Overview


As World War II rages through Europe, two sisters battle for happiness and love

The German army is advancing through Europe and the Battle of Britain is grimly underway. With her fiancé, Jowan, missing in action, Violetta Denver despairs of ever seeing him again. While Violetta waits for news, her sister Dorabella finds herself torn between two men: her French ex-lover Jacques and the heroic, mysterious Captain Brent.
 
But James Brent may not be what he seems—and soon both Dorabella and Violetta are caught up in a dangerous game of espionage and treason as they travel to wartime London. With their fates hanging in the balance, the twin sisters are bound by a shocking secret. Dorabella risks her life to follow her heart . . . and Violetta refuses to give up hope that one day she will be reunited with her lost love.

The mysteries of twin sister Dorabella's disappearance solved, Violette Denver finally has her chance at happiness. She must pursue her destiny in romantic, dangerous wartime Europe. From the author of The Black Swan and The Changeling. Previously published by Putnam.

Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly - Publisher's Weekly
The latest frothy work by prolific romancer Carr ( The Gossamer Cord ) begins with the Denver twins--flighty, sunny Dorabella and sane, logical Violetta--living on neighboring Cornwall estates at the outset of WW II. Repetitive first-person flashbacks recount Violetta's engagement and Dorabella's hasty marriage and widowing; subsequently, Dorabella devotes herself to her child while her twin wonders if her fiance has survived Dunkirk. Then Dorabella's French former lover arrives in England, Violetta is mildly distracted by the steadfast head of the local Home Guard and the sisters turn their mansions into convalescent homes for the wounded with the help of a mysterious, fascinating British captain. The war comes even closer when German spies kidnap Dorabella's son in an attempt to force her to steal radar secrets. The eventful plot compensates somewhat for two-dimensional characters and simple, declarative prose. Paperback to Fawcett; Doubleday Book Club selection; Literary Guild alternate. ( Apr. )
Denise Donavin
In this sequel to "The Gossamer Cord" , Carr replays many scenes from her earlier novel, alternating the narrative between the twin sisters Violetta and Dorabella who are ensconced in a Welsh country estate helping wounded World War II soldiers to recuperate. Carr's use of the alternating narrative is surprisingly stilted, resulting in far more repetition than necessary, giving the sense that the author is more interested in drawing out the story than telling it. On the other hand, the moments of high suspense, such as those that involve kidnapping and unfounded threats of adultery and illegitimacy, are concluded too swiftly. Yet, despite this choppiness, the twins' romantic adventures will prove a treat for Carr's many fans.

Meet the Author


Philippa Carr (1906–1993) was one of the twentieth century’s premier authors of historical fiction. She was born Eleanor Alice Burford, in London, England. Over the course of her career, she used eight pseudonyms, including Jean Plaidy and Victoria Holt—pen names that signaled a riveting combination of superlative suspense and the royal history of the Tudors and Plantagenets. Philippa Carr was Burford’s last pseudonym, created in 1972. The Miracle at St. Bruno’s, the first novel in Carr’s acclaimed Daughters of England series, was followed by nineteen additional books. Burford died at sea on January 18, 1993. At the time of her death, there were over one hundred million copies of her books in print, and her popularity continues today.
