Grace, Florence and Clarissa are three very different women with very different lives and this novel, Vincenzi’s fifth, is all about how the monumental events and social evolution of World War Two inexorably change them. Gripping, tantalising, packed with as many twists and turns as you expect from Vincenzi it’s a wonderful book about the effect of the war on how women could live.
A spellbinding novel from Sunday Times Number One bestseller Penny Vincenzi: 'Seductively readable' The Times
Forbidden Places is about love and marriage, families and secrets, and about wartime and how it affects social values. It is a story of three women and one family. One is married and widowed within five years.
She is free to start again. Or is she? The second has a perfect husband she thinks she loves. He becomes a grotesque parody of what he once was.
Is that love real? The third becomes trapped in a nightmare marriage. Can the war free her?
