Sylvia seizes the opportunity offered by a hospital fire to switch infants, taking a newborn whose appearance resembles her husband's. Her true child, fathered by Sylvia's lover, is left to make her own way in the world. Rachel, raised in luxury as Sylvia's daughter, becomes a doctor. When her career is jeopardized, she is defended by Sylvia's real daughter, who has overcome poverty to become a lawyer. The two women of course compete for the same man, as Sylvia herself tries to decide whether to marry Nikos, her former lover. With the requisite cast of heroes and villains and a backdrop including the Vietnam War, this should be a sure-fire hit for romance lovers.

This is the first book I've read by Eileen Goudge and I must say I wasn't disappointed. I was hooked from the start and had trouble putting it down. The babies deliberately switched at birth plot device is driven by her well fleshed out and endearing characters. I just finished reading it and plan to start the sequel tonight. I can't wait.

I love this author. This book is one of her best. Love, heartbreak, failure and victory. The lives of the characters are well developed and it's a page turner.

This was actually better than I thought it would be :)

Compelling story. Chock-full of romance and drama. Though melodramatic, it's extremely easy to fall into this soap opera of a novel. I actually found this to be quite heavy at times, and the ending almost had me in tears.
