Caroline Farr: Brecon Castle
Brecon Castle is the first of many Caroline Farr gothic romances that Allan Kass illustrated. This title was published by Signet in October 1976.
Gillian Owen was hired to serve as nurse to David Brecon's young daughter, but quickly realized that the villagers were right and Brecon Castle harbored some kind of evil which threatened her and her young charge.
Allan Kass illustrates one of my favorite gothic covers here! I love the heroine: her dark flowing hair, her emerald green gown and wrap and her beautiful face! She blends into the shadowy scene of the castle and landscape as she walks along the stone wall near the water. I think it's one of Allan's best gothic covers and I hope you agree!!
