AbstractHistoryArchive Description

Anglo-American romance. Two businessmen, both disappointed in their first loves, informally arrange for their children to marry when they grow up. Years later their offspring learn of the arrangement, neither of them being enthusiastic. Headstrong American Rose Aylmer suffers a 'disappointment in love' and during a summer holiday meets Max Gillette who believes she is someone else. Only after she accepts his proposal does he reveal he knew her identity all the time. Surprising conclusion. (PB)
