Francesca (Chess) Standish is a woman to be reckoned with, and a woman to be loved. She was born into the extravagant wealth of antebellum Tidewater Virginia. It is a world of feasting, hunting and dancing. Then the Civil War brings it all to a sudden end. Fifteen years later Standish is too thin and poor, and an aging spinster as well, unlikely to find true love. A young farmer who has land, driving ambition, and a secret obsession for a bewitching, devious woman who is now his brother's arrives at the crumbling Standish plantation determined to obtain the patent for a machine that can deliver his dream of earning a fortune in the tobacco business. He excites and frightens Standish - she senses he is a man capable of destroying anything and anyone who gets in his way. Even so, she wants him, so she does the only thing she can think of, and they become partners in business as well as marriage. But he has no desire for her. Binding is done in a buff parchment look. 467 pages, no marks or tears. The price has not been clipped. 8vo - over 7¾" - 9¾" tall.
