The Wheel Of Fortune

Susan Howatch

2 Reviews

Rated 0

Fiction, Modern & contemporary fiction (post c 1945)

Orginally published in 1974, The Wheel of Fortune and its companion books, Penmarric and Cashelmara (also published by Time Warner Paperbacks) have yet to be discovered by a whole new generation - and will be re-read and re-read by existing fans.

Robert Godwin's tumultuous ride on the Wheel of Fortune begins with his passion for his sensual cousin Ginevra, as they waltz to 'The Blue Danube' beneath the chandeliers at Oxmoon, his beloved family home in Wales. As Robert discovers, his rational, well-ordered mind will be forever altered by his obsession for Ginevra, and his destiny will be forever linked to Oxmoon by the skeletons which lurk in the family closet...

For fifty years, from the sinister summer afternoon of 1913 to the 1960s, the Godwin family are sucked into a maelstrom of passion, disorder, madness and murder. Fortunes rise and fall in this sweeping, compulsive tale, until the Wheel of Fortune finally comes full circle.
