A magnificent tapestry of a grand and glorious era... as opulent and passionate as the 18th century it celebrates. "Through a Glass Darkly" will sweep you away to the splendors of a lost era. Like "Gone with the Wind", it is rich with characters so vivid -- from aristocrats to scoundrels--they create their own immortality Here is the story of a great family ruled by a dowager of extraordinary power: of a young woman seeking love in a world of English luxury and French intrigue; and of a man haunted by a secret that could turn all their dreams to ashes...

This book was full of all the scandal and intrigue of the early 18th century in England and Paris. Quite a long involved story that showcases the politics and social customs of the time. This is an engaging story with characters to love and hate and it was a lot of fun to read.
