Barbara Cartland

The Proud Princess

Having survived the 1871 siege of Paris with her mother the Queen of Dabrozka, Princess Ilona is summoned back to the war-ravaged kingdom of her father, a tyrannical monarch whose unjust rule has divided the nation into two factions: her own Radák people and the Sáros. Worse still, Russia threatens to march on Dabrozka to impose their iron-clad style of order.
Only Ilona can save her country from this fate – by making a terrible sacrifice. At the Prime Minister's request, she must marry the Prince of Sáros, their union bringing together the people. This she will do; this she must do – but what her pride will not allow her is to love the aloof, indifferent Prince. Humiliated by the Prince's evident disregard, and beaten by her own father on the eve of her wedding, it seems that love will never fill her heart – but as warclouds gather over Dabrozka, both the Prince and the Proud Princes are about to share a dramatic change of heart!

    She had a child-like confidence, despite their quiet way of life, that one day a man whom she could love and who loved her would come into her life.

    “We will never go back, Ilona. We may not be important abroad, we may have little money, but at least we have peace of mind.”
