Sylvia Thorpe: The Highwayman

The Highwayman was published by Fawcett around 1976. Thorpe gives us another story set in the turbulent times of England's Civil War where a desperate highwayman named Colonel Fury ruled the flatlands of Hounslow Heath and a girl named Rowena is determined to find her brother with the help of this desperado!

Allan Kass illustrates our couple sitting in a bar with our heroine acting as a barmaid possibly to fool the man entering the door. Her outfit is typically countrified but note her earrings and bracelets! The hero is resplendent in gold and lace and has a look of Hugh Grant from his Barbara Cartland movie day!
