Rachelle Edwards:The Thieef of Hearts
The Thief of Hearts by Rachelle Edwards was published in 1973 by Fawcett, but I think this is a later copyright edition of around 1977/78.
In this last book by Edwards that I have illustrated by Kass, she tells the story of Sara Auden, a sensible girl who is held up by a dashing highwayman, who happens to visit her family as the Earl of Melford!!
Allan Kass creates a pretty cover for this book as our couple stand in a brick walled garden surrounded by foilage and a birdhouse with pretty white birds floating around it. Our couple stand in an embrace and their clothing mimic the colors of the outside. This is a tender moment that Allan captures on canvas and another great cover!
