The young lady has a deep red blouse. — Text: — From the celebrated author of GREEN DOLPHIN STREET--a novel of love and romantic suspense. — THE DEAN'S WATCH is a novel as rich in humanity, as brillian... more »tly told, as suspenseful as any novel you will ever read. It is the story of an extraordinary group of men and women drawn together by a common need for love and a common search for something they cannot name.
