For the time being she raised her eyes and looked into Lord Bracondale's, and something told her they were the nicest eyes she had ever seen in this world.

Then when a voluble French count had rushed up, with garrulous apologies for being late, the party was complete, and they swept into the restaurant.

Theodora sat between the Western millionaire and the Russian Prince, but beyond--it was a round table, only just big enough to hold them--came her hostess and Lord Bracondale, and two or three times at dinner they spoke, and very often she felt his eyes fixed upon her.

****.

The title of this book refers to the river Lethe in Greek mythology--those who drink of it experience forgetfulness of all memories. But for the heroine, oblivion seems unattainable beyond the rocks...

This novel is about a young girl who is sold into a high society marriage and knows nothing of love until she meets a dashing philanderer. The ensuing story focuses on their romance and struggle to take the moral high ground.

While this book does not reach the emotional or intellectual depths of novels such as Wharton's "Age of Innocence," and is slighty predictable at times, nevertheless it is an enjoyable read.
