Summary

Escape to the French chateau this spring in this gripping, sweeping tale of love, lies and divided loyalties. Perfect for fans of Santa Montefiore and Lucinda Riley.

ONE FAMILY

GENERATIONS OF SECRETS

IT’S TIME TO ESCAPE TO THE CHATEAU . . .

Elise is a true daughter of the chateau. She’d die before anything happened to Sainte Madeleine–even if it means betraying her own family.

Alexandre, Elise’s brother, is destined to inherit–yet a dangerous rift with their father puts his future, and the chateau, in jeopardy.

And for distant cousin Laurent, his life-long love for Elise will always call him back to Sainte Madeleine.

But the peace of Europe rests on a knife-edge, and history has bigger plans than them all. Through love and war, danger and deceit, can the chateau–and the Salignac family–weather the storm?

Critic reviews

"Fabulous escapism, full of secrets & scandalous behaviour. Big and sweeping, it transported me to France, Greece, California.... A pacy riot of a saga." (Tracy Rees)

Story is OK. Bloody awful narration!!!

This story is OK. But, the most awful narration I have ever heard in any kind of audiobook. This sounds more like a french book rather than an english book. If i wanted to listen to a french book, i would have bought a french audiobook rather than wasting my money and time on this book. The modulation of the narration is so terrible...even with full volume on the audible app on my samsung phone, i had trouble hearing certain dialogues. And it sounds like the narration was done by a petulant child rather than an adult.
Very very disappointed in this book. Wish I had not wasted my credit in pre ordering this book and bought someother book instead. I think i would have enjoyed this book better if i had bought a kindle version instead of this audible audiobook.
