Georgette Heyer: Friday's Child

Friday's Child, by Georgette Heyer, is a paperback Berkley edition from May 1975.  Lord Sheringham, jilted by a beauty, vows to marry the next female he sees, which is his childhood friend, Hero Wantage! Their runaway marriage is the talk of the town and this romance is an amusing tale of friends, family, and love.

Allan Kass's cover shows our heroine shopping in the fashionable part of town and wearing a dashing bonnet and carrying a bandbox on her arm. We see a gentleman watching her, but he doesn't look like the youthful Sherry of our story! The background shows St Paul's Cathedral and a riding coach.
