Here for your delectation is the SPECTACULAR & RARE---------------------DIANA by R.F. Delderfield.
A poor but respectable English country boy falls in love with Diana, the young mistress of the manor. Wildly rebellious against her snobbish mother, Diana encourages John, or "Jan" as she romantically names him, to be her swain. Together they ride, dream, and plan a future when the manor will be theirs together. Diana grows into a polished young lady, fond of fast cars and fast society, but still retains a strong tie with John, who hopelessly loves her. His ambition to win her leads him to seek an education and a literary career, and, even when frightened by her father's bankruptcy, she marries another, he believes that his love for her has had its rewards. Years later during the war, they meet in France, Diana playing a dangerous role in the resistance. She bequeaths to Jan a group of refugee children, one of which is his. Jan recognizes this latest role as another gambit against monotony, but in the sound of the children's voices as they romp happily through the English woods he finds her redemption and the justification of their capricious love. A romantic story which should appeal to women who seek in fiction the undevious, tasteful and gently nostalgic. Only an Englishman can acquit himself satisfactorily in this genre, and this R.F. Delderfield does.
