Marjorie DeBoer: The Whitbourne Legacy
The Whitbourne Legacy is the only book illustrated by Allan Kass for Marjorie DeBour. This book was published by Signet in July 1985. Rosalyn Archer meets Mr. Worth Forrester, who is in search of his English ancestry. He is in love with Rosalyn, but needs to find out the truth in order to be able to marry her!
Allan Kass illustrates our couple in a music room. Our heroine stands before a pianoforte and our hero holds her hand while she plays a tune with the other. Our heroine is a very pretty young girl and the details in the background make this a truly lovely cover!
Music was an important part of life during the regency times. Most girls had instruction with piano or harp and could sing. Evenings held some kind of musical entertainment and people loved attending concerts and opera.
