Copyright 1976. When Daphne left her family's country estate at Verchamp Park for the season in London, it was certainly with no anticipation of romance. In a natural and quiet way, she fell in love with Christian Livingston--a man who was certainly not good ton. He wasn't ton at all. -- The nice thing about Daphne is that she doesn't go and make stupid decisions just because everyone says she should. I like the fact that she follows her heart and her brain.
