LOL: The Sheik
Beginning today, we will feature Barbara Cartland's Library of Love. These are books that are favorites of Cartland's and that she condensed for her audience. Francis Marshall illustrated 27 of them and we will feature them in the next blog entries.
The Sheik by E. M. Hull is about a beautiful Englishwoman and the handsome Sheik who wins her love. This story was first published in 1921 and the condensed version came out in March 1977.
Francis Marshall illustrates beautifully our desert couple! We see them in a tent, lying on pillows in a tent. Our hero is in Arabian garb and the heroine is in a green gauze garment. It's a romantic scene and I hope that you enjoy this cover!
