Victoria Holt died in January 1993.From Library Journal:
Written in 1972, and narrated lyrically here by Virginia Leishman, this book seems typical of that age, when girls were still brought up on the saccharinized fairy tales "Sleeping Beauty" and "Cinderella." From the moment Helena is rescued from the forest mists by a young horseman, her heart is held captive by this mysterious young man. In any but a gifted author's hand this tale could seem trite and contrived. However, Holt creates elaborate characters and sets the narrative in the fabled and romantic Black Forest of the Austro-Hungarian Empire at the time of the Napoleonic Wars. The reader will soon be caught up in the intrigues that keep Helena from living the uncomplicated life of a bookseller's daughter. A grand example of the gothic romance. Highly recommended.?Theresa Connors, Arkansas Tech Univ., Russellville
