Pat wrote in looking for a book she read a long time ago, and she's been looking for it since then:
I am looking for a title/book. I found your website through a “romance
novel leper highway man” search.
I thought it was “Rosamond” by Rosemary Somebody or other, but now I can't find the title or it anywhere. I read it
back in the 80's.
Main character Rosemond/Rosamund has cruel stepmother who
hides her beauty by dressing her dreadful. Father dies, stepmother's lover
tries to seduce Rosamund, she escapes, falls into wonderful highway man's
arms who is her true love, rides the highway with him, he “dies” just as
they are to board ship to escape England, she ends up pregnant and stranded
with a Spanish man, she marries Spanish man and has to go live with his mean
family, he gets leperosy, stages his death, but watches over her from afar.
Meanwhile her child grows up to be a beautiful young girl, and mean in laws
make her wed the evil “Lord” in the area, mom stands in at wedding for
daughter, and just as weird mean guy is about to kill Rosamund, Spanish
husband and the English Highway man (who has been living and earning his
fortune as a Dutch trader) swoop in and saves her.
Have you ever read/or heard of this? It is driving me crazy, please help.
So, there's really not enough romances with leprosy, as I've said before. Anyone remember this book?
