Sheila Walsh: A Highly Respectable Marriage

Published by Signet in October 1982, Sheila Walsh's A Highly Respectable Marriage was a story of Pandora Carlyon, who finds London different after the battlefields where her father died especially when she meets the Duke of Heron to interview as governess to his wards!

Allan Kass creates a very pretty cover here showing our couple seated outside. The heroine is elegant in her light pink gown and matching parasol while the hero young and handsome sits behind. I like how Kass portrays her holding the parasol and the turn of her wrists. One reason I was drawn to his illustrations is because of the correct physical dimensions he gives to his characters. No awkward neck turns or heads that don't fit bodies here!
