New York City, 1894. To Gramercy Park, bordered by elegant town houses, cloistered behind its high iron fence, comes Mario Alfieri, a celebrated tenor and the toast of Europe. Poised for his premier at the Metropolitan Opera, the summit of society, Alfieri needs a refuge from the clamor of New York's elite . . . and from the eager women who rule it. He finds it, he thinks, at Gramercy Park, in the elegant mansion of the recently deceased Henry Ogden Slade. The house is available, but notquite empty. Clara Adler, Slade's former ward, lives there still, friendless and alone. Who is this bewitching young woman? Why did Slade take her into his home, only to leave her penniless at his death? And what tragedies and terrors have left Clara little more than a pale and frightened ghost, haunting the deserted mansion? Mystified, then enchanted, Alfieri is soon involved in an intrigue that spans two decades and pits him against a vicious enemy who swears to destroy both him and the woman he loves . . . and whose weapons are scandal, murder, and the revelations of Clara's past...… (mer)

Because this audio book was part of the Audible Escape romance package, I shouldn't have been surprised that it was too much a romance for me. Instant love. Woebegone damsels in distress. It read like a Victorian overwrought novel. It was melodramatic and most improbably. Nevertheless, it was a somewhat satisfying read if you are in a Victorian romance mood but don't want to go for the real stuff. The Audible version narration was good except for extremely short breaks between chapter, and that was rather confusing. ( )

Very enjoyable read. Wonderful depiction of upper-class NY society in the 1880s. The hero is a world famous opera tenor and the whole book has the feel of an opera libretto! Whilst it is basically a romance, the book covers many more controversial topics such as child abuse, anti-semitism etc. ( )

This is a wonderful tale of a great, feted, Italian tenor and a reclusive,frightened young woman who is haunted by her past. It was set lushly in new York's Gilded Age.

Heroes, ingeneus, villians, this book has them all!

It was probably too cliché for many, while the hero should have been more flawed and the villian should have had some kind of saving grace. However, I ate it up! I loved it! I think I really enjoyed the comfort of the predictablity and familiarity that such a story provides. ( )

Very interesting until the end, when things wrap up too easily. Mystery story of a young girl living in her guardian's house. He dies and it's discovered that a man named Chadwick wants her, but an Italian opera singer gets her instead, setting off a tale of revenge and background trauma. ( )
