Sylvia Thorpe: Beggar on Horseback

Next in line is prolific author Sylvia Thorpe. Allan Kass illustrated quite a few of her historical romances for Fawcett. Beggar on Horseback was published around 1977 and is the story of Dorothea Stratton whose life changes for the worse after her brother gambled away their fortune. Little does she know that the injured stranger she's helping is the man who won the fortune!

Allan Kass shows our couple in front of a window where the hero is reading and the heroine comes to check on his arm. I like the Georgian style clothing and the simple but comfortable details of this room. I think the hero is wishing to spend the day outside, but can't because of his wound.
