"A sprawling escape into 18th century English nobility and one heck of an engaging romantic drama."--Newsweek

One of the most beloved historical fiction novels of all time, Through a Glass Darkly presents a breathtaking, lush story of a young noblewoman as she explores the intriguing world of the noble class while building her life with the man she loves.

Karleen Koen's sweeping saga introduces 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.

Although her own romantic fairy tale seems to be coming true, Barbara has a lot to learn about the machinations of the royal courts, financial chaos, and surviving with her reputation intact. Like no other work, Through a Glass Darkly is infused with intrigue, sweetened by romance and awash in the black ink of betrayal.

Full of elements that fans of Susanna Kearsley, Diana Gabaldon, and Phillipa Gregory will love:

  • A rich, beautiful world you can escape to
  • Characters with strong hearts and extraordinary depth
  • Sumptuous, stunning historical detail
  • Romance to sweep you up and carry you away
