April Kihlstrom: The Mysterious Governess

The Mysterious Governess was published by Signet in April 1984. April Kihlstrom tells the story of Mr. Darnell Somerton and his romance with Elizabeth, who looks a lot like a lady governess he once helped.

This cover is prettier in person than the photo! Allan Kass shows our couple standing on a balcony and it looks like they are sharing a quiet story. Our hero's jacket of purple compliments the heroine's yellow day dress. Note his large white cuffs! I like the touches of weathering on the stone railing and the tree growing up alongside the wall of the house.
