(price-clipped) [light wear to cloth at spine ends, light soiling to top page edges; jacket has a couple of tiny chips at bottom edge, a few minor tears at edges and corners]. A novel of "love, intrigue, horror, and murder," the story of "a brilliant and ruthless woman, [a] governess whose charm and diabolic cleverness brought destruction in their wake." Reprint of the first novel published by this prolific author under her "Joseph Shearing" pseudonym; it originally appeared in England in 1932 under the title "Forget-Me-Not," and was published in America the same year by Harper & Brothers as "Lucile Cléry: A Woman of Intrigue." Paperback editions are common enough, but any hardcover issue is hard to find, especially in decent condition. (This edition bears no date other than the 1932 copyright notice, but the four other titles blurbed on the rear jacket panel were all published in 1941.)
