As opulent and passionate as the 18th century it celebrates, ""Through a Glass Darkly"" will sweep you away to the splendors of a lost era. Like ""Gone With the Wind"", it is rich with characters so vivid-from aristocrats to scoundrels-they create their own immortality. Here is the story of a great family ruled by a dowager of extraordinary power; of a young woman seeking love in a world of English luxury and French intrigue; and of a man haunted by a secret that could turn all their dreams to ashes.
