novel of dark miracles and angelic visitations offers up a distinctly imaginative new voice in fiction. Marie Claire is a young French Jew in a Nazi-occupied Belgian town, cared for by her grandmother, who cultivates flowers. A shattering of glass, and Marie Claire's village is in rubble. Her grandmother is dead, everyone is dead. She flees to the root cellar of her grandmother's house and waits . . .
Annotation:
It's 1940, and Marie-Claire's parents have been killed by the Germans. Now her entire village is destroyed by the bombing, and she is left without a family. Rescued by a pair of nuns, the child develops some semi-miraculous powers that come in handy when they need to hide from the Germans.

Praise

Kirkus Reviews
"[A] religious fable set in WWII that will move some greatly while the more skeptical will find it treacly....A skillful harvest of symbols most suitable for the pious...." 02/15/2001

Entertainment Weekly
"Kelby's prose can seem overworked....But Kelby's slim, grim fairy tale exerts a subtle pull...." - Mark Harris 04/27/2001
