"[A] luminous fairy tale for grown-ups. Read it and experience the magical powers of love in its many manifestations" (M.J. Ryan, author of Attitudes of Gratitude). 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, a mysterious being redefines Madame Metier's understanding of human love. Just as things are looking up, Madame 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. "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." -Booklist "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, #1 New York Times-bestselling author "A lyrical page turner that clandestinely drops in doses of deep wisdom and inspiring insights between a mesmerizing storyline and fascinating plot twists. I couldn't put it down!" -Katherine Woodward Thomas, New York Times-bestselling author
