Day 12 of the 30 day book talk..

A book you used to love but don't any more

 Forever Amber by Kathleen Winsor

Forever Amber

Somewhere in the mid 1970's,  when I first read Forever Amber, I loved this romantic and slightly risquรฉ restoration romp. Written in 1944, this story of a good girl made bad, became a global sensation and yet because of its salacious content was actually banned in parts of the United States. I remember sneaking my mother's copy and unknown to her, read the book in bed by the light of my torch, whilst listening to radio Luxenbourg on my transistor radio !

I am sure that my love of Restoration historical novels started with Forever Amber -

When I re- read the book recently - I was perhaps a little more disappointed that the initial enjoyment had been marred by time...
