Margaret Evans Porter: Sweet Lavender

Sweet Lavender was published in August 1993 by Signet. Margaret Evans Porter tells a story about Beryl Kinnard, the youngest of a large family who is tempted by the Marquis of Elston even though she has vowed to wed the absent Peter Yeates!

Allan Kass gives us a musical cover for this book. Our heroine is seated at a harpsichord and our hero holds a violin. We assume that they have just played a duet. Music would have been an important accomplishment and always performed live in those days before the record and phonograph. Note the detail on the instrument itself and the features of the room.
