Mary Ann Gibbs: The Glass Palace
The Glass Palace by Mary Ann Gibbs is the first of 4 books that Allan Kass illustrated for her. This is a Fawcett publication and was published in 1973 (though I think this is closer to 1976/7).
Tabitha Sackroyd, an adopted daughter, agrees to marry one man but falls in love with the village physician. However, the secret of her past will come to shadow her love.
Allan Kass illustrates our couple sitting in front of a mansion with a wrought iron fence. Our heroine wears a Victorian day dress, which is fuller and more covering than the Regency dresses of 30 years before. Our hero wears a green coat and has a cane resting against the bench. Note the detail on the iron fence!!
