It is 624 pages! An excellent book! I just LOVED this book by Eileen
Goudge! Two sisters have one thing in common... a passion for the same man that threatens to drive them apart forever. Annie created a thriving chocolate shop on Madison Avenue, NYC, using her independent nature and sharp business sense, while her sister, Laurel, became a noted illustrator, yet struggled to get out of her sister's shadow. Characters are fully developed, as is the entire plot. ENJOY!

The first sisters are Eve and Dolly, both Hollywood actresses, both pretty but with Eve having the determination to be the best, which gets her to the top while Dolly settles for parts in B grade movies. A crooked agent plays on Dolly's jealousy of her sister to falsely accuse her of communist sympathies, bringing her career to an end. Eve's subsequent suicide preys on Dolly's conscience,causing her to devote much of her life to the care of Eve's two daughters, Annie and Laurel. The major part of the book belongs to the lives and careers of the two girls, with Annie intent on becoming one of the great chocolatiers of the time and Laurel pursuing a career in art. It's an involved story with some pretty steamy love scenes and characters falling in and out of love. It actually would make a great soapie with villains and heroes, breaking hearts and heroines and the most mouth watering descriptions of fine chocolate making that can be imagined.

From the Publisher
From the author of the national bestseller Garden of Lies, a sensational new novel about an act of betrayal that shatters one woman's life and echoes through the lives of two generations of sisters. Climaxing in a glittering chocolate gala at the Plaza Hotel, e dark secret, and the love, that binds them.
