Norma Lee Clark: Pippa
Pippa was published by Signet in November 1987 and is another delightful story by Norma Lee Clark. It is about Pippa, who gives her guardian, Sir Anthony Seymour-Croft, fits while he tries not to fall in love with her, himself!
Allan Kass outdoes himself with this cover! Our couple stand outside near a chaise where the hero is ready to hand the heroine up into it. She is pretty in a purple gown with a bright pink parasol. Our hero is dark and handsome in a red coat! It's a beautiful summer day and the park looks cool and inviting. The details of the chaise, coachmen, and horse are all great Kass details. I hope that you enjoy this cover!
Young ladies required guardians for different reasons. Sometimes it was to safeguard their fortunes or to provide a marriage. It was common for a young lady to live in London with another older lady who would take them out into society and find a match.
