Music Is The Soul Of Love

Carina was alone in the world and unsure of what the future held for her. Then a troupe of musicians, called 'Bertie's Beauties', had an accident outside her gates and she found herself swept up in their fate as she took over from their injured pianist. Now one of the troupe, she went to perform at the Duke of Westbury's castle, never suspecting that the Duke would turn out to be the young man she had met for a few dramatic moments many years before. To hide her identity she allowed him to see her only when she was masked. He soon became so intrigued that he made advances to her. Horrified that he should consider her a woman of loose morals, Carina fled the castle and became a full time member of 'Bertie's Beauties'. If she could not find love, at least she could fulfil her gifts as a musician. Knowing she could never marry the man she loved, she agreed to marry Bertie, who had fallen in love with her, although he know her heart was given to the Duke. But the Duke had never got over her desertion and he was determined to find her. What happened when they met again is told in this intriguing and romantic novel by Barbara Cartland.

    “And you meant them for me. You were warning me what life would be like without you, but I needed no warning. There will be no ‘smiling face and broken heart’ for us. No ‘long and weary years’ without each other. I will not let you go. You are mine until the end of your days. Promise me.”

    “I promise,” she whispered.

    “Swear it. Place your hand over your heart and vow to give that heart to no other man as long as you shall live.”

    Solemnly she laid her hand over her heart.

    “I swear it,” she said. “No man but you, all my life.”

    But now the time has come to part, Smiling face and broken heart.
    Long and weary years stretch onward, The shadowed road leads far away.
    Will life give us one more meeting?
    Who can say? Who can say?”
    Elias BhiKaizer Wilsonhas quoted7 years ago
    How sweet the time we spent together, How tenderly we loved each other.
