LOL: The Bars of Iron

October 1977 saw the publication of The Bars of Iron by Ethel M. Dell, condensed for Barbara Cartland! It is the story of a young widow, Avery, who unknowingly marries her first husband's murderer, Piers!

Francis Marshall shows our couple at a hunt. Our hero is dressed for hunting in his red jacket, while the heroine wears a white coat and blue scarf, that sets off her pretty reddish hair. The other hunters ride in the background and we see a wooden fence behind our couple. Another great cover by FM!


  1. this girl looks like the Late Diana Princess of Wales.

  2. I have to admit, I just thought the exact same thing. How funny I weren't the only one to think so!
