AN AMERICAN DUCHESS
An American Duchess is a sweeping story that realistically depicts the trials and tribulations of a family picking up the pieces after World War I. Merging the flavor of Downton Abbey with her own special touches, Page crafts a vibrant novel and a dramatic love story with strong, well motivated characters and completely captures the angst and glamour of the era.
American heiress Zoe Gifford schemes to marry Englishman Sebastian Hazelton, claim her inheritance, give him the money he needs to maintain his home, divorce him and be a wealthy, independent woman. However, her plan falters when circumstances have her wed Sebastian’s brother, Nigel. Zoe represents everything modern that Nigel despises. However, they discover a kinship, as each has lost everything in the war, and their differences spark undeniable passion. (HQN, Oct., 384 pp., $14.95)
