Nadine Miller: The Gypsy Duchess
Moira, the widowed Duchess of Sheffield, must work with the Earl of Langley since he is now guardian of her young son but the Earl hates her because his brother went off to war when she married another and was killed.
Allan Kass depicts our couple outside on a cold day. Both are dressed heavily but hatless. We wonder if they are traveling together or has the heroine arrived for a visit? I love her purple coat which we've seen in a few other Kass illustrations!!
