"American heiress Delia Chandler leaves Virginia to marry Viscount Ivor Conisborough, unprepared for her new place within the royal circle. Soon she is holding dinner parties for Winston Churchill and Wallis Simpson and attending glittering balls with Prince Edward. But beneath the dazzling facade, Delia quickly discovers a world steeped in scandal. It seems everyone has a secret, including her husband." "When Ivor is sent to Cairo and appointed advisor to King Fuad, Delia must follow with her two daughters. Like their mother, Petra and Davina are fiery beauties who long to escape the elegant and palatial villas of Garden City for the exotic, wild, beating heart of Cairo. But their desires will lead them into dangerous territory, shattering their world as they know it, forever." --Book Jacket.

Like reading Nancy Mitford's Love in A Cold Climate--descriptions are interesting, but I found it very difficult to empathize w. the characters, esp. the younger ones. Very well constructed, however.
