Kim Pinkston | 2 comments Greetings!
My mother had a book in her bookcase that I can remember from the 1970's and maybe even earlier. I believe it was a mystery/romance/suspense type fiction novel. It was hardback and about 1.5 inches thick. I would dearly love to find and read it to her now that she is ill.
Can anyone remember book with perhaps Gypsies, and a grandmother who gives her granddaughter the recipe for black hair dye. There may have been an abbey or large house that the granddaughter goes to live in after she gets married. I think the granddaughter's beautiful appearance captures a man's interest (the home owner presumably) I'm so very sorry I can't remember more. Does this ring a bell with anyone?

Many thanks,

Jennifer Jenkins | 77 comments It sounds rather like a Victoria Holt novel, possibly The Legend of the Seventh Virgin.

So glad. I thought it sounded like one of Victoria Holt's. I read loads of them in the 70's. Usually they are set in Cornwall. I thought it could be the Virgins one or The Bride of Pendorric. Hope you enjoy it. Regards, Jenny.
