Sex, scandal and high society. How could anyone resist the second, newly repackaged novel in Penny Vincenzi's bestselling SPOILS OF TIME trilogy?
The dazzling twin daughters of the beautiful Lady Celia Lytton are born into the family's publishing empire and, at age eighteen, are beginning to take their charmed world for granted. In contrast, their adopted sister, Barty, rescued from the London slums in babyhood, is ever more aware of how she came to be where she is.
It is 1928, and the spectre of Nazi Germany is growing...soon, all three girls will find their lives irrevocably changed by a dark and dangerous war. And each must find a way of surviving, living - and even loving.
Penny Vincenzi dazzlingly combines the old-fashioned virtues of gripping storytelling with the up-to-the-minute contemporary feel for emotional depth and insight into the lives of the characters. She is a supreme stylist and clever writer.
