Teaser Tuesdays — “Through a Glass Darkly”

“But here, it was different. She was ashamed, and shame was a new emotion to her–scalding and corrosive, like wormwood. Please come soon, she prayed, her thoughts going out the window, into the square, past the cobbled, dirty, busy streets, somewhere into the great, throbbing city she had yet to see.”

That, babies, is a little bite of Through a Glass Darkly by Karleen Koen. Don’t you want to know more?

Here’s a synopsis, courtesy of Goodreads:

Karleen Koen’s sweeping saga contains 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. Like no other work, Through a Glass Darkly is infused with intrigue, sweetened by romance and awash in the black ink of betrayal.

Have mercy!
