Emilie Loring: Hlltops Clear

Hilltops Clear by Emilie Loring was published by Bantam in February 1971. Prudence Schuyler was starting up a farm and hoping to forget the tragedy in her life when she realizes that she has to partner with a handsome neighbor to keep her farm's timber from being seized by another more ruthless man.

Allan Kass illustrates our couple in the snowy woods. They are dressed for the cold as they share a tender moment in the snow lined trees. What's curious to me is that, as far as I know, this is the only Loring cover that Kass illustrated and one I found through his daughter. Click on the cover to enlarge.
