Marion Chesney: The Education of Miss Patterson
The Education of Miss Patterson was published by Signet in December 1985 for Marion Chesney. It is a story about Patricia, whose guardian sends her away to become educated when he realizes that she's been pampered all of her young life. The sparks fly once she returns with a mission: to make her guardian fall in love with her as revenge for sending her away!!
Allan Kass illustrates another great cover with our couple in evening dress standing in an elegant room. Our heroine is pretty in a blue gown embellished with pink roses which sets off her red hair while our hero is handsome in evening dress. I like how she is looking away from him. Notice the intricate wood carving above the door. I love that Allan always creates a perfect background for his couples! I hope that Marion Chesney was happy with this cover!
