The saga continues
Through the fascinating lives of the Lytton family, the saga of the 20th century plays out in Penny Vincenzi's new epic, Something Dangerous. Reared in the power and grandeur of the Lytton publishing business, identical twins Adele and Venetia launch into a world that starts to spin out of control as World War II approaches. Pampered through their luxurious upbringing, the cold world now invades their lives. Nazi power is rising in Europe, threatening the ordered aristocratic ease they'd taken as their due. While politics and war swirl around the Lytton generations, schisms develop between the New York and United Kingdom branches of the family that threaten the very existence of the publishing empire. Through the lives of this unforgettable, indomitable family, Penny Vincenzi brings to vibrant and compelling reality the forces, epic and intimate, that shook the world during these dark times. Sandy Huseby writes and reviews from her homes in Fargo, North Dakota, and lakeside in northern Minnesota.
