Book Title: Daguerreotype: The Mystery of Frederic Chopin
Author Name: Lucyna Olejniczak
Book Genre: Mystery
Stand-alone Novel
In present-day France, a faded daguerreotype and a bundle of letters send Lucy and Tadeusz off on a voyage of discovery spanning two centuries.

Marie was a young Parisian artist, who died a premature death in the mid-nineteenth century. The yellowed pages of her letters reveal evidence of a secret affair between her and a mysterious, unnamed pianist. Who was the musician? As Lucy delves deeper into the distant past, the signs point towards one person: Frederic Chopin.

Could the dashing, handsome young man Marie writes of so fondly really be the musical genius who inspired generations of artists after him? If so, does that somehow relate to Marie’s premature demise? What happened to her in Paris that changed her life so drastically?

Prepare to meet a side of Frederic Chopin that the history books forgot!

My Review of The Soul by Luiza Dobrzynska:

On Earth sometime in the future humans have evolved. They now know who is capable of having children and who is not. The Number of children anyone can have is now controlled.

Our heroine Etta decides to buy herself an android as a companion not a boyfriend so to speak. It is thought to believe that androids are not capable of having feelings but Etta’s new companion may just prove that theory wrong as he likes to take trips to the library in order to learn new things.

Earth is in danger so Etta and her trust worthy android embark on a dangerous mission in space to save Earth, the human race and the androids. But they will have to face a few battles before they reach their destination.

Etta and her android have to deal with prejudices from family and friends. Most people don’t think that androids can feel or think for themselves. They are afraid that the androids will rise up against them and become their superior.

The Soul is very intense and will draw you in from the beginning and keep you flipping those pages. Etta is a strong willed person with a good heart that will stand up for what she believes to be the right thing. I can’t wait to see where Etta and her android are headed next.

I would recommend The Soul to all fans of science fiction.
