"Seduction by M.J. Rose interlaces the tale of a bereft Victor Hugo, mourning the loss of his daughter over 150 years ago, with the present day chronicles of Jac L'Etoile, caught up in an ancient Druid mystery that is affecting the lives of everyone around her. Intriguing, absorbing, and utterly captivating, Seduction will leave you begging for a sequel." —Books & Books You can find links to buy it and read more here - mjrose.com/...

This is the inside of La Hougue Bie the passage grave where ancient Celts worshipped. And sacrificed...

    Amazing - I can't wait for Seduction (which of course I've pre-ordered!!!!).

La Hougue Bie The site features one of Europes finest passage graves where you can learn about life in Jerseys Neolithic community 6,000 years ago. A medieval chapel sits on top of the prehistoric mound and dolmen dominating this tranquil and spiritual site. Unlike many other dolmens you can stand inside the chamber of the passage grave. Did Victor Hugo meet the Shadow here?

Ville ès Nouaux - a gallery grave.

Faldouet Dolmen - It is likely that the horseshoe chamber was the original passage grave whose passage was dug out to make way for a second passage grave.

Dehus dolmen - hosts a sepulchre that dates back to 2,000 years B.C. One of the stones his engraved with a pattern that represents the silhouette of a bearded man. A mortal or a deity?

The dolmens range over a wide period, from around 4800 BC to 2250 BC. This is thought to be the entrance to a place of worship.

One of the neolithic monuments on Jersey that Hugo would have certainly walked by on his daily constitutionals.

"Mysterious, haunting, and tragic, Seduction emerges as a suspenseful alchemy of potent ingredients, beautifully blended, that ignites your senses and leaves you aching for more." —Jamie Ford, New York Times bestselling author of Hotel on the Corner of Bitter and Sweet mjrose.com/...

Hugo with his grandchildren...from what I read he was a wonderful grandfather and was loved by them. Sadly he outlived all of his own children.

The man could turn a phase couldn't he?

This bracelet belonged to Leopoldine Hugo, Victor Hugo’s oldest daughter. It consists of six medallions decorated with strands of hair belonging to Charles Hugo, Adèle Hugo, Victor Hugo, François-Victor Hugo and Charles Vacquerie (Her husband who drowned along side her in the Seine, as well as the brother of Auguste Vacquerie, a very close friend of Victor Hugo.)

Léopoldine, Victor Hugo’s daughter, reads. After her death, her father would compose several poems in her memory. I’ve always been fond of his description of her habit of hiding small gifts for people around the house: “She gives gifts the way other people steal: in secret and for the thrill of it.” Léopoldine, Victor Hugo’s daughter - Auguste de Chatillon, 1835
