THE PROMISE OF HAPPINESS / CAROLINE’S WATERLOO
I'm not attracted to thin mice; so stated the urbane Baron Tiele Raukema van den Eck – and as Rebecca Saunders was both thin and mouselike she knew exactly where she stood with him! But he had been very kind, rescuing her when she was virtually destitute. He had even found her a job – nursing his mother – that was enjoyable and well paid and that took her to Norway and Holland. The result was inevitable – Rebecca had fallen in love with him, and even the presence of his girlfriend Nina couldn't stop her dreaming.
