Monica Heath: Clancumara's Keep
Clancumara's Keep by Monica Heath is next in our list of Allan Kass illustrations. This book was published by Signet in November 1978. Kerry Carillo is searching for the truth about her mother and hoping to find the father she's never met. Her clues lead her to Clancumara and the mystery that she finds there!
Allan Kass's gothic romances are infinitely better than most! We see a beautifully illustrated heroine along with all of the gothic touches: lonely castle, lone light, and eerie time frame! I am amazed at how modern his women look, even 30 years after the illustration! We see a beautiful brunette, in black and green velvet, outside of the keep, which is dark and mysterious. Sorry that my book isn't in the best of condition.
