Review:

"Nobody writes smart, page-turning commercial women]s fiction like Vincenzi." -- "USA Today"
"Soap opera? You bet-but with her well-drawn characters and engaging style, Vincenzi keeps things humming." -- "People"
"Penny Vincenzi is poised to fill the gap in the American realm of Cinderella fiction. With so few current writers able to summon the quaint allure of such women]s fiction without stooping to sensationalism." -- Janet Maslin, "New York Times"
"Vincenzi does an admirable job of evoking the bustle and fears of wartime England, and providing plenty of juicy plot twists and turns to keep readers hooked." -- Kristine Huntley, "Booklist"
"A ripping good epic that manages to draw together violence, betrayal, love, danger, and lots of sex. As in her previous bestsellers, Vincenzi carries her audience along on a tidal wave of supercharged plot tempered by genuine emotion, a thrilling combination that picks readers up and won't put them down again until the thoroughly satisfactory conclusion." --Bookreporter.com
"I have found each of Penny Vincenzi]s novels to be absorbing and page- turning reads, but this one takes the cakeeWhat I find so endearing about Vincenzi]s books, this one being a prime example, is the revelation of the imperfect lives behind the perfect exteriors and circumstances. Not that this is a new technique in literature by any stretch of the imagination, but Vincenzi does it extraordinarily welleThe novel]s plot, although seemingly predictable at the beginning, is actually quite suspenseful. Vincenzi manages to twist the plot so the reader is convinced she knows what is coming and then has the rug of certainty pulled out from under her. The prose flows quickly and is conversational, chatty, and informal, making the book easy to slide into from the first page and remaining captivating all the way through. The characters are engaging, true-to-life, and multidimensional. A thoroughly enjoyable novel, on of my favorites this year." --The Queen]s Quill Review Blog AUTHOR BIO: Penny Vincenzi worked at such magazines as "Vogue," "Tatler," and "Cosmopolitan" before becoming a full-time novelist.
