Barbara Devane, the beautiful girl who became one of the best-loved heroines in popular American fiction, is now a widow of twenty, emotionally devastated and financially ruined by the death of her husband in scandalous circumstances. Yet as Barbara struggles to develop a family tobacco plantation in colonial Virginia, she rediscovers herself and learns she has the strength and integrity to create a different kind of life. Returning to London, she confronts her enemies, and she pursues there a deeply satisfying yet dangerous clandestine love. Like "Through a Glass Darkly", "Now Face to Face" sweeps readers away into the suspense, intrigue, and grandeur of a lost era - and into the sensuous and sophisticated lives of a vast and vivid cast of characters, at the center of which is the passionate, unforgettable Barbara Devane.

'Two years after the South Sea Bubble of 1719 the English aristocracy is reeling from financial loss. Robert Walpole is desperately trying to cull enough evidence to hang the Biship of Rochester, ringleader of the latest Jacobite threat against the Hanoverian crown. It is a world of intrigue, unrest, mistrust, gossip, duelling and scandal. And in its midst is the beautiful young Barbara Montgeoffry, Countess Devane, widow of a disgraced South Sea Director, daughter and sister of Jacobit traitors. Caught between two scandals and having secured herself a position as Lady-in-Waiting to George I's grand-daughters, she takes the most daring step of all - a Jacobite lover. It is a passion that transcends politics, defies bounds and threatens both their lives.'
