Read full description of the books Girl At The Lion d'Or:I have heard of Sebastian Faulks, many times. This is the first of his works that I have read.
I am in love *sigh*.
The Girl at the Lion D'Or is a love story; but it is also so much more. I am enchanted by Anne; she is resilient, yet also naïve. I feel for Charles, caught in a marriage he did not desire, but as a gentleman was obliged to commit to. There is also a little history of WW1 concerning Anne's father and perhaps Charles or his father, of which we are not yet fully cognisant; and WWII is looming.
I am glad this is a series, because there are unanswered questions.
This is a beautiful, gentle and evocative read. One I recommend.
Read information about the authorSebastian Faulks was born in 1953, and grew up in Newbury, the son of a judge and a repertory actress. He attended Wellington College and studied at Emmanuel College, Cambridge, although he didn’t enjoy attending either institution. Cambridge in the 70s was still quite male-dominated, and he says that you had to cycle about 5 miles to meet a girl. He was the first literary editor of “The Independent”, and then went on to become deputy editor of “The Sunday Independent”. Sebastian Faulks was awarded the CBE in 2002. He and his family live in London.
