A young woman's heart is torn between two men in this compelling British historical romance novel from the author of The Silver Locket. England, 1960s. On her first day at Oxford University, Lily Denham meets Harry Gale and Max Farley, two fellow undergraduates who are full of mischievous charm. The three students become firm friends, exploring everything Oxford has to offer, from riotous parties to sailing the river Thames on sunny afternoons. But their innocent fun get complicated when Lily starts falling for both men. Harry is generous and kind, reliable and trustworthy. Max embodies the spirit of the sixties: adventurous, rebellious, and a little bit dangerous . . . As university ends and Lily struggles to make her mark on the vibrant fashion scene, she must make a decision that could have devastating consequences for all of their futures. A moving story forged in the bonds of friendship, The Girl in Red Velvet is a novel that proves there's more than one way to love someone.
