Gallant Waif

For the Duke’s Eyes Only. Kate is hiding secrets and is headstrong and bossy. Dubbed a hoyden by her father who blamed her for the fact that his beloved wife died giving birth to her, Kate survives by finding ways to be useful, not bitter at the role she is assigned.

The film went a funny colour, gallang you get the idea.

Book is in very good condition.
