LOL: The Broad Highway
Jeffery Farnol's The Broad Highway is next in Barbara Cartland's Library of Love series. This is a romantic regency about 2 cousins and the woman that one of them must marry in order to win a fortune!
Francis Marshall creates a beautiful cover for this book. Our couple are unencumbered by titles across the illustration and we can see that this looks like they are walking through a field. We don't know if they are hiding or fleeing from someone. The heroine is wearing a muslin dress and cloak over it, but the hero is less formally attired in an open collared shirt and jacket.
