Overview

From Paullina Simons who brought you the unforgettable The Bronze Horseman comes the much-anticipated Children of Liberty. Never forget where you came from. At the turn of the century and the dawning of the modern world, Gina sails from Sicily to Boston's Freedom Docks to find a new and better life, and meets Harry Barrington, who is searching for his own place in the old world of New England. She is a penniless unrefined immigrant, he a first family Boston Blue-blood, yet they are hopelessly drawn to one another. Over their denials, their separations, and over time, Gina and Harry long to be together. Yet their union would leave a path of destruction in its wake that will swallow two families. The fates of the Barringtons and Attavianos become entwined, on a collision course between the old and the new, between what is expected and what is desired . . . what is chosen and what is bestowed . . . what is given and what is taken away. Torn and torn apart, Gina and Harry face the cruelest choice of all-between what they cannot have and what they cannot live without.

Reviews

Praise for Tatiana and Alexander 'This has everything a romance glutton could wish for: a bold, talented and dashing hero, a heart-stopping love affair ! It also has -- thank goodness -- a welcome sense of humour and discernible characters rather than ciphers.' Victoria Moore, Daily Mail Praise for The Bronze Horseman 'Pulling off the passionate love story embedded in a truly epic narrative is a difficult thing to do. Margaret Mitchell's Gone With the Wind remains the blueprint for the genre, while Tolstoy's War and Peace carries off the literary honours ! it's quickly apparent that the Russian-born author Paullina Simons has the measure of this kind of epic romantic saga ! She is able to make some powerful statements about the durability of the human spirit, but never at the expense of descriptive passages refulgent with power and beauty' Barry Forshaw, Amazon Praise for Tully 'Pick up this book and prepare to have your emotions wrung so completely you'll be sobbing your heart out one minute and laughing through your tears the next.! Read it and weep -- literally' Company
