Inhaltsangabe zu „Daughters of the Storm“ von Elizabeth Buchan

Corrected version: June 2014 Revolution, love and death… in the Paris of 1789. A new world is being born and the old regime is going to its death… A time when the shadow of the guillotine falls over a nation at war with itself. In France under the last Bourbon king, the extravagance grows more outrageous and the unrest of the poor more dangerous. Into this ferment, are swept the innocent English Sophie Luttrell, visiting France for the first time, the French aristocrat Héloise de Guinot who hates the man her parents have arranged for her to marry and Marie-Victoire , the loyal maid, who finds herself immersed in revolutionary politics. They are the daughters of the storm which is sweeping France – and over the world. Three women whose lives will be forever marked by this turning point in history and whose passionate struggle for love, liberty… and for life… have such unexpected consequences. About the Author Elizabeth Buchan began her career as a blurb writer at Penguin Books after graduating from the University of Kent with a double degree in English and History. She moved on to become a fiction editor at Random House before leaving to write full time. Her novels include the prizewinning Light of the Moon and Consider the Lily – reviewed in the Independent as ‘a gorgeously well written tale: funny, sad and sophisticated’. A subsequent novel, Revenge of the Middle-Aged Woman became an international bestseller and was made into a CBS Primetime Drama. This was followed by several other novels, including The Second Wife, Separate Beds and Daughters. She has just finished a novel about the SOE operating in Denmark during the Second World War, to be published in the summer of 2014. Elizabeth Buchan’s short stories are broadcast on BBC Radio 4 and published in magazines. She has chaired the Betty Trask and Desmond Elliot literary prizes, and also been a judge for the Whitbread (now Costa) awards. She is a patron of the Guildford Book Festival and of The National Academy of Writing. (Quelle:'E-Buch Text/06.12.2013')
