France, 1759

Whilst the commoners plan to rise up against the hated aristocracy, two sisters - Eugenie and Pelagie - are thrown into a bitter battle of their own.

Eugenie is a reckless narcissist whose charm and beauty casts a fatal spell on all those around her.

Pelagie is her ruthless and scorned sister, who pays a terrible price for ambition.

Their lives are torn apart by one man and the soon find themselves divided by conflicting ideals of honour and love.

What began as a scandalous notion quickly becomes a reality of revenge and deceit as Eugenie embarks on a forbidden relationship with one of France's most cruel nobles.

Driven purely by passion, she defies both Pelagie and her father, leaving a web of bitterness and loathing behind her.

Swept away on a tide of jealousy and lust, they are all blind to the deadly darkness that is creeping over them - the shadow of the guillotine.

With France in ruins, they are forced to accept that nothing will ever be the same again...

Praise for Marjorie Bowen



'Fresh, vivid, exciting and enthralling ... This is a fine book' - The Sphere

'A book remarkably alike for its vividness and for its historical perspective' - Daily Express

Marjorie Bowen was born in 1885 and is one of many pseudonyms the writer Margaret Gabrielle Vere Campbell Long used. She was one of Britain's most prolific authors of the twentieth century. Writing was more than just a hobby: her works were the primary source of financial support for her family. Between 1906 and her death in 1952, Bowen wrote over 150 books, garnering much acclaim for her popular histories and historical and Gothic romances. Alongside masterful descriptions and concise, efficient prose, she deftly rendered larger-than-life subjects in the minds of her readers. To this day, aficionados of the genres covet Bowen's work. Her other titles include The Sword Decided, Mary Queen of Scots, The Queen's Caprice, The Governor of England, Mistress Nell Gwynn and Dickon.
