Diana Douglas: Nurse in Spain
May 1975 saw the publication of Nurse in Spain by Diana Douglas. Fran Kelly transfers to Spain hoping for an easy tour of duty. She meets two different men and has to make a decision whether to love the handsome American doctor or the passionate Spanish matador!
Allan Kass illustrates this book with a montage of Spain. We see the matador and bull along with some indistinct skyline. Our couple is almost incongruent; the nurse, white and plain, and the matador, all colorful and decorated! What's your take on this cover?
