Description
This novel by the creator and writer of the hugely popular PBS Masterpiece series Victoria is another lush and irresistible story of the public lives and private longings of grand historical figures. Empress Elizabeth of Austria, known as Sisi, is the Princess Diana of 19th-century Europe; famously beautiful, as captured in a portrait with diamond stars in her hair, she is unfulfilled in her marriage to the older Emperor Franz Joseph. Sisi has spent years evading the stifling formality of royal life on her private train or yacht or, whenever she can, on the back of a horse. Captain Bay Middleton is dashing, young, and the finest horseman in England; he is also impoverished, with no hope of buying the horse needed to win the Grand National—until he meets Charlotte Baird, a clever, plainspoken heiress whose money give her a choice among suitors but who falls in love with Bay. When Sisi joins the legendary hunt organized by Earl Spencer, Bay is asked to guide her on the treacherous course and their shared passion for riding leads to an infatuation that jeopardizes the growing bond between Bay and Charlotte, and threatens all of their futures.

"The perfect storm of escapism, suspense, romance, and superb historical research."—Times (UK)
