Présentation de l'éditeur

A novel of consummate dramatic sweep and emotional force, BIRTHRIGHT is the story of a father and daughter locked in a bitter contest for control of the world's most legendary banking house and of the two men, entangled in her past, whom she loves. Historical, romantic fiction that leaves the reader spellbound.
Publisher's Weekly says: "Deborah de Kronengold, heroine of Amiel's operatic novel of love, avarice and international high finance, is bound to thrill readers of popular fiction....Amiel has produced a novel on a grand scale."
Reared in the splendid excess of her family's London home and country estate; blessed with beauty and a precocious intelligence that has already captured the eye of her empire-building grandfather, Deborah de Kronenegold has everything, or so it seems. But her childhood equilibrium is shattered when she discovers that she is adopted, and when she becomes the object of her father Leslie's malevolence. Upon the deaths of her grandfather Samuel and her lovely and ill-fated mother Madeleine--and the mysterious disappearance of the will naming Deborah Samuel's principal heir--Leslie sets in motion a series of shocking and irrevocable events. Deborah is turned out, and with nothing but her resolve to claim her birthright, she moves to New York and starts to build a financial empire to rival her father's--and to bring him down.
BIRTHIGHT is a constellation of passionate love stores: there is Bash, Deborah's first and continuing love, whose heritage forbids him what he most desires; and David, who offers Deborah wealth and security and adoration--but at a terrible price. Finally, there is the story of another love affair--set in distant war-torn Italy, which unlocks the secret of Deborah's birthright.
As played out against the glamorous world of international finance, and set in the boardrooms of London, Paris, and New York, in sumptuous townhouses, chateaus, and penthouses, and in Italy and in in modern Israel, BIRTHRIGHT cuts a grand and satisfying swath. It is a triumph of the unexpected that will hold the reader captivated right up to its surprising conclusion. Or, as one newspaper raved, "Exciting and compelling entertainment...nearly impossible to put down."

Birthright is the story of a daughter raised in privilege by a wealthy banking family only to learn that she is adopted and her father is intent on destroying her heritage. Although their bitter dispute spans decades, the story is beautifully portrayed to include passionate love stories, betrayal, the mysterious disappearance of a will and ultimately the secret of her past divulged. Birthright is a page-turner that will keep you captivated.

HASH(0x97fe9a14) étoiles sur 5 One of the best fiction books I've ever read! 5 juillet 2014

I read this book way back in the 1980s, twice, and loved it. Unfortunately, in the process of moving it was lost and I despaired of ever finding it again because I couldn't remember the name of it. All I had to do was Google Deborah de Kronengold and, voila, I found that Amazon had it on Kindle! Wonderful book,wonderful story, and the best part is that in the end the person who was wronged had the last laugh, in the best way. It is on of my all-time favorites!
HASH(0x983982b8) étoiles sur 5 LOVED IT - EXCEPT FOR A FEW PARTS... 4 juin 2013

With over 1,500 books still to read in my Kindle library, it often takes considerable time just deciding on my next book.
However, the synopsis of this book grabbed me immediately and once begun, I had to force myself to put it down late every night for 4 nights in a row until I had finished it! It was longer than most fiction books published these days but I was thrilled about that. Most books end too quickly for me - I love to 'sink my teeth in' and spend at least a few evenings with the characters before I say goodbye.

Superbly well-written, and exceptionally well-researched.
Exciting, intriguing, highly suspenseful and unputdownable - except when you just have to get some sleep! It was also very well edited and put together which I always appreciate.

However, there were several "sex scenes" that I personally did not enjoy reading and felt were too (and unnecessarily) explicit for a book I found listed under the Religious Fiction section.
But, the story itself was so good, I simply "rapid-read" (skimmed) over those parts and continued with the rest.

Usually when I don't enjoy certain sections in a book or they go against my religious beliefs, I do not write a review, but this story was otherwise so good and so well-written that I felt it deserved 5 stars regardless.
