New York Times Bestselling and Award-Winning Author

Kim Hendricks is American, a legendary war reporter and celebrated novelist, a daring big game hunter, glamorous and romantic, but tragically flawed.

Nicole Redon is French, a talented fashion designer whose shocking designs influence women around the world. She is beautiful, charming, lonely, haunted.

Destiny brings them together but will fate–and the tides of history–tear them apart?

Kim confronts a devastating tragedy. Nicole guards a desperate secret. They meet by chance and pursue their star-crossed romance in New York and Paris, on safari in Africa, in glamorous resorts on the French Riviera and the savage blood-drenched front lines of two world wars.

Here’s what the reviewers have to say:

An extremely captivating, tenderly written story of love, life and all the struggles involved therin! The historical context is compelling and the conflict between agony and ecstasy is gripping! Harris weaves an intriguing tale using the two great wars to bookend the lives of a cadre of characters from a various walks of life in America and abroad!

*******

This was a really good read and so well written. Loved the interconnection of their relationship and the actual world happenings. Ruth Harris developed her characters beautifully. Truly a tragic love story.

*******

This is a fascinating look, through an enduring love affair, of the years between WWI and WWII. The world of wild excess in Paris and New York, the world of fashion houses and superstar writers, the effects of the stock market Crash. It’s a wild ride, but well worth the trip.

*******

I have yet to be disappointed by Ruth Harris’s books. Great, thorough research makes her plots seem so real I must keep telling myself that it is fiction. I can’t put her books down but feel so sad when it ends. I’m never ready!

*******

I was riveted with this story. This s the first novel I have read that put me in the midle of the history of both the 1st and 2nd world wars. I love history. I realize this is a book of fiction, but I felt like she had done extensive background check before she wrote it. What a great book. I can see it as a movie.

About The Author

Ruth Harris is a New York Times and Amazon bestselling author and a Romantic Times award winner for “best contemporary.” Her emotional, entertaining novels have been praised by critics and sold millions of copies in hard cover, paperback, and ebook editions. They were prominent selections of leading book clubs including the Literary Guild and the Book Of The Month Club.

Ruth writes about strong, savvy, witty women—and the men in their lives. Critics have compared Ruth to Nora Ephron and Joan Didion and called her books “brilliant,” “steamy,” “stylishly written,” ”richly plotted,” “first-class entertainment,” “absolutely perfect,” and “a sure thing.”

No surprise that Ruth is a writer. She grew up in a house filled with books, magazines and newspapers. Her Mom was an RN who had a trove of big-city hospital stories—some funny, some sad, some touching—and told them with great verve and style. Her Dad, noted for the beautiful gardens he created, loved words, word play and language, and he is remembered by those who knew him as “always reading.”

As a girl, Ruth wanted to be a professional ice skater. In her teens, she wanted to be a lawyer—a summer job in a law office cured her of that delusion! After college, she got a beginner’s job in publishing and her career path—first as an editor and then as a writer—was set.

Ruth lives in New York City with her husband, Michael, author of two bestselling memoirs, THE ATOMIC TIMES: My H-Bomb Year at the Pacific Proving Ground and ALWAYS ON SUNDAY: An Inside View of Ed Sullivan, the Beatles, Elvis, Sinatra & Ed’s Other Guests. Both are available in ebook editions.
