The Perfection of Love
The Perfection of Love is #122 in the Bantam series and was published in June 1980. It is the story of Darcia, who leaves the convent in which she has been educated to join her father. Once in London, she remembers a young man who used to visit her father's house and finds out that he's rebuilding his house after a fire. How Darcia meets this Earl and they fall in love is the plot of this romantic story!
Francis Marshall shows our couple at a picnic. I like her 1880's dress with the bustle, tight vest, and pert hat! Note the picnic hamper and plaid blanket. Our hero wears a brown jacket which is typical of the era. Click on the picture to see a full view.
