Description
Over three decades of writing, bestselling novelist Rosie Thomas has earned an untold number of awards and glowing critical praise. Her latest novel, "Constance, " is a powerful story of a woman's anguished reckoning with her past.
Far away from her home in England--and a heartbreak she can never truly escape--Connie has carved out a new life for herself in Bali--an idyllic place of perfect beaches framed with lush, green trees. When she hears the news that her sister Jeanette is dying, the last thing she wants is to leave her home and return to London. As a child, she was aware only of the differences between herself and her sister. One of them was dark, the other sunny. Yet they both fell in love with the same man.
But with the bitterness of betrayal still between them, the sisters have to learn to forgive each other. Do the bonds of shared childhood lie deeper than they had believed? And, surrounded by family, can Connie make her peace with who she really is--and who she loves?
Praise for "The Kashmir Shawl"
"Mystery, intrigue, a great love, passion, and a terrible sorrow all come together to make "The Kashmir Shawl" a very touching and satisfying read." --Barbara Taylor Bradford
