Ifound 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.
The Golden Chainby Margaret James
Can first love last forever? 1931 is the year that changes everything for Daisy Denham. Her family has not long swapped life in India for Dorset, England when she uncovers an old secret. At the same time, she meets Ewan Fraser - a handsome dreamer who wants nothing more than to entertain the world and for Daisy to play his leading lady. Ewan offers love and a chance to escape with a touring theatre company. As they grow closer, he gives her a golden chain and Daisy gives him a promise – that she will always keep him in her heart. But life on tour is not as they’d hoped, Ewan is tempted away by his career and Daisy is dazzled by the older, charismatic figure of Jesse Trent. She breaks Ewan’s heart and sets off for a life in London with Jesse. Only time will tell whether some promises are easier to make than keep … The Golden Chain is the second novel in the trilogy, it follows The Silver Locket.
"A precious gift, a handsome actor and a leading lady looking for love. These are the ingredients that make you keep turning the page of The Golden Chain."
"Ifound 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."
"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."
