"Rosemary Oliver's parents died in an automobile accident when she was only six years old. Happiness and freedom and friendship and love ceased for her then. She was taken to live with her grandmother in a little up-state New York town, and she came to understand why her mother had run away at sixteen. For Grandmother-Mrs. Bogardus-was rich, power-mad, completely selfish. When Rosemary was 17, she too ran away. But where her mother ran away to marry a man she loved, Rosemary, ran away merely to escape. And Rosemary, though she didn't know it, was an heiress. Her grandfather had left a will which provided that his entire fortune should become hers on the day of her marriage. Three men knew about the provisions of that will. Three men wanted to marry her. Each of those three men acted after his own fashion to gain his selfish ends. Poor Rosemary was the pawn in the game. But she married the man her heart wanted."; 12mo - over 6¾" - 7¾" tall
