A Dream from the Night

A Dream from the Night is #47 in the Bantam series and was published in September 1976. It is the story of Olinda Selwyn, who is restoring the embroidered tapestries at the home of the Duchess of Kelvedon. Her mother feels that this is a safe employment position for her, but she is wrong when the duchess's lover begans to pay marked attention to her. Who will come and help her?

Francis Marshall paints a beautiful cover with our couple outside in the moonlight with the big house in the background. This book is set in 1898 and our heroine is dressed in a Gibson Girl hairdo and slim dress. The hero wears a formal evening dress, which would have been customary for dinner.
