Riassunto: Joanna Trollope's second Caroline Harvey historical novel traces the lives and loves of three generations of strong, adventurous women
Acclaimed and beloved on both sides of the Atlantic, Joanna Trollope earned rave reviews for The Brass Dolphin. "A true page turner . . . irresistible,"said the Cleveland Plain Dealer, "Trollope . . . can't write a dull novel."Legacy of Love unspools a thread of history, adventure, and romance that spans nineteenth-century colonial tumult to World War II as told through the eyes of three women of the same family.
Each of the women finds herself in a far more exciting, exotic world than she'd ever imagined--and each must draw on hidden strengths to survive. Legacy of Love combines Trollope's keen exploration of family life with a beautiful and complex story of bravery, tragedy, and love.
Dal risvolto interno: Charlotte was the first--wildly beautiful, wildly frustrated--who married her soldier husband solely to escape from the claustrophobic respectability of Victorian life in Richmond. When she reached the British lines in Kabul she was bewitched and fascinated by the exotic world of Afghanistan--and by Alexander Bewick, the scandalous adventurer who aroused an instant response in Charlotte's rebellious heart. As the city of Kabul turned into a hell of bloodshed and misery, Charlotte was forced to choose between her devoted husband and her reckless lover.
Alexandra lived--always--in the shadow of her legendary grandmother, Charlotte. Reared in a gloomy Scottish castle by a mother who resented her, she finally had to reach out and try to create a life of her own.
Cara had inherited the wildness, the passion, and also the selfishness of her great-grandmother Charlotte. Smouldering with resentment because she had to help care for her crippled mother when her friends were all joining up at the outbreak of WWll, she finally found, as the tragedies of the war began to erode her life, that she also had the courage of Charlotte--a courage that was eventually to bring her happiness.
