Product description

Review

A great read. It intrigues, diverts, and delights.--Susan Hill

Taylor effectively captures the sense of social upheaval that characterized the 1920s.

D. J. Taylor is remarkably under-appreciated as a novelist.

Taylor traverses turn-of-the-20th-century Kansas and the sparkling social circles of Jazz Age London in this swirl of provocative prose and cleverly conceived characters.... As Alice's life begins to unravel and the stories begin to connect, the narrative takes on the urgency of a finely crafted mystery. The novel is absorbing, wonderfully atmospheric, and loaded with intrigue; it's a wonder Taylor isn't better known.

A page-turner of the highest order. A powerful contribution to the changing practice of historical fiction.--Philippa Gregory

A clever, stylish entertainment with dark undercurrents.... The book has all the makings of Victorian high drama--a slew of colorful characters, vivid and varied scenes, precipitous changes in fortune, and inescapable revelations of long-buried secrets. --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.

Book Description

A wonderful novel of concealment and subterfuge, sweeping from Kansas to London, from 1904 to 1936, by the author of Kept - about a woman's rise and fall, the chances she takes and the secret which will undo her. --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.
