MADAM MIRABOU'S SCHOOL OF LOVE is one woman's journey of self-discovery and happiness. Nicole is in turmoil when she moves to a new and different neighborhood after a freak accident. All of a sudden she is meeting new people and rebuilding her life. She is lost because she doesn't quite fit in with her old friends while her new ones take a bit of getting used to. She decides to rekindle an old dream and open a perfume shop with her own custom blends. Along the way she meets a new man, Niraj, and discovers life has so much to offer even when you think that your life isn't going quite as planned.
Ms. Samuel created such a wonderful character in Nicole. Nicole isn't a confident, seize-the-day woman but just cautious. She thinks that she has lost everything but as she realizes her dream of becoming a shop owner, she sees her life isn't so bad. As she adapts to her new circumstances, as a divorcee, a different world has opened up. Now she has a goal, some unconventional friends, a job that she enjoys and a dream that is just within reach. Maybe it isn't too late to start over with new things. MADAME MIRABOU'S SCHOOL OF LOVE is a great story about rediscovery and realizing that you are so much more than the sum of your parts.
