Palace intrigue, romance, and illicit affairs-Rebecca Dean has written a glorious novel that will sweep Philippa Gregory fans off their feet.
Delia Chandler, an eighteen-year-oldSouthern girl, marries Viscount Ivor Conisborough just before World War II, becoming part of the Windsor court. It's every girl's dream come true. But Delia is jolted from her pleasant life when sherealizes, after the birth of her two daughters, that Ivor chose her only to bear an heir to his estate. Shortly thereafter, she begins an affair with her husband's handsome, titled, and frequently scandalousbest friend.
When Conisborough is appointed as an adviser to King Fuad of Egypt, Delia exchanges one palace circle for another, far different one. While she sees Egypt as a place of exile, her twodaughters regard Egypt as their home. Only when war comes to Cairo-and Delia finally reveals the secret she has kept for so long--can she begin to heal the divisions separating her from those sheloves.
Rebecca Dean's irresistible combination of real events and masterful storytelling will keep readers fascinated until the very last page.
