Auteur phare de la collection - Les Historiques -, Anne Herries a situe plusieurs de ses romans en Angleterre medievale, avant de s interesser aux coulisses de la cour elisabethaine, puis a l epoque tumultueuse de la Regence.From Booklist:
Set in England just before World War I, Herries’ latest tells of a time on the brink of social change. The Trenwiths are a very proper upper-class family whose sense of propriety means everything. Sarah is a friendly young lady, but in looks she doesn’t hold a candle to her older sister, the spoiled Marianne. Marianne is engaged to Troy Pelham, a dashing man who comes from an even wealthier family. When Troy is seen coming out of a houseguest’s room, Marianne breaks off the engagement in a temper, and the Trenwiths fear scandal. Over the next year, Sarah and Troy fall in love, but her parents refuse his suit. When Troy enlists, Sarah gives herself to him and finds out how the other half lives when her parents throw her out. Although both Sarah and Troy belong to the upper classes, they also become part of the new, more equitable social order in Herries’ remarkable story. --Maria Hatton
