A novel about a woman who, while on a newspaper assignment in Italy, meets a handsome, mysterious Dane and marries him without knowing much about him--which might prove to be a bad thing. 1967.

I think I'm abandoning this one. It wasn't bad, it just had too much foreshadowing and the action severely stalled out. One of those plots that stall so much, you find yourself losing interest in the characters. More die-hard Dorothy Eden or gothic romance fans might make it through this, but as they say, life's too short...you know?

If you have your heart set on trying a Dorothy Eden novel, I'd recommend An Important Family. It's the first of hers I've successfully made it through yet. And it's great! Review here.
