Diana Brown: St. Martin's Summer
St. Martin's Summer is the last Diana Brown book that I have that's illustrated by Allan Kass. It was published in July 1982. It is the story of Josephina who lives outside of London and is concerned with saving her family estate and finding spouses for her two sisters. She meets Lord Conniston Venables and realizes that her heart is in danger.
Allan Kass paints a picture of our couple in a rural setting surrounded by flowers and sheep. It's a classic Kass illustration with our couple dressed in riding attire and sharing an intimate moment together. This is a very beautiful cover of the English countryside.
