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!
Update: the photo added is listed on barbaracartland.com as #149 Pink Collection They Ran Away. What's interesting is the photo looks like another sketch of The Bars of Iron!
