  • About the Edition

    In the early 19th Century, Adelaide Lenormand, a fortune teller popular with the Paris elite, conjures a golem for Napoleon Bonaparte during a dinner party. But something goes wrong. It looks nothing like the manservant she promised. Even worse, immediately after it arrives, the golem steals the Emperor"s Emerald Scarab from a chain around his neck and mysteriously disappears. Minutes later in London, Elise Dubois, an ER nurse from Tucson, is found sprawled in front of The Quiet Woman Public House. SheA s wearing nothing but tattered shorts, a sports bra, and one pink running shoe. Gripped in her fist is the scarab (Egyptian jewel). Now Bonaparte"s Minister of Police is breathing down Adelaide"s neck while her wealthy clients are abandoning her. The women of La Societe d"Isis, so wickedly encouraging when she"d first launched her plot, remain silent to her pleas for help. Adelaide has no choice but to find the golem and restore her reputation.

Anne Gross’s novel The Quiet Woman tells the story of a modern day, time traveling nurse, Elise Dubis, who is conjured into Napoleonic era France by a likable fortune teller, Adelaide Lenormand.
