[light shelfwear only, spine very slightly turned, vintage bookseller's label (Paul Elder & Co., San Francisco) on rear pastedown; jacket shows a little paper loss at spine extremities, 2" closed tear at top front hinge Delia, a young English girl pretending to be a young French girl named Dahlia (hence the title), is working as a caddy at the golf links in Biarritz, "to earn the money to keep her poor, struggling family together." She caddies for a fine young chap named Jim, and falls in love with him, and he eventually with her -- aye, but here's the rub: she's just seventeen. So he colludes with her mother to send her to school, "to grow up [and] to come to the full bloom of young womanhood," the idea apparently being that if it turns out that her love for him is true and not just an infatuation, they'll get together again. Alas, shit happens, and by the time Delia comes back around -- just two years later! -- Unlucky Jim has already "been trapped into a loveless marriage," from which Delia "determines to save him even at the cost of her own happiness." The author was British, although this particular book seems to have been published first in America.
