Alvina, whose father is arranging her marriage to a newcomer in their neighborhood, decides to stow away on a yacht that is traveling to France to stay with a friend.

This cover is identical to The Bars of Iron by Ethel M. Dell, one of Cartland's Library of Love series. http://barbaracartlandbooksandcoverart.blogspot.com/2010/05/lol-bars-of-iron.htmll

An interesting observation is that this heroine looks a lot like Princess Diana, even though the original book was published way before her engagement and wedding to Prince Charles.
