Sylvia Thorpe: Beloved Rebel

Beloved Rebel by Sylvia Thorpe was published by Fawcett around 1978. Elinor Dane is married at 13 to Gerase Ashbourne, but doesn't meet her husband for 5 years while he's fighting with Monmouth's men against the king! Now that Monmouth is defeated, her husband is a wanted man but all she wants is to see him!

This cover by Allan Kass shows our heroine trying to help her wounded hero. I wish the couple were featured a bit more so that we could see all of the detail of her dress and his expression. This story was set around 1700, so it's interesting to see the difference in garments from the regency covers that Allan usually illustrates.
