The Leaping Flame
The Leaping Flame is an Arrow (UK) publication from 1973. This story by Barbara Cartland is set during WW2 and is about Mona, a young girl who left home to have a love affair, which she thought she had kept secret. But secrets have a way of coming into the light and she finds that maybe she could love Michael, the local squire, after all. What will he say when all her secrets are revealed?
Francis Marshall shows our couple in a living room dressed formally. Our heroine is pretty in a bright yellow dress and emerald jewelry! Our hero is dashing and handsome as he is proposing? I like the bowl of orchids on the table and the green sofa which seems to accentuate the heroine. Enjoy!
