Introduction

(The French eventually unmasked the famed spies in the Napoleonic war, the Scarlet Pimpernel and the Purple Gentian, but as Harvard graduate student Eloise Kelly discovers at the start of this breezy historical romance, the identity of the Pink Carnation remains a mystery. Setting off for England to finish her dissertation, Eloise discovers something historians missed: the secret history of the Pink Carnation ¨Dthe most elusive spy of all times. A chance discovery of the Selwick family archives launches her into the middle of a true story in 1803, and complications, disguises, romance, and danger ensue.

Description in Spanish: La joven Eloisa Nelly se encuentra en Londres con una beca, preparando una tesis sobre los rom¨¢nticos esp¨ªas ingleses de finales del XVIII: La Pimpinela Escarlata, La Genciana P¨²rpura y El Clavel Carmes¨ª. Mientras que la identidad de los dos primeros se conoce, la del Clavel, que salva Inglaterra de la invasi¨®n de Napole¨®n, sigue siendo un misterio. Convencida de que guarda una relaci¨®n con la familia Selwick, descendiente de la Genciana P¨²rpura Eloisa descubre un diario in¨¦dito en el que se cuenta la fascinante historia de Amy Balcourt y sus amores con la Genciana.
