I'm always on the lookout for romantic suspense that isn't cluttered up with a lot of bedroom scenes (sorry to those who live for the sex!). This is a well-done book that captured my interest. Lucy Waring was raised by Christian missionaries in China. Lucy's British parents died of cholera not long after her birth, so she grows up with Chinese girls and becomes almost completely acculturated to their ways and values. The arrival of two vastly different fortune-hunters in her little community changes her life, and before long, she finds herself widowed and living in a British manor with an unpleasant family. The fortune hunters (Falcon and Sabine, between whom no love is lost) influence Lucy's life in major ways. I genuinely liked this book but did find that the character of Nicholas Sabine (Lucy's husband) was a little too malleable; meaning, he sort of shape-shifted in the course of the book. It ends happily and is well-written. The author certainly knew her Chinese history.

This catapulted "Madeline Brent" into fame in 1973. Classic story about a forgotten orphan who grew up in China before the Boxer rebellion. Adventures, mysteries, culture clashes, betrayals, reversals, growing up and gaining wisdom. If you can get a copy, make it a keeper on your shelf.

I have a personal library which includes every book written by this amazingly talented author (who by the way, is a man writing under a woman's name!) I have read each book several times throughout my life and they never get boring. How I wish that I had the money to make each title into a movie!

If you like books with history, romance and a lot of humor don't miss out on this book. Madeline Brent wrote some really great novels and this is the best. There are parts of it that can still make me laugh out loud and it is the most unusual romance i have ever read. I love the characters and particularly Lucy Waring. It is very interesting to read about the difference between the culture in Asia and in England and the very funny predicaments that causes Lucy to fall into. This is a book well worth reading over and over and sharing with other people.
Siramath
Awesome Book and the other books made by this author. If you like Gothic Romance along with Adventure & completely innocent, but wonderfully written, you will enjoy this authors books. I own most, and anyone who borrows mine and reads them, wants more of them to read.
Nightscar
This is probably my favorite book ever. It is like comfort food to me; I can read it over and over again. It is a definite classic that I highly recommend to anyone who will listen. Such a great book. Good work, Madeleine Brent!
Naril
Wow - one of my favorite books of all time, and they just butchered the layout/design. The font is too small (and I am in my 30s so not yet having complaining about small print!) and weirdly positioned on the page, with huge margins. DO NOT get this edition.
One I have reread, and glad to add to my collection/
