The second of Jean Plaidy's flamboyant French Revolution series. No longer the well-beloved, Louis XV is becoming ever more unpopular - the huge expense of his court and decades of costly warfare having taken their toll. As the discontent grows, Louis seeks refuge in his extravagances and his mistress, the powerful Marquise de Pompadour. Suspicions, plots and rivalry are rife as Louis's daughters and lovers jostle for his attention and their own standing at Court. Ignoring the unrest in Paris, Louis continues to indulge in frivolities. But how long will Paris stay silent when the death of the Marquise de Pompadour leads to yet another mistress influencing the King?

Zwei Erzählungen, zwei historische Ereignisse und eine Familiengeschichte: Ein Dolmetscher lernt 1918 in der Ukraine die junge jüdische Pianistin Nadjeschda und ihre Familie kennen und wird später Zeuge der Waffenstillstandsverhandlungen im Wald von Compiègne, deren beklemmende Atmosphäre er in seinem Tagebuch festhält. Eine Generation später erlebt Nadjeschdas Tochter Rebecca eine der größten Flutkatastrophen des 20. Jahrhunderts mit und berichtet ihrer Tochter davon in einer sehr persönlichen Erzählung. Beide Geschichten sind nicht nur spannende Erzählungen geschichtlicher Ereignisse, sondern sie zeigen auch, wie historische Entwicklungen und die Lebensgeschichte der Figuren mit all ihren emotionalen Konflikten untrennbar miteinander verbunden sind. Two stories, two historical events, and the history of a family: In 1918, an interpreter gets to know young Jewish pianist Nadezhda and her family in the Ukraine. Later, he witnesses the armistice negotiations in the forest of Compiègne, whose oppressive atmosphere he describes in his diary. One generation later, Nadezhda's daughter Rebecca experiences one of the largest flood catastrophes of the 20th century and tells her daughter about it in a very personal account. Both stories are not only thrilling tales of historical events, but they also show how historical developments and the stories of the characters' lives with all their emotional conflicts are inseparably linked.
