Description: some edge wear, bit of slant to the spine. "In 1556, English widow Sara takes her young widowed niece Bess Marwick to Antwerp to find a new factor, or representative, on the Continent for Sara's inherited shipping business. Handsome, intelligent Bartholomew Catlin agrees, also allowing Bess to train in his countinghouse. Romance blooms slowly between Bess and Catlin, impeded by the young man's conviction that he's bring haunted by the ghost of his father's vengeful business partner, by his fascination with quack physician and astrologer Nicolas van Wouwere, by his continued dalliances with whores and by his own belabored indecisiveness. When van Wouwere cheats Catlin and flees to Rome, Bess and Sara follow to retrieve the money and exact revenge for an evil horoscope. Their triumphant return proves Catlin's ghostly obsessions are unfounded." - Publisher's Weekly
