The Duke was determined that Jason should marry Della and used huge pressure on her and her uncle to gain his wish. She was repulsed by Jason and decided to run away with the friendly band of gypsies who were camped nearby so that she could think of a way out her dilemma. She disguised herself as a gypsy woman by dyeing her lovely blonde hair black and started to learn the gypsy art of fortune-telling. The gypsy caravans stopped on a welcoming estate and an unexpected visit from the owner catapulted Della reluctantly into the role of a fortuneteller herself. How she fared with her crystal ball and at the same time found the love of her life is told in this unusual and heart-warming romance by BARBARA CARTLAND.
Barbara Cartland was the world's most prolific novelist who wrote an amazing 723 books in her lifetime, of which no less than 644 were romantic novels with worldwide sales of over 1 billion copies and her books were translated into 36 different languages. As well as romantic novels, she wrote historical biographies, 6 autobiographies, theatrical plays and books of advice on life, love, vitamins and cookery. She wrote her first book at the age of 21 and it was called Jigsaw.
It became an immediate bestseller and sold 100,000 copies in hardback in England and all over Europe in translation. Between the ages of 77 and 97 she increased her output and wrote an incredible 400 romances as the demand for her romances was so strong all over the world. She wrote her last book at the age of 97 and it was entitled perhaps prophetically The Way to Heaven.
Her books have always been immensely popular in the United States where in 1976 her current books were at numbers 1 & 2 in the B. Dalton bestsellers list, a feat never achieved before or since by any author. Barbara Cartland became a legend in her own lifetime and will be best remembered for her wonderful romantic novels so loved by her millions of readers throughout the world, who have always collected her books to read again and again, especially when they feel miserable or depressed.
Her books will always be treasured for their moral message, her pure and innocent heroines, her handsome and dashing heroes, her blissful happy endings and above all for her belief that the power of love is more important than anything else in everyone's life."

I love Barbara Cartland’s book but the narrative on this book is appalling. Twice you can hear the narrator ask if he should do it again. Twice a chapter did not end like it should have. While listening it will jump to a previous chapter. I thought it might just be downloading but I listened to another book that I had downloaded at the same time and there was nothing wrong with that one. I did not get to hear the end of the book because chapter one started again. Grrrrr
