9780061995354_p0_v1_s260x420This historical novel is set as the 19th draws to a close in Stockholm, when the winds of change and revolution are sweeping across the capitals of Europe.  Here readers meet Emil Larsson, a satisfied bachelor with a good job as a bureaucrat.  One night this all changes when a local fortune-teller reveals to him a vision: a golden path that will lead him to love and connection if only he can find eight different people that are shown on cards that the fortune-teller gives him.  Intrigued, Emil begins the search but soon discovers there are deeper powers at work and that finding those eight people may be the key to pulling Sweden back from rebellion and chaos.  This debut is sure to draw you in.
