Translated from La Madone des Sleepings by Neal Wainwright. "Lady Diana Wynham was resting. Her legs, enmeshed in a silken web, caressed a small beige cushion. The other half of her lovely self was hidden behind a copy of the 'Times' unfolded in her snowy arms. Her tiny feet quivered in their cerise and silver mules, seriously endangering the future of a real Wedgewood cup on the table at her side." Very Good - Good Quarter Cloth (Item ID: 61668)
