of five novels, including "The Lost Wife"
and "The Garden of Letters".
Tonight on morphmom radio show we will discuss her most recent novel,
"The Velvet Hours", which explores the mystery surrounding a Paris apartment once owned by the elusive courtesan, Marthe de Florian. Upon Marthe’s death at the onset of WWII, her granddaughter shuttered the apartment for unknown reasons, and it remained that way, untouched, for close to 70 years. When the apartment was finally opened up in 2010, a magnificent portrait of Madame de Florian by the 19th century painter, Giovanni Boldini, was discovered hanging above the mantel, along with love letters from Boldini in de Florian’s vanity drawer. The painting later sold for over two million euros at auction.
