Description

A blockbuster New York Times bestseller: A wife takes a shocking step to protect her marriage from the consequences of her own infidelity . . . Sylvie wants to be a good wife to Gerald, who offers the privileged life she could only dream of, growing up. When they wed eight years ago, the country was in the throes of the Depression, and she thought she’d made the right choice.  She wants to please her new husband, and bear his children. But no matter how hard she tries,  she cannot  give him her whole heart. She thinks something is wrong with her until Nikos, the earthy Greek handyman, shows her what real passion is—and gives her a child. Sylvie knows Gerald will never accept the newborn, with her black eyes and dark hair, and she despairs until a fire in the hospital gives her a way out. In the confusion she switches her daughter for another’s, a bold act that resonates through the decades and culminates in one of the most passionate love stories portrayed in contemporary fiction. This ebook features an illustrated biography of Eileen Goudge including rare photos from the author’s personal collection.“Eileen Goudge writes like a house on fire, creating characters you come to love and hate to leave.” —Nora Roberts “A page-turner . . . with plenty of steamy sex.” —New Woman “Goes down like a cool drink on a hot day.” —Self “A successful entertainment . . . tingly sex.” —The New York Times Book Review

From Publishers Weekly

Jun 05, 1990 – At age 11, Conway left the arduous life on her family's sheep farm in the Australian outback for school in war-time Sydney. ``A lively curiosity and penetrating intellect illuminate this unusually objective account of the author's progress from a solitary childhood--the most appealing part of the narrative--to public achievement as president of Smith College and now professor at MIT,'' noted PW. FICTION REPRINTSFICTION REPRINTS . GARDEN OF LIES Eileen Goudge. NAL/Signet, * A woman switches her daughter with the child of a woman who dies in a fire. Although Goudge uses some stale plot devices, according to PW , this is a ``highly readable story of secret loves and tangled lives.''

Not a good read

I almost did not finish this book 2 or 3 times out of boredom. The book appeared to have a decent plot at the beginning. The story dragged on and the writing was not good. If you like romance novels, it might be ok.
