Abandoned pregnant and penniless on the teeming streets of London, 16-year-old Amber St. Clare manages, by using her wits, beauty, and courage, to climb to the highest position a woman could achieve in Restoration England-that of favorite mistress of the Merry Monarch, Charles II. From whores and highwaymen to courtiers and noblemen, from events such as the Great Plague and the Fire of London to the intimate passions of ordinary-and extraordinary-men and women, Amber experiences it all. But throughout her trials and escapades, she remains, in her heart, true to the one man she really loves, the one man she can never have. Frequently compared to Gone with the Wind, Forever Amber is the other great historical romance, outselling every other American novel of the 1940s-despite being banned in Boston for its sheer sexiness. A book to read and reread, this edition brings back to print an unforgettable romance and a timeless masterpiece.

Forever Amber
August 20th, 2014
Good read if you like The White Queen and The Other Boleyn. Read this book many years ago, but am glad to have an opportunity to read it again. She' definitely not a heroine to me. Very feisty, self absorbed and willful. Kind of like Scarlett O'Hara. This story takes place during the Restoration period in mid 17th century. After Oliver Cromwell's where dancing, drinking and most types of entertainment were banned, people went overboard in all types of enjoyment. I would definitely recommend it if you enjoy an epic love story set in an exciting time in history.
