Victoria Holt is a pure & genuine aurthoress and her book The Landower Legacy is certainly proof of that. It has become and will continue to be a book that is enjoyed by all walks of life & all generations, now & to come. Thank You Victoria Holt!
Back cover: Green-eyed Caroline Tressidor seemingly has her whole world before her - until the long-heralded occasion of Queen Victoria's Golden Jubilee. When an exuberant Caroline views the magnificent royal procession with her mother and her handsome friend the dashing Captain Carmichael, she inadvertently becomes involved in a secret she blurts out to her father.
From that moment on, nothing is the same. Caroline watches her promising future dissolve - without knowing why. Determined to discover the truth, Caroline begins a search that will take her from the grandeur of London's society to the wild moors of Cornwall, a quest that will pit Caroline against her shy, pretty sister and the rules of a stern Victorian society. An adventure that will propel her into the arms of the dark, mysterious Paul Landower, trapped in his own past, the man of her dreams who might very well turn out to have a legacy of murder...
I am a very big fan of Victoria Holt. This was one of my favorites.
