An epic page-turner. It takes you to the height of opulence and the depths of despair, and shows that growing into a life of privilege doesn't by any means guarantee happiness. Joanna Rees combines some very hard subject matters with wonderful love stories, spectacular locations and an incredible cast of characters -- <i>Novelicious.com</i> on <i>A Twist of Fate</i> This is a big-hearted book that leaves you walking on sunshine -- <i>Brighton and Hove Independent</i> on <i>T</i><i>he Girl from Lace Island</i>
