[shelfwear to bottom edges and top corners of paper-covered boards (slight exposure of boards at a few points), otherwise a solid clean copy that appears to have never been read; jacket shows some edgewear, with a few small closed tears, shallow chip at bottom of rear panel, slight fading to spine]. "Pauline is a young girl, jilted in love, who goes to the Italian Riviera to find solace and forgetfulness along that fascinating littoral of blue-watered beaches. But the friends that she soon makes at the pension where she stays won't allow her to maintain her 'once bitten, twice shy' attitude. Here in a court-yard filled with heavily-fruited orange trees a new life is revealed to her." The author was the wife of the English writer and poet A.E. Coppard; this appears to have been her only published novel, and is exceedingly scarce.
