Concealed near the stage-door Lokita could see the handsome stranger
Concealed near the stage-door Lokita could see the handsome stranger who had sent her orchids and the diamond butterfly which her governess said she must return. Why in the nineteenth-century had she to lead this strange, lonely life? From the first moment Prince Ivan saw the elusive Lokita dance he knew that fate had meant them for each other. But how was he ever to see Lokita alone? In Paris and London it was love that drew them together and love that drove them apart. Only after heartbreak and separation did Lokita learn the truth about herself and surrender completely to an all-demanding and all-consuming love.
