This is the 4th mills and boons book i have shopped,my records inform me.The name is The Hungry Tide, written by Lucy Gillen.This book was first published in 1975 and i have a copy of 1976 edition of the book.
Genre - Fiction,romance
Age Factor - A simple plain love story,i don't see any reason,why teenagers cant read it.
Still, its for everyone who has crossed the 15 year mark.
The book - I wrote it before,i will repeat myself.Its a simple plain love story,and there are 4 main characters involved.A little boy named Nicky,her governess,Rachel, Neil, her employer and Neil's cousin Lars. So as you can easily guess,the girl is caught between two guys. However,this story has an interesting element,i.e. Nicky's death mother,and an unknown father.The story keeps you guessing till the end,which makes it a good read.
If you can find this book,in bookstores,which i think would be a difficult task, go for it.But make sure that its a girly book, so don't gift it to a guy,worse of all to an acquaintance. Mills&boons are generally a nice buy for your gal friends who like mushy romance.
A thought that matters
A good book should leave you... slightly exhausted at the end. You live several lives while reading it. William Styron, interview, Writers at Work, 1958
