She joined the Mirror and later became a journalist, writing for The Times, the Daily Mail and Cosmopolitan amongst many others, before turning to fiction. Several years later, over seven million copies of Penny's books have been sold worldwide and she is universally held to be the 'doyenne of the modern blockbuster' (Glamour).

This is the third Penny Vincenzi novel that I have read, but definitely my favourite so far. If you are fan of fiction then this book is a must. It has all the key ingredients, murder, romance, suspense and above all, an excellent plot-line. Well worth buying!

Format: Paperback
This is a story which tries to discover the link between a recent suicide and the death of a man thirty years ago. It is based around a woman and her two daughters but so much more than that as well. Penny Vincenzi once again manages to create characters that literally come off the page at you, by the end of the book you feel as if you know them and it is like having to say goodbye to old friends. The plot is amazing and just as you think you've worked it out there is another twist. A must for anyone who likes romance, intrigue and a book that they can't put down but just don't want to finish!

Mesmerizing,captivating,tragic,romantic and shamefully glamourous!
I can not praise this book enough.

This was the first of Penny Vincenzi`s Novels that I read, and wow - what an introduction.

The story really does have everything you could wish for, but should definitely come with a warning....I found myself still awake at 5 am flicking through the pages;so much so that it only took me a couple of days to read!

I was so dissapointed when the story came to an end, and i`m still enchanted by it now.Highly recommended,must read.
Enjoy...

Penny Vincenzi at her best again. A Superb read - could not put it down. Again Penny spans a complete 3 generations. The story of a woman who has a child out of wedlock, puts her up for adoption but her real father brings her up abroad. She goes on to marry in the aristocracy and have 3 more children of her own, but the inevitable must happen - the adopted child spends her life trying to find her mother and the 3 children know nothing of their mother's early life. Press involvement, romance, travel - Penny has them all and such a wonderful ending too when everything turns about, as usual and totally unexpected. An EXCELLENT holiday read. -Penny PLEASE write some more quickly!

I read this book because i haad read 'Old Sins' and enjoyed it, so i wanted to read more by Vincenzi. I am glad i chose this book, because i really enjoyed it - not quite as much as Old Sins, but i like the fact that the story is long enough to really get to know the central characters and be a part of their lives.
In this book, i particularly liked Chloe and Fleur - i never really understood Caroline as she seemed so contridtory and ran hot and cold, but the two sisters were written cleverly - completely different characters but both with courage and determination.
I think that a Vincenzi book is always obvious - she has a certain style which is unique to her and which i like.
There are times where this book grew close to being tedious, but
then Vincenzi seems to pull it back again.
I wouldn't read this particular book again (as with all of her books i think) but i will look at choosing another by this author to read :) If you already like Vincenzi, i would recommend this one as it wont let you down.

I loved this book. I have read a few of Ms Vincenzis books and love all of them.
This really is a fantastic read, especially if you like something to get your teeth into!
There are plenty of characters to love and hate, but not too many that make it confusing, its just a brilliant story!
