This is the sequel to 'No Angel' and won't make nearly as much sense if you haven't read the first volume, given the large number of characters. Like its predecessor, this book is at its heart a classy British soap opera focused on a wealthy publishing family, the Lyttons, with lots of scandalous love affairs, illegitimate children, and family secrets. The backdrop of WWII adds a nice bit of a dramatic weight to the proceedings in the latter half of the book, and even if this is ultimately still sort of melodramatic and ridiculous (far too many things hinge on a letter arriving just in the nick of time), I lost many hours of sleep to this book, and was thinking about it when I wasn't reading it. Highly recommended, if you're not expecting highbrow literature.
