BEFORE THE STORM by Mrs. Belloc Lowndes



Pub Date: May 7th, 1941
Publisher: Longmans, Green

Playgirl Dina loses her fortune -- and her heart -- and holds a key position in a jewel encrusted matron's home, when the jewels are stolen due to her giveaway. A Mrs. Dovedale, her nemesis, tries to marry Dina off (for a consideration) to a superwealthy man, makes a second attempt at theft, plots to kill Dina's young Wing Commander, but fortunately fails. Gilded gentry in a just-before-this-war setting..... if you must.
