The Power and the Prince
The Power and the Prince is #118 in the Bantam series and was published in March 1980. It is the story of Alana, who has been working at the vicarage after the death of her father. She is persuaded by a neighbor to attend a house party in order to save her friend from an arranged marriage to Prince Ivan! How everything works out is the plot of this great romance by Barbara Cartland!
Francis Marshall shows our couple after she has beautifully played the violin. Our hero dries her tears while holding her close. It's a striking cover with both in black and the piano and violin prominent. I love her bustle dress which was fashionable in the 1870's.
