Fans of complex storytelling filled with intrigue, betrayal and romance will love Koen’s debut novel. Rather than recount the details of this much-heralded book—and its opulent 18th century setting—I’d rather use this space to highlight some of those effusive accolades. You don’t have to take my word for it—this week’s Free Fridays book is a must-read:
“A brilliant historical novel..." — Richmond Times Dispatch
“Greatest romance ever written" — Romance Writers Report 2001
"A heady mixture of sophistication and melodrama, elegance, decadence and homely virtues...stylishly wicked, smartly written and unabashedly bold." — Detroit Free Press
"Lives up to every expectation. It's magnificent!" — Cleveland Plain Dealer
"Koen is a graceful, natural writer and Through a Glass Darkly is a notable accomplishment, a suspenseful, romantic and vividly believable historical [novel] from a new writer who knows how to use (not abuse) her research material." — Kirkus Reviews
Once you’ve devoured Through a Glass Darkly, continue the adventures in Koen’s other lush historicals, available now for NOOK.
