Joan Smith: Dame Durden's Daughter

Published in 1978, Dame Durden's Daughter (who comes up with these titles!!) is the story of Edith Durden who liked Helver, the heir of the Duke of Saymore. Everyone else thought he was a hellion and did their best to separate the pair!

Allan Kass shows our couple in front of an ornate bridge in the middle of a pretty lake. The hero and heroine seem in harmony as they walk close to one another. I like the hero's purple jacket which is a foil for the heroine's yellow gown. It's a shame that we don't see such artwork on romances anymore.
