A sweeping, sun-drenched love story from the original Queen of Romance, first published in 1969 and now available for the first time in eBook.
When pretty young Lucie Gresham takes a job as companion to the mother of rich shipping magnate, Adrian Ollivent, she also realises her long-held wish to visit the beautiful island of Cyprus.
Lucie finds the island as enchanting as she had hoped, and Mrs Ollivent a pleasant and kindly old lady, but also finds herself falling in love with Adrian. He is not a happy man and displays little affection towards her, so Lucie determines to discover what has made him this way. She finds much pain and unhappiness has to be endured before the complete truth is finally exposed.
