Interesting. I checked Worldcat and didn't find any library anywhere that had it. I'll wait for you ;)
At home with a good book and the cat...
...is the only place I want to be

My issue with Forever Amber is the character's enduring infatuation with Bruce Carlton. Amber is a selfish infuriating woman at times, much like Scarlett O'Hara. But you find yourself wanting her to succeed.
But her long winded pursuit of a man who didn't care for her infuriated me.

And also, Bruce is no Rhett Butler.

The most interesting male character in Forever Amber for me, was Charles II. Winsor didn't gloss over his portrayal, yet he held my attention more than the others.
