Caroline Farr: Heiress to Corsair Keep
March 1978 was the publication date of Heiress to Corsair Keep by Caroline Farr. Elizabeth Lagrange returns to the castle where she had almost died in a fire as a child. Now that she has inherited, she plans to live in this tropical paradise until an ancient evil threatens her.
Allan Kass creates an interesting image for this cover. We see the spooky castle set on an island with the palm trees in the distance. Our heroine is fleeing wearing a pink evening gown. Note her bracelets---a Kass touch! Somehow I don't think you'd see a Gothic castle on the shores of a Caribbean island, but isn't imagination a great thing?
