The Strange Journey of Mr Daldry
Author: Marc Levy
We all have two lives… The life we know and another one, that lies waiting for us. Alice is a “nose”—a creator of perfumes. She is passionate about her work and her only distraction from her job is her motley group of friends, who convene for late night soirees in her apartment—much to the annoyance of her cantankerous neighbor Mr. Daldry. On Christmas Eve 1950, something happens that will change Alice’s life forever: during an outing to Brighton with her friends, a fortune teller makes a mysterious prediction about Alice’s future. Alice has never believed in soothsayers but she cannot stop thinking about the old woman’s words.
