Csardasby Diane Pearson

This great bestseller was compared with GONE WITH THE WIND when first published in 1975. CSARDAS – taken from the name of the Hungarian national dance – follows the fortunes of the enchanting Ferenc sisters from their glittering beginnings in aristocratic Hungary, through the traumas of two World Wars.

From the dazzling elegance of coming-out balls, feudal estates and a culture steeped in romance, to terror and starvation in the concentration camps – no story could be more dramatic than that of Eva and Amalia Ferenc, whose fate it is to be debutantes when the shot which killed Archduke Franz Ferdinand in Sarajevo plunged Europe into the First World War. Their story is enthralling, tragic, romantic – and absolutely unputdownable.

Diane Pearson wrote three novels before her great breakout bestseller, CSARDAS. She was for many years President of the Romantic Novelists Association. She lives in South London.
