Little White Doves of Love

Little White Doves of Love is #121 in the Bantam series and was published in May 1980. It is the story of Nolita Walford, who is left penniless after the death of her parents. Her aunt finds a job as a companion to the Marquis of Sarle's 12 year old daughter. How she helps a surly girl and her impatient father is the plot of this story by Cartland.

Francis Marshall illustrates our couple outside at a lake when the heroine is teaching the girl how to fish. Our heroine wears a white muslin bustle gown, which was popular in the 1880's. Note the pink dress and sash which the girl wears. Our hero is handsome in riding dress. It's a pretty and tranquil place. An unusual cover by Marshall!
