Four decades after their passionate and forbidden love affair, Bryan receives an urgent summons from Giulia, descendant of the ancient house of the Farnese di Mongrifone. The couple is plunged into a maelstrom of intrigue and danger, uncovering a closely guarded secret. On Bryan Cavanagh's birthday, a sealed letter from Rome arrives, bearing the arms of the ancient house of the Farnese di Mongrifone. Affectionate, even imperious, it is a summons from the woman he loved-and lost-in the turbulent, opportunistic world of postwar Europe. Beset by his memories of an extraordinary voyage on a private yacht on the Mediterranean forty years earlier, Bryan returns to Rome, where he discovers a closely guarded secret. In The Lovers, Morris West spins a glowing thread of love lost and regained, woven through a rich tapestry of intrigue, betrayal, suspense and murder. 'West is indisputably one of the world's greatest storytellers.' Telegraph Mirror 'The old master has lost none of his way with words.' Daily Express

Excerpt from The Corsican Lovers: A Story of the Vendetta "You have no right, Pascal, to command me to marry a man whom I do not love." The speaker was a young girl not more than eighteen years of age. As she spoke, the flashing of her eyes and her clenched hands betokened the intensity of her feelings. The person to whom the words were addressed was a man of about forty. He was smooth-shaven, and the black, shaggy eyebrows which met above the bridge of his nose, gave to his face a stem and almost forbidding expression. He did not reply to his sisters impassioned words for some time, but sat, apparently unconcerned, tapping lightly on the library table with the fingers of his right hand. At last he spoke: "I do not command you, Vivienne; all I ask is that you will comply with your fathers dying wish." "How do you know that it was his dying wish? He was dead when found, stabbed to the heart, as you told me, by Manuel Delia Coscia - that brave Corsican who ran away to escape the vengeance he so well deserved." The man looked up approvingly. "My sister, that was spoken like a true Batistelli. If you loved your father, as your words seem to indicate, I do not see how you can disobey his slightest wish."
