Volume Two in the 'Spoils Of Time' trilogy.
The eagerly awaited second novel in the trilogy that began with 'No Angel' - an enthralling novel of family drama and the wider world of society and politics.
The dazzling Lytton twins, Adele and Venetia, grow up with the world at their feet. Born into the great Lytton publishing empire, they are rich and admired, with a confidence verging on arrogance. At eighteen, in 1928, their future seems assured. But the spectre of Nazi Germany is growing . . .
Gradually the twins' lives darken in unimaginable ways, as they struggle to cope with circumstances their privileged world has not prepared them for. But it is not just the twins whose lives have been irrevocably changed: Barty Miller, rescued from the London slums in babyhood by Celia Lytton, clever, ambitious, and a complete contrast to the twins, is faced with a temptation of the most unexpected kind . . .
