A first novel. One that our incredibly nice and bibliocentric salesperson says we absolutely must have and must read. Maybe that’s because she knows we’re suckers for first novels, maybe it’s because it says “steamy and sensual” right here on the cover, but probably it’s just because she read it and thought it was swell. “. . . Victoria Brook’s gripping debut novel moves mellifluously between the sensual romance of fifties Paris, the hallucinogen heyday of sixties Seattle, and the steamy intrigue and louché of Vietnam. This passionate tale of a married Vietnamese beauty’s attempt to escape the consequences of a tragic love affair, and the abandoned love child’s quest for her roots, leads to an inexorable intertwining whose tantalizing unfolding builds, petal by petal, toward a brilliant and breathless denouncement.” #16476
