Perfume of Lilacs


Summer 1996, Nicolas is staying with his Aunt Rose who is in mourning. To pass the time, Nicholas helps her look after her garden and discovers a passion for botany. Like the majority of teenagers, he is searching for his identity and asks her many questions. But Nicolas has quite a way to go before he realises the extent that this summer will have changed him.

With Perfume of Lilacs, we are submerged into the mind of a teenager in the full throes of puberty and his emerging sexuality. Sometimes shocking, this book will
lead the reader to question the taboos of our society.
