Description
Maeve Devereux, the ornament of opera houses from New York to St. Petersburg, is brilliant onstage, beautiful in person, and generous to a fault. But inside the diva is the seventeen-year-old who helped stage a prison breakout at seventeen during the Boer War, escaped to Europe with her mother and the mysterious Sean Farrell, and transformed herself from country girl to music hall star to diva. Not to be outdone by her lovely daughter, Maeve's gorgeous mother, Moira, starts her own career as a collector of men's hearts and a popular guest at country house weekends and Parisian evenings. Moira's marriage to the American millionaire Charlie Lassiter foreshadows Maeve's to Baron Dietrich von Reuter, the young German who loves her with ruthless devotion. As Europe parties on the eve of World War One, scandals shake society, war breaks out in the Balkans, Moira's past comes back to hurt her, Dietrich shatters under the strain of bankruptcy, and Sean Farrell proves to be the one man Maeve can rely on come scandal, heartbreak, or war. From Parisian dalliances to Balkan intrigues, Maeve's story is a tale of glittering pre-war Europe teetering on the edge of the volcano. PRAISE: "The backdrops are voluptuous, the villains dastardly, the beauties full of fire...an entertaining saga...with a winning heart." -- Publishers Weekly
