About the Author

Elizabeth Buchan lives in London with her husband and two children and worked in publishing for several years. During this time, she wrote her first books, which included a biography for children- <i>Beatrix Potter- The Story of the Creator of Peter Rabbit</i> (Frederick Warne). Her first novel for adults, <i>Daughters of the Storm</i>, was set during the French Revolution. Her second, <i>Light of the Moon</i>, took as its subject a female undercover agent operating in occupied France during the Second World War. Her third novel, <i>Consider the Lily</i>, described by the <i>Sunday Times</i> as 'the literary equivalent of the English country garden' and by the <i>Independent</i> as 'a gorgeously well-written tale- funny, sad, sophisticated', won the 1994 Romantic Novel of the Year Award. An international bestseller, there are over 320,000 copies in print in the UK. Her subsequent novel, <i>Perfect Love</i>, was described as 'a powerful story- wise, observant, deeply-felt, with elements that all women will recognize with a smile – or a shudder'. <i>Against Her Nature</i>, published in 1998, was described as 'a modern day <i>Vanity Fair</i> . . . brilliantly done', and <i>Secrets of the Heart</i> was praised by the <i>Mail on Sunday</i> as 'a finely written, highly intelligent romance, without any of the slushiness usually associated with the genre'. <i>Revenge of the Middle-Aged</i>
