Peggy Gaddis: Enchanted Spring
We veer off into young adult books with Peggy Gaddis's, Enchanted Spring, published by Signet in August 1982. Lynn Carter isn't impressed by rich Wayde McCuller when he moves into Oakville as the heir to Inspiration Hill. However, when he is charged with murder, it is Lynn who comes to his defense.
Allan Kass shows his skill as an illustrator in this cover of our two young people. Our hero lounges on a stone wall while the heroine leans against it. It looks like an enchanted place of quiet harmony. I like the very 70's knit jumper that the heroine wears and her bouquet of lilies. I have a few other Gaddis books that Allan illustrated which I will showcase next.
