Sparkles with all of the passion, extravagance and scandal 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. From aristocrats to scoundrels, its rich, vivid characters 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. . .

Rosalyn Landor has much to dramatize in this novel of transitions. Barbara Alderley is 15 when she marries Roger Montgeoffrey, a man 27 years her senior. Landor uses spirited pacing to portray a passionate, innocent Barbara who races into her future. Later, Landor suffuses this portrait with strong emotions as Barbara encounters the realities of her new life. Using a deep voice for the character of Roger, she conveys much more than his masculinity in her portrayal of a man with many secrets. Landor's elegant articulation projects the glamour of both English society and French court life. Listeners will not feel that the abridgment has deprived them.
