Daughter of the Swan

(1987)
A novel by

 
 
Florence's world is elegant and claustrophobic. Her life in Paris, with her antique-dealer father, is regularly
punctuated with trips to London, to her charismatic Aunt Julia. But when Julia is killed, Florence is devastated. In her anguish, she consults a clairvoyant, who tells her she is soon to encounter the love of her life. And then she meets Felix. .
Flawlessly handsome yet enigmatic, Felix may indeed be Florence's romantic destiny. But their relationship is only the beginning of a dark, haunting, sensual journey, a fairy-tale spell of transcendent longing and frozen passion from which Florence must ultimately be released.
