AbstractHistoryArchive Description

Tragic romance set in rural England between beautiful Eleanor Dalgleish and Lawrence Hilliand, son of an English doctor and a Spanish-Mexican mother. A betrothal ring from an heirloom cross of gold and opals is pronounced bad luck by friends - and when Lawrence disappears on the wedding day it seems true. Eleanor finally discovers Lawrence's body in a disused well - and dies herself within the year. Odd mixture of the exotic, the continental and the gothic; competently written. (PB)
