Caroline Farr: House of Valhalla
House of Valhalla was published in July 1978 by Signet for Caroline Farr. Valhalla is the home of Johann Richter, an old man writing his autobiography. Lorna Mitchell arrives to help translate it but there are people who are trying to stop the publication of his work at any cost!
Allan Kass shows our heroine fleeing a mansion in a snowy setting off the coast of Maine. She is fashionably dressed in a brown cape and sensible boots with an sweater and skirt outfit underneath. I like the touches of jewelry and belt Allan gives her. We get a feel of impending doom and snow with the total bluish white of the background. Enjoy!!
