Shelf wear with spine creases and tilt. Pages and inside covers yellowed due to age. Pages tight. 565 pages. Tucked away in a bureau drawer lay the necklace a Hungarian housewife had taken from the baby girl she named Krisztina and raised as her own. Born amid savage violence, Krisztina would grow up in solid comfort, ignorant of her true heritage. A golden-haired beauty, she would be swept toward triumph in the glamorous, competitive world of ballroom dancing, only to be brutally betrayed by a handsome young Baron and a nation in thrall to fascism. Fleeing to France, she sought sanctuary in the old chateau she would transform into Europe's grandest hotel. Krisztina had escaped, but the past would follow her lovely daughter, Ella, to America. And there, in another fabulous hotel, Chateau Ella, the secrets of three generations would ignite and explode in a shattering climax of truth and desire.
