Edith Layton: The Indian Maiden
Allan Kass's beautiful depiction of our heroine is definitely the focal point of this cover. Her unique gown of red, white, and blue may be a mocking jest at the English where she is making her presentation.
There are a few regencies where the heroine was American, but it would have been uncommon for one to travel the ocean during the regency, which was a time of hostility between the two countries.
