"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.

"A completely involving story...power, greed, family conflict, burning ambition and passion kindle the plot. Readers will be captivated!"
- Publishers Weekly
"Fast-paced and fu
Definitely a page turner! Koen makes every character so deep and detailed, and gives imagery to this beautiful era in which I can't even describe! Highly recommended.
This family became mine
What a work of art this is...masterful. The detail is beyond intricate, characters leap off the page. I was thoroughly engrossed. As i neared the end, i was comforted by the fact that another book was waiting for me! I can't wait to see what happens to Barbara and her entourage.
I could not put it down! I downloaded the novel to my iBooks and drained my battery daily reading. A wonderful story.
