Audrey Blanshard: Granborough's Filly

Granborough's Filly is another early Fawcett book and was published in 1976. It is about Selina, who is shipwrecked off the Cornwell coast with Mr. Rufford. They were in danger from the smugglers and ruffians who preyed on shipwrecks. It's an interesting tale of how 2 dissimilar people fall in love after getting to know one another through diversity.

Allan Kass painted a sailing scene with this cover. Our couple is dressed informally and our heroine has her hair down and a shawl wrapped around her. It is interesting that the hero is wearing a necklace! The sunset is gorgeous and note the details of the ship! This is a very unique regency cover!!
