MIra Stables: The Byram Succession

Back to the Regency with Mira Stables book, The Byram Succession. Published in 1976 by Fawcett, it is the story of Alethea, who inherited all of Cousin Albert's fortune and soon engaged the attention of the Duke of Byram, to her cousin's fury.

Allan Kass illustrates our couple on a roadside where they have stepped out of the coach and are resting in the fresh air. I like the stone wall and you can almost see the dirt and mud of the street while feeling the mist of an early morning. The heroine's red cape is cheery and functional. They seem to have reached an understanding as they stand handclasp.
