Having written over ninety historical romances, she then began a new series of Gothic romances, the first of which, Mistress of Mellyn, appeared in 1961.

Despite the delightful expressiveness of reader Eve Karpf's British voice, this Gothic mystery set on the southern coast of Victorian England is loaded with background and internal thoughts. Things finally pick up, and Karpf imbues her crisp accent with clear characterization, helping the reader sort out the confusingly large cast. M.C. (c)AudioFile, Portland, Maine
