Desire of the Heart
Desire of the Heart is an Arrow (UK) publication and my copy is from 1970. This story is about Cornelia, who is pushed into marriage with her aunt's lover, the Duke of Roehampton. It is a tale of life during Edwardian times, before World War 1.
Francis Marshall illustrates our couple at a fancy restaurant where they are formally dressed and enjoying an expensive meal. Our heroine is beautiful in a plumed headdress and full, low cut blue gown. I think it's interesting that she wears only one glove! Our hero is very handsome and intent on his date. Definitely a glamorous cover that I hope you enjoy!
