In all probability, she would never again see this dashing Siegfried. Yet he had captured her heart and her imagination. Could it be that they might meet again and bring their mutual passion to its proper fulfillment? Or was another meeting, even marriage, merely the hopeless dream of a romantic young woman?

It is a night for festive celebration, a night for singing and dancing, and a night for love.

And Victoria Holt weaves this richly complex story into a colorful background to produce another masterful novel of adventure, suspense and romance - a new spell-binder from one of the world's most popular authors.
