Mary Balogh: The Constant Heart

A Constant Heart was written by Mary Balogh in July 1987. Mary Balogh writes a story of heartbreak and reunited love when Rebecca's beau, Christopher, who had married another for wealth, returns to her after the death of his wife. However, she is also being courted by Reverend Everett. Who will she chooose?

Allan Kass paints a simple outdoors scene for this cover. I love the hero's periwinkle blue jacket! He seems to blend into the foilage as he leans against the tree while our heroine is bright in a simple yellow dress. I wonder if they met unawares, since her hair is down. It seems as if he's waiting for an answer; maybe from a marriage proposal!

Mary Balogh's early regencies are very hard to find and out of print. She has gone on to become one of the most popular writers of romance in the world. I think it's great that she got her start with Signet!
