Fabulous epic novel of love, scandal and patriotism in post-Partition Poland. Detailed, intense and thoughtful.

Although the writing is a bit stiff at times, this is an overall enjoyable story from a period of history often overlooked -- the Polish "Third of May" Constitution and their battles with Catherine the Great. The heroine, Lady Anna, based on the diaries of a real Polish countess, is a strong one and the supporting characters add interest and depth -- you never know what Anna's cousin Zofia will do next, or what her true motives are. Recommended.

It was the BEST book I have ever read- I couldn't put the book down. I suggested it to my daughters book club and they all felt the same way- "One of the Best"
