About this title

Synopsis:

Piers Paul Read's most successful work of fiction to date was an historical novel set during the Second World War, THE FREE FRENCHMAN. This new novel, in a similar vein, is a love story set in England, France and Russia, played out against the turbulent backdrop of the First World War. Full of moral and emotional conflict, this is the story of a strong, independent-minded woman caught between two men, and of lovers forced apart by their different social backgrounds and the terrible circumstances of war.

From the Back Cover:

"Alice in Exile is profoundly conventional, absolutely old-fashioned, and I confess to having missed a highly advertised fiesta in a Mexican mountain town just so I could stay in the hotel and find out what happened, from 1913 to 1920, to Alice Fry, her ninny upper-class English lover, Edward Cobb, and her aristocratic Russian protector, Pavel Rettenberg, who ends up being the love of her life." --Carolyn See, Washington Post

"Finally, a heroine you can love and remember. . . . It is actually difficult to put the book down. . . . This is a book of great compassion, lively dialogue and fine romance. You leave the feast feeling stirred and contented." --Houston Chronicle

"Few writers bring the past to life as vividly as Piers Paul Read. . . . Anyone who has enjoyed the best novels of Sebastian Faulks or William Boyd will love this one, and probably find it even better. . . . Utterly gripping. It couldn't be better told." --The Scotsman (U.K.)
