Abandoned pregnant and penniless on the teeming streets of London, 16-year-old Amber St. Clare manages, by using her wits, beauty, and courage, to climb to the highest position a woman could achieve in Restoration England-that of favorite mistress of the Merry Monarch, Charles II. From whores and highwaymen to courtiers and noblemen, from events such as the Great Plague and the Fire of London to the intimate passions of ordinary-and extraordinary-men and women, Amber experiences it all. But throughout her trials and escapades, she remains, in her heart, true to the one man she really loves, the one man she can never have.

Frequently compared to Gone with the Wind, Forever Amber is the other great historical romance, outselling every other American novel of the 1940s-despite being banned in Boston for its sheer sexiness. A book to read and reread, this edition brings back to print an unforgettable romance and a timeless masterpiece [www.goodreads.com]

I found it some time ago in one of the Uccle book boxes (Place Saint-Job).
I didn't intend to read it but - who knows? - maybe I'll change my mind. I didn't make it through Gone with the Wind, maybe I'll manage Forever Amber?...

What a book! I hated it but I couldn't stop reading. It was a kind of sick curiosity: what horrible twists of plot are ahead this wretched woman?
