Freckles by Gene Stratton Porter is #26 in Barbara Cartland's Library of Love condensed book series and was published in December 1978. Freckles is a woodsman in the Limberlost forest and falls in love with a girl he meets there he calls the Angel!
Francis Marshall illustrates a beautiful cover with our rugged hero and our beautiful heroine. He is handsome and ruddy while she is petite and exquisite. I love them sitting on the ground with the background of the forest behind them. She wears a torn blue dress and a straw hat sits on the ground. I love that he carries a saw on his belt!
