By Denise Robins

  • E-Book
  • £P.O.R.

A compelling tale from the 100-million-copy bestselling Queen of Romance,
originally published in 1929 and now available for the first time in
eBook.

Philippa's error is to give of herself too generously. The man she gives
herself to as wife proves disastrously unequal to the passion she
lavishes on him.

He feels stifled by it, and after only three years of marriage his
thoughts tun to the idea of escape - and his eyes elsewhere. 'Elsewhere'
means an attractively self-possessed young woman who is Philippa's 'best
friend'.

Philippa's odyssey is long and painful before she can finally come to
terms with her abundant nature...
