Summary

An intriguing tale of power, corruption, secrets and love that will thrill you from start to finish!  

Against backdrops of London, Paris, Warsaw and Sydney, Marianne, a beautiful European refugee, marries into a wealthy establishment family. 

But a mystery lies at the heart of the unusual union. Haunted by her past and rejected by a powerful mother-in-law who is determined to destroy this nobody who has ‘trapped’ her son, Marianne is pushed to the edge. 

In the scandal that follows, she is forced to pay a shocking price. 

Almost three decades later, Marianne’s daughter, Eve, a high-profile media presenter, is tormented by the mystery of her parents’ past. When her search for the truth finds her charged with murder, Eve’s only hope lies in betraying the woman who has become her closest confidante.

Meh

The story (stories, really) is scattered - bouncing between past and present. It's a bit messy, and the author tries too hard to get too much drama into one book. This follows three generations in one family line, and jumps back and forth between the characters' histories to make points about the ancestry and its "curse". All-in-all an interesting read, but it could use better organization and clearer thoughts.
