Following on from author Joanna Lamberts other books in this great family saga, we are now up to the year 1996.
Charlotte has been having a secret relationship with rock star Christian Rosetti, when his behaviour changes and he begins to behave out of character and erratic, Charlotte finds herself drawn to Marco. Marco along with his stepmother Thérèse D’Alesandro and his sister have just moved into Higher Padbury Manor.
Charlotte and Marco’s relationship gets off to a rocky start, and all though they love each other, and want to be together, Marco’s calculating and manipulative stepmother will do anything to keep them apart. Thérèse wants Marco to marry the very young Rossana Caravello. Thérèse knows that on her eighteenth birthday Rossana will inherit one of Italy’s finest vineyards, and she knows this will be a great business gain for her husband Gianlucca.
Thérèse will not let anything stop her plans to get Marco and Rossana together, but just how far and how low is she prepared to go to get exactly what she wants?
I have read all of the other books by Joanna Lambert in this series, and I could not wait to find out what happens next in the character’s lives. This is another sensational story, lots and lots of drama, a rollercoaster of human emotion. You can read this as a stand-alone book, without reading the others in the series, but I would recommend reading all of Joanna Lambert’s books in this series because they are all remarkable reads.
