Mary Ann Gibbs: A Young Lady of Fashion
A Young Lady of Fashion is the last of our illustrated Allan Kass books written by Mary Ann Gibbs. This book was published by Fawcett in 1978.
Lucinda is a young lady with her mind made up: she will marry the heir of the Chevening family or no one at all! Unfortunately, it is the younger son, Edward, who loves Lucinda.
Allan Kass shows our couple outside in an elegant garden with our heroine picking flowers. She looks as if she's been interrupted by our hero, who, with book in hand, keeps his distance as he rests upon the brick wall. It's an interesting cover since the hero is quite removed from the heroine and we assume that he has also been outside enjoying the day with his book.
