Laura Matthews: A Very Proper Widow

A Very Proper Widow was published by Signet in December 1982 for Laura Matthews. Vanessa Damery is a widow raising her two small children and determined never to marry again until she meets the Earl of Alvescot who is a relative of her late husband and has come to help her with the estate.

We have a picture of a young couple outside of a pretty cottage. Allan Kass creates a scene where they share a comforting moment with each other. Note the gold jewelry on the heroine because this is a Kass touch and seen a lot on some of his earlier covers. It's also interesting that we see a heroine with her hair down since during the regency time, it was proper for grown women to wear their hair up off their neck.
