AbstractHistoryArchive Description

Romance set in England and on a barren island. A storm separates lovers when Reginald Lawrence's yacht fails to return and he is believed dead. Lucy Belgrave's father, Sir Anthony, had refused to allow them to marry and some months after pressures Lucy to marry young rich Lord Bramleigh. Meanwhile Reginald has recovered from a fever on the island where he and his one surviving companion were castaway - they are rescued - and it is he who appears as Lord B. to woo Lucy. Overblown plot, light little romance. (PB)
