Caroline Brooks: Marchman's Lady
Marchman's Lady was written by Caroline Brooks in February 1986 and published by Signet. It is the first of three books that Allan Kass illustrated for Caroline Brooks and is the story of Sarah, an American, who marries a British officer named Peter Marchman. Once she returns with him to England does she realize that her marriage may have more pitfalls than she realized.
Allan Kass paints an interesting picture for this regency. It has our heroine in riding dress walking outdoors on the estate. The hero is dressed similarly in riding dress that in some ways mimics hers. He is handsome in a red coat and carries a crop. It is a pretty cover and done during Allan's height in illustrating regencies.
