Her Prince at Last

Janetta's best-loved book reviewed by Rebecca Tremaine, Ladies' Weekly Chronicle, November 1941

Janetta's many fans will be delighted to learn that her long-awaited new novel is now on bookstore shelves.

Quite in Miss Walters' best tradition, Her Prince at Last takes the reader to a romantic world of strong men and flower-like maidens who fall in love with each other at first sight. But as always, the course of true love does not run smooth.

Her Prince at Last

Rose Elliot, an orphan cast adrift in an uncaring world, has bravely faced tragedy all her life. But a legacy from an unknown relative gives her the freedom to pursue her dream, running a weaving studio, so she leaves London and goes to live at the seaside town of Hearts Content.

It is here that for the first time in her life that she begins to make new friends: Miss Cardigan and Miss Ethel Cardigan, the elderly sisters who run the Hearts Content Hotel; Old Teasdale, the garrulous old salt who warns her about the dangers of the tides; Sir Lucius Fanshawe, the local squire; and Molly, the little crippled orphan girl, who wins Rose's heart.

Rose at last begins to feel she has found the peace and security she's been seeking all her life. But into this idyllic world comes Edward Caulfield, the handsome stranger whose brooding manner seems to shield a bitter secret. In spite of her determination never to marry, Rose finds herself strangely drawn to this strong, taciturn, enigmatic man. And she begins to think he might be learning to care for her as well. But who is the beautiful woman that Edward has been meeting by moonlight? And why does he seem to be jealous of Rose's friendship with Sir Lucius, a confirmed bachelor?

Miss Walters' legion of readers will not be disappointed with the tender love scenes and dramatic climax, where a near-tragedy at last brings the book to a satisfying conclusion.

Love Triumphant

Advance notice

Janetta Walters, the popular author, has completed a new novel which is to be published shortly. It is entitled Love Triumphant and Miss Walters' large circle of admirers need not be told to make a note of it for their library lists. The story is well up to her usual standard; it is sensitive and delicate and full of romance.

Miss Walters has had a slight nervous breakdown, due to overwork, and has gone to Cornwall to recuperate. Her next book, which is already well on its way, is entitled Love's Garden and we are informed on good authority that it will have a Cornish setting.
