Elizabeth Seifert: Doctor's Kingdom

Now we shift to a doctor romance by Elizabeth Seifert. Published by Signet in December 1974, it is the story of Malcolm Anderson who was a brilliant heart surgeon and the whirlwind caused when Abby Bennett entered his life!

Allan Kass didn't illustrate many doctor and nurse romances as they were not as popular when he began illustrating in the late 1960's but this one is an interesting study with our doctor, standing pensive in the foreground, his love interest, and a nurse at her desk. I like how he can use very little detail to convey a story in this picture. I have another book that Allan illustrated by Seifert, but would love to know if there are any more!
