The novel opens in Great Britain in 1942, in the middle of World War II, as aristocratic (and sexually frustrated) Caroline Hunterton falls desperately in love with American fighter pilot Brendan FitzPatrick. After Caroline becomes pregnant, she tries to reach her lover to tell him the news; distraught when he does not reply, she (at the urging of her mortified parents) gives the baby girl up for adoption and marries a man she does not love. When Brendan, who has been wounded and unable to be contacted, finally returns to Suffolk, a heartbroken Caroline tells him it's too late for their love. But it's not too late for one thing --- adoption proceedings have not yet been finalized, and Brendan can take their daughter, Fleur, for his own.
He does so, and the doting young father takes the girl back to New York City. After the war, Brendan turns his eyes westward --- to Hollywood, leaving his beloved daughter in the care of relatives while he pursues his dreams of stardom. Brendan might not be much of an actor, but he certainly does have star quality --- that is, until the threat of exposing a salacious scandal destroys him utterly.
As for Caroline, she and her husband have three children in quick succession.Read more ›
Delivery time was excellent as usual. Wish local bookstores would carry more English writers. All her books get a 5 star rating from me.

Great writer. Never disappointed with her prose. Subject issues not my favorite but writing style made the story laudatory and addicting.Published 18 months ago by Val
Book didn't keep my attention, not a page turner, just an okay story line. Didn't look forward to reading next chapterPublished on April 12, 2014 by sheila o leary
Being an avid reader I love the way she has numerous characters leading independent lives. Sometimes over long periods of time and sometimes not. I hope she never stop writing!Published on April 5, 2014 by Carole S.
