Publisher's Summary

Enter the world of the rich charismatic Lytton family and their powerful publishing empire in this passionate family saga, spanning the Edwardian era to World War I and the excesses of the glamorous 20s. Enter the world of Celia LyttonÑa woman who is used to getting her way. She moves through life making difficult and often dangerous decisions that affect herself and others, not only her husband, Oliver, and their children; but the destitute Sylvia Miller, whose life is transformed by Celia's intrusion; Oliver's daunting elder sister, who is not all she appears to be; and Sebastian Brooke, for whom Celia makes the most dangerous decision of all.

Stay Away

I'm not above a good soap opera...Trollope, Dickens, etc., but this one was so bad that I must warn people about it. It's written in the Romance fiction genre as in Barbara Cartlen, etc. The love scenes are ridiculous. There is so much "fill" that one sits and waits for the plot to move on. The narrator does and okay job with the British accents except for the lower classes which cause one to wince every time she does one. Stereotypical cardboard characterizations throughout.
A big disappointment.

such a great read!

When I began this novel, I was dismayed when I realized the time period in which it took place. After all, I had recently read Ken Follett's "Fall of Giants" and I was afraid of getting bored with the "Roaring Twenties". Well, nothing could have been less truthful! The characters are unique and although some of the circumstances may be the same, the perceptions are what make the story, right? Bravo Ms. Vincenzi! You made me laugh, cry, and gasp with anticipation at many different times! I eagerly await more from you. No pressure! :-D
