Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Lives up to every expectation. It's magnificent - Cleveland Plain Dealer Sourcebooks Landmark proudly reintroduces this classic historical novel. Karleen Koen's sweeping saga contains unforgettable characters consumed with passion: the extraordinarily beautiful fifteen-year-old noblewoman, Barbara Alderley; the man she adores, the wickedly handsome Roger MontGeoffry; her grandmother, the duchess, who rules the family with cunning and wit; and her mother, the ineffably cruel, self-centered and licentious Diana. Like no other work, Through a Glass Darkly is infused with intrigue, sweetened by romance and awash in the black ink of betrayal. * Sold 130,000 hardcover and 600,000 mass paperback * New York Times bestseller for five consecutive months * A former Book of the Month Club Main Selection PRAISE FOR THROUGH A GLASS DARKLY: A completely involving story...power, greed, family conflict, burning ambition and passion kindle the plot. Readers will be captivated - Publishers Weekly Fast-paced and fun to read - Glamour Engaging, elegant, chock full of sex and gossip. - Philadelphia Inquirer

Synopsis:

Barbara Alderly's marriage to Roger Montgeoffrey--twenty-seven years her senior--seems a dream come true until his plans for building a magnificent estate with the proceeds of her dowry turn the marriage into a nightmare. Reprint.
