Gheens author releases new book: La Traiteur, Rose Water & Thyme

Magnolia Nook Publications announces the official release of La Traiteur, Rose Water & Thyme, written by local author Carrie Delatte of Gheens.

The novel is chock-full of Louisiana culture and scenery; focusing on one of the state’s most invaluable and historical elements: the Traiteurs.

Rose Water & Thyme is the first book of the La Traiteur trilogy and focuses on sixteen-year-old Maura Ellis who reaches her coming of age and is called to discover and harness her gifts as one of Louisiana’s celebrated Traiteurs. The story, while reflective of a real group of people, is fictional and filled with the embellishments one would hope to find in modern southern supernatural tales.

Book one lets a reader travel right alongside of Maura as she is tossed about time and taken to places needed in order to understand and develop her calling for all its potential; ultimately discovering that she is predestined to become the most powerful Traiteur to have ever existed; Celle Choisie.

Filled with cultural details from many different generations, recognizable scenery and a bit of Cajun French dialect, this book pays tribute to life in South Louisiana. 

Available in both hard cover and perfect bound paperback, La Traiteur, Rose Water & Thyme can be purchased online at www.magnolianookpublications.com and via direct orders.

Magnolia Nook Publications is small business based in Gheens and founded in 2016. It is a publishing company that creates and produces literary works focused around life and culture in Louisiana.
