Holt, Victoria. [pseudonym for Eleanor Hibbert (1906-1993) who also wrote as Jean Plaidy, Philippa Carr, etc.)
THE SPRING OF THE TIGER.
Garden City, NY: Doubleday, (1979.) Hardcover
Book club edition. Novel of romantic suspense, set on in Victorian London and remote Ceylon, by this prolific and deservedly popular author. Antonia Byatt felt that Hibberts appeal lay in the fact that 'she possessed sufficient imagination to create a world for the reader, and not enough to ruin it with the complications and ambiguities which plague real life: the ideal formula for escapist reading.' Very good in very good dust jacket (corner of front endpaper clipped.) .
