Although I did not read this author's first book entitled The Little Book, I have to say that his second publication, The Lost Prince, is not a success. The book is very poorly written, filled with run-on sentences and badly constructed sentences. Some books, which are the result of an author's imagination, often have plots which are not based on reality. However, a good author manages to make the story line plausible even though it delves into the realm of fantasy. Eleanor, the main character, is a strong individual but what happens to her is difficult to believe : a close friendship with Freud and Carl Yung seem highly improbable. Her secret life in which makes millions while keeping the whole thing from her husband, is even more difficult to comprehend! I cannot recommend this book.

One of the best books i have read. I loved the previous book The Little Book but this was even better. It is a very satisfying read which combines history, and a good story line. I especially loved the author's description of how war affects human psyche!!!
