Sylvia Thorpe: Fair Shines the Day

Fair Shines the Day was published around 1977 by Fawcett for author Sylvia Thorpe. Fawcett was publishing a lot of historical and regency romances at this time and would have a named series a few years later.

This story features Charity and is set during England's Civil War. She is in love with her neighbor Darrell Conyngton who soon leaves for war. Unfortunately his jealous cousin shows up and plots to take over his home and future wife!

Allan Kass shows our couple seated outside but having a sweeping view of the countryside. Our heroine is pretty in her blue gown while the hero looks like a gallant from the days of Charles I! I like the slit sleeves both wear and the colors of the sky.
