The Secret History of the Pink Carnation

by Lauren Willig Nov. 6 7:00 pm Tarbell Room

Romance and suspense drive this historical novel that includes a contemporary story with an early 19th-century twist. An American doctoral candidate, Eloise, starts the ball rolling when she shows up in modern day London intent on doing research on Richard Selwick, an English spy called the Pink Carnation during the Napoleonic Wars. Luckily, Eloise is given access to Selwick's papers by his descendant, Arabella. As Eloise reads the papers she discovers a complicated romance that develops when Richard meets Amy Balcourt, a young woman who becomes the spy called the Purple Gentian. Together Richard and Amy are out to foil Napoleon Bonaparte. While Richard wants to protect England, Amy wants to avenge the death of her father, who was sent to the guillotine in France. In the midst of her research, Eloise runs into objections from another Selwick relative, an attractive man named Colin, seeking to protect the family's privacy. Of course, romance allows Eloise to continue her research and complete Richard and Amy's story.   Books & Authors
