Your future lies further off....It lies beyond a mountain of ice where you will die and live again.To Mary Cooke, journeying to become a servant at Whitwell Hall, these words from a weird wisewoman along the way meant little. Although this was 1911MoreYour future lies further off....It lies beyond a mountain of ice where you will die and live again.To Mary Cooke, journeying to become a servant at Whitwell Hall, these words from a weird wisewoman along the way meant little. Although this was 1911—and even on the Isle of Wight, smoke from the long liners traveling to America blackened the horizon, and a sense of the bustling future was elbowing aside the Victorian past—her own future in domestic service seemed set.She did not reckon, however, with the willful and whirlwind force of her young mistress Amanda Whitwell, who began by rechristening her Miranda.

From there Amanda went on to decree her duties as a kind of double, and to determine the man she would love, her marriage, and her destiny across the sea.Amanda—spirited, beautiful, manipulative, restless, and lustful- Miranda—awakening, dutiful, desiring, determined, and finally vengeful: these two locked in uncanny resemblance are the yin and yang, the upstairs and downstairs of a novel as romantic as the Edwardian twilight and as fated as the passengers who embark from Southampton for New York on a certain April morning in 1912.In Amanda/Miranda Richard Peck achieves that miraculous rarity—a novel that draws past into present, and modern readers into a world they thought beyond recall.
