Love for Two Lifetimes
Other Editions of This Title:
Two generations, two great loves, one devastating lie . . . A modern Pride and Prejudice story.
When Izzy loses her mother in a car accident, her world shatters. Their relationship has always been so close that Izzy can't imagine life without her. Nor can she begin to understand when she finds a hidden box of love letters that her mother wrote but never sent. The idea of her mother hiding such intense feelings for more than twenty years makes Izzy question everything she thought she knew--including the identity of her father.
Following a trail of clues overseas, Izzy steps into a world of glamour and English royalty, one which years ago forced her mother to choose between her obligation to her musical gift and her lover's obligations to his family, title, and estate. It's a world of secrets and masquerades, of heartache and betrayal. And in the midst of this world, Izzy finds a young man who feels as broken as she does herself. The two are drawn to each other--only to discover that who their parents are may present an insurmountable obstacle between them.
Thrown together on a journey of discovery that spans two lifetimes and takes them from a grand estate in the Cotswolds to a hospital bedside in India and ultimately to the Taj Mahal, Izzy and Malcolm try desperately not to fall in love. But some things are impossible. . .
And some loves are worth any sacrifice...
Uplifting, funny, tragic, and unforgettably romantic, Love for Two Lifetimes is a tale of two generations of romance, a lifetime of friendship, a history of good intentions, and one last, heartbreaking and hopeful choice revealed in prose, texts, and love letters. If you enjoy the fairy tale royal weddings or the intense emotion of any story by John Greene or Nicholas Sparks, Love for Two Lifetimes will have you turning pages late into the night.
