A “reckless passionate romance” by Australian author Maysie Coucher Greig (1901–1971), published in 1947 as White Circle Books 312. Launched in the UK as subsidiary of Collins in 1936, White Circle started publishing mass-market paperbacks for the Canadian market around 1942.

The decorated italic caps are from Fournier Le Jeune. According to Mac McGrew, this face is “a reproduction of Le Fournier Le Jeune originally cut in France in 1768 […] and revived in 1913 [by G. Deberny]. ATF secured the American rights in 1926.” Cover photo uncredited.
