Book Review

"Lives up to every expectation. It's magnificent!"
- Cleveland Plain Dealer

Sourcebooks Landmark proudly reintroduces this classic historical novel.

Karleen Koen's sweeping saga contains unforgettable characters consumed with passion: the extraordinarily beautiful fifteen-year-old noblewoman, Barbara Alderley; the man she adores, the wickedly handsome Roger MontGeoffry; her grandmother, the duchess, who rules the family with cunning and wit; and her mother, the ineffably cruel, self-centered and licentious Diana. Like no other work, Through a Glass Darkly is infused with intrigue, sweetened by romance and awash in the black ink of betrayal.

  • Through a Glass Darkly

    By Jeanette Ritchey
    This is a beautifully written historic novel. It is the only historic novel that I have ever read, that actually describes the little details of daily life for the well -to-do of England in the 1700's. There is romance and treachery, great parties and balls, and simple enjoyment of gardens and meadows. It is a long novel, carefully researched, and well worth reading!

    By bugabudon
    This was an excellent story. Written with depth and feeling. I was always able to picture myself in this period piece. My only wish was that the book was proof-read, not just spell-checked. The flow of the story was too often interrupted with misspellings, usage of wrong words or gaps between letters which always made me stop and want to get my pen out to correct. It distracted from a great book.

    What a work of art this is...masterful. The detail is beyond intricate, characters leap off the page. I was thoroughly engrossed. As i neared the end, i was comforted by the fact that another book was waiting for me! I can't wait to see what happens to Barbara and her entourage.
  • Lovely

    Definitely a page turner! Koen makes every character so deep and detailed, and gives imagery to this beautiful era in which I can't even describe! Highly recommended.
