LOL: The Vicissitudes of Evangeline
The Vicissitudes of Evangeline was published in September 1977 and was written by Elinor Glyn and condensed by Barbara Cartland. Evangeline Travers bursts into society at age 20 and with no family or title determined to become an adventuress. She falls in love with Lord Robert, a brother to a duke, and the fun begins!
Francis Marshall illustrates our couple on a park bench. They are smartly dressed and are in love. The heroine is pretty in black with an adorable hat and muff. Our hero is dapper as an Edwardian hero should be! I wish the title wasn't over the couple so we could see more of their elegant dress. Oh well!
