Diana Campbell: A Breath of Scandal
A Breath of Scandal is the first book by Diana Campbell that I have illustrated by Allan Kass. Signet published this book in October 1987. The story is about Susanna Randall, who marries the Earl of Langham, who has seemingly disappeared after visiting the United States. She is ready to annul her marriage when he unexpectantly returns at the time she is ready to make another alliance!
Allan Kass creates a very interesting cover for this book. Our hero is different in that he has prematurely graying hair! Our heroine is elegant in a pink bonnet and pelisse. she carries a large striped hatbox, which meant that she was shopping or traveling. In the background stands the coach, coachman, and horse. This cover makes you wonder if the hero went gray from visiting the US!
