"[One of] the best books of 2005. A remarkable book.... As the title suggest, it's about love and lust, but Passion concerns itself in almost greater measure with those romantic yearnings by which men and women live and for which they are willing to die…. A feast of language, a grab bag of delights.... An exploration of mind and emotion, heart and art."
---The Washington Post Book World
"[A] deeply imagined and gorgeously written novel about the Romantic poets, as seen by the women who loved them…. Morgan brings a fascinating past to brilliant light."
---Publishers Weekly (starred review)
"Whether historical or romantic fiction, or a melding of the two, this is a sensational story of money, marriage, and, above all, high-wrought emotion…. A sprightly, intelligent romp." ---Kirkus Reviews
"The wealth of detail and Morgan's amazing ability to re-create what these women might have thought and felt are worth savoring…. The novel encompasses enough love affairs and tragedy for a dozen bodice-rippers, without ever losing its clear-eyed intelligence…. Passion more than lives up to its title."
---The Christian Science Monitor
"Astonishing historical fiction that vividly reflects the passions associated with an exhilarating new era in literature." ---Booklist
"Passion is a wonderful book---rich, authentic, beautifully written and, yes, passionate…. I have not been better entertained all year." ---Tracy Chevalier, author of Girl with a Pearl Earring
When your father is a man of expensive tastes and schemes but very little money, you soon learn to 'make do'. So when Caroline Fortune's prodigal father finally admits to losing all they possess, she automatically starts seeking employment as a governess. Her father, however, has far grander designs for his daughter...Caroline is to become the companion of the formidable (but extremely wealthy and childless) Mrs Catling. Caroline herself is uncomfortable with the plan but makes the most of this introduction to polite society and soon her beauty and intelligence attract the attentions of male admirers. But, much to her horror, she is just as quick to discover that love and romance are not what some 'gentlemen' seek. Surrounded by people with an alarming readiness to reveal each other's confidences, Caroline is exasperated to find herself unjustly implicated in their indiscretions. But will Miss Fortune be able to avoid losing her reputation without losing her head? And will she realise that there is at least one good man amongst the genteel set who is more than willing to take her side and, indeed, her fancy?Alle Produktbeschreibungen
