Secrets of the Heart
Secrets of the Heart is #55 in the Camfield series and was published in March 1988. Zenobia Chade is under the control of her evil stepmother after her father's death and runs away! She finds a job as a secretary to the Earl of Ockendon but can she really stay hidden?
This is a colorful and pretty cover of our couple standing and comforting each other at the bottom of an elegant stairway. I'm assuming that the lady on the floor is the evil stepmother, since only the butler is helping her! The heroine's yellow bustle dress dominates this cover with its color and ornateness.
I'm glad that Barbara Cartland kept most of her stories in the 1800-1900 time frame. She knew her history and the glimpses of fashion and society from then is very interesting.
