I have experienced many of the symptoms my heroine goes through. I wanted to create a mystical quality to the story as well as a spiritual journey.

In her unique book “Scent of Rosewood” (published by AuthorHouse), Ingrid Longo tells the story of a woman’s mystical journey through the psychological turmoil and mishaps of her life.
Emma Barton is a young woman facing the crippling, emotional effects of panic attacks and depression which threaten her entire existence. She meets an enigmatic old woman who becomes her mentor and builds her confidence, teaching her to grow step-by-step. Only at the end of her journey does she understand the inspirational impact that this old woman has been in her life as well as in her family’s lives.
An excerpt from “Scent of Rosewood”:
“Emma felt so blessed. She had so much to be thankful for. She had this handsome man who loved her with all his heart, as she did him. She had her health. She had friends and family. She was making positive steps toward recovery all the time. Who could ask for anything more?”
Longo believes readers are in search of a book like “Scent of Rosewood.” She says people today are in somewhat of a dark time – economically, politically, etc. – and that her story, and its blend of mystical and spiritual elements with a very concrete struggle with psychological conditions is exactly the kind of spark to give people hope and comfort.
“I wanted to write a story that would be inspirational to many people suffering from debilitating depression and anxiety disorders,” explains Longo. “I have experienced many of the symptoms my heroine goes through. I wanted to create a mystical quality to the story as well as a spiritual journey.”
