~Within the first two pages the author gives us a clue that there is a mystery behind the child Daisy which lures us to read on with the story beginning in India and then shifting to England. Daisy shows early signs of acting talent, encouraged by her mother. Margaret James has an ability to transport us back into an age where life moved more slowly and moments were more savoured. Then morality was tighter and women were definitely at a disadvantage in the big wide world. The heroine grows up to become a touring actress and falls in love with two very different men, having turned away from her parents. The title takes its name from the gift of a gold chain by one of the men she falls in love with. The theme is all about choices - the different life directions that she takes as a result and the differing conclusions that follow at each cross roads of decision making. I found myself so immersed in Daisy's dilemmas that I didn't notice how long I had been reading; well written too and thought provoking and I would certainly recommend it for lovers of a really good tale set against a broad historical landscape.~ --Lovereading
~All in all this is a great follow up to The Silver Locket and if you enjoyed that you are sure to enjoy The Golden Chain. However, you don't have to have read The Silver Locket to fully enjoy this book. It's a quick and easy read, and is perhaps the perfect tonic for anyone looking for a bit of escapism from modern life.~ --The Bookbag

Characters from the past make their presence felt and their impact on Daisy and her family derail the story on its journey to clichédom, and make it much more interesting and original. More detail about the plot would act as a spoiler.
I recommend it and am looking forward to reading the third book in the trilogy.
BUT - a word of warning - this is not a new book. It was previously published under a different title:
The Long Way Home. I believe that the third book in the trilogy has already been published as The Penny Bangle. I do wish the re-titling of a book could be included in the Product Description, especially as they do not always include a synopsis.
