  • "Deux soeurs australiennes, orphelines, s'expatrient en Angleterre. Très dissemblables, elles mènent des existences opposées. Grace, blonde à la beauté classique, épouse un homme de la meilleure société et mène une vie dorée, parfaitement conventionnelle. Caroline, brune éclatante, quant à elle, connaît une liaison tumultueuse avec Paul Ivory, un célèbre dramaturge."
  • "This book tells the story of two orphan sisters, Caroline and Grace Bell, as they leave Australia to start a new life in post-war England. What happens to these young women--seduction and abandonment, marriage and widowhood, love and betrayal--becomes as moving and wonderful and yet as predestined as the transits of the planets themselves. Gorgeously written and intricately constructed, Hazzard's novel is a story of place: Sydney, London, New York, Stockholm; of time: from the fifties to the eighties; and above all, of women and men in their passage through the displacements and absurdities of modern life."
