""Lives up to every expectation. It's magnificent!"" - Cleveland Plain Dealer Sourcebooks Landmark proudly reintroduces this classic historical novel. Karleen Koen's sweeping saga contains unforgettable characters consumed with passion: the extraordinarily beautiful fifteen-year-old noblewoman, Barbara Alderley; the man she adores, the wickedly handsome Roger MontGeoffry; her grandmother, the duchess, who rules the family with cunning and wit; and her mother, the ineffably cruel, self-centered and licentious Diana. Like no other work, Through a Glass Darkly is infused with intrigue, sweetened by romance and awash in the black ink of betrayal. * Sold 130,000 hardcover and 600,000 mass paperback * New York Times bestseller for five consecutive months * A former Book of the Month Club Main Selection PRAISE FOR THROUGH A GLASS DARKLY: ""A completely involving story...power, greed, family conflict, burning ambition and passion kindle the plot.
