Diana Douglas: Nurse in Disaster
Diana Douglas's Nurse in Disaster was published by Signet in March 1972. Dorrie Mason is a nurse harassed by a hospital administrator and attracted to a doctor when a hurricane hits their town and secrets come to life!
Allan Kass illustrates our nurse on the cover of this book. Interesting that she is alone and that there is no hero on this cover! We do see a ship floundering and a palm tree swaying in the wind. Our nurse is prominent and wears a cape over her uniform. This cover has a familiarity to another artist I enjoy: Walter Popp!
