Product Description

Synopsis

The five beautiful Granville sisters - Rosie, Juliet, Louise, Amanda and Charlotte - enjoy a life of aristocratic privilege in the 1930s in Mayfair. Rosie and Juliet are deadly rivals and when Rosie falls in love with a marquess, Juliet steals him from her, only to dump him later. Juliet goes on to marry the wealthy Duke of Kincardine, but when he turns out to be homosexual, only interested in being given an heir, she leaves him. When World War II is declared, the love lives of the Granville girls are struck a fatal blow. The man Rosie went on to marry is killed during the Blitz. Then, Lousie falls in love with Jack, a sixteen-year-old evacuee from the slums of London. When she falls pregnant, the family is devastated and she is sent to Wales in disgrace. Amanda has turned out to be left-wing, despising everything the Granvilles stand for. The girls' mother, Liza, is distraught that all her plans for her daughters have gone wrong. She can only pin her hopes on Charlotte now...

I was given the book as a gift and i have read some of Una Mary's other books. i found this one totally different but fascinating! This book is set in a totally different time and is written in almost a different tone. I loved it and i read it cover to cover in only a few days and have asked for the next installment for Christmas. It is beautifully written and she seems to really have a passion for what she's writing about. I really felt for the characters and even though it is based on a family before the 2nd world war i felt i could relate to a lot of it. i would definitely recommend this book to everybody, a perfect mix of history, love, family stife! a really good read!

4.0 out of 5 stars Great Start To A Three-Part Series...4 1/2 Stars 15 Aug 2007
By Mercedes J. - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Hardcover
I wasn't very sure about this series...it takes place in England, and I normally NEVER read books that take place outside the U.S., but it's set during WWII, and is a family saga, so I figured I'd give it a shot. SOOOOOO glad I did!

The story focuses on the two oldest of the five privileged Granville sisters. Rosie and Juliet are coming out as debutantes at the same time (1935) and Rosie is NOT happy about sharing the spotlight with her one-year younger, sensual and sexy sister. And, just as Rosie predicted, Juliet absolutely outshines the more practical and reserved Rosie.

Overall, the story is very entertaining, and VERY difficult to put down. There are scandals, tragedies, and always in the background is the constant threat of war with Germany. My only complaint (and it really couldn't be helped, as it's an important part of the book) is just how incredibly shallow and ignorant Liza Granville (the girls mother) is. She only cares about where and when the next dinner party is, and making sure her and the girls all have new dresses for the occasion.

But that little thing aside, this is a great story. I've already started on The Granville Affair, book two in this series, and am definitely looking forward to seeing how this family's saga plays out. If you're interested in this type book...i.e. war, drama, family saga...then I absolutely recommend you give this series a try!
