The Golden Gondola
The Golden Gondola is an exciting story about Paolina, who is half English and half Italian. She survives a shipwreck along with Sir Harvey Drake, an English adventurer who decides to help Paolina find a husband in Venice by her posing as his sister. They run into many adventures before realizing that they love each other!
Francis Marshall creates an exquisite cover for this book. Our couple are dressed in the ornate style of the 1750's, which is very elaborate and decorated. Maybe they are going to a ball. Our heroine holds a mask and fan while the hero carries a walking stick. The gondola is fancy and may belong to an important Venetian. It's a unique cover and I hope that you enjoy it!
