Day 4 : My Favourite Book

DESTINY, by Sally Beauman.

Sally Beauman has had great critical and commercial success with all her novels: DESTINY, DARK ANGEL, the series LOVERS AND LIARS, DANGER ZONES and SEXTET, and REBECCA’S TALE have been translated into over twenty languages and have been bestsellers worldwide.

book cover of  Destiny  by Sally Beauman

One Evening in Paris, Edouard de Chavigny becomes a man obsessed. A wealthy, notorious womanizer, he is captivated by a mysterious young Englishwoman, Helene Craig, and knows that she is the woman he has been searching for all his life. But Helene is not what she seems. While Edouard offers her wealth, freedom and passion, she must weigh these attractions against the demands of her own secret life and her determination to exact revenge for the destruction of her childhood world. What neither Helene nor Edouard knows is that their lives are already linked, and that ahead of them lie years of public glamour and private pain.

Sadly, I no longer have my copy of this novel – I think it got packed in the box of books that was donated to the Lifeline Book Fair last year. So I hope someone else is getting as much enjoyment out of it as I did.
