A family saga, she does these so well. I read it in two days. That's the problem. The story starts with a wedding that never actually takes place. The golden girl, Cressida, is marrying the wealthy Oliver. Both families ostensibly very happy about it. Well certainly Cressida's family are happy. Then on her wedding day, Cressida vanishes.....and herin begins the tale.... This does not disappoint.
I love anything written by Penny Vincenzi. Her novels are fast paced, with characters that " ring true " and leave you wanting to know what happened to those characters after the novel is completed. This was not my favourite but came close.
Penny Vincenzi has written a very entertaining different story. The characters are dimensional, with very real touching story lines. The story itself it quite fascinating---I thoroughly enjoyed it. Loved the ending--the reader has to use their own creativity a bit which is wonderful.
