July 1978 saw the publication of Tetherstones by Ethel M. Dell and condensed by Barbara Cartland. This is a story about an insane old man, his loving son, a daughter despoiled by a seducer relative and the girl who comes to help. Cartland considers Dell one of the best romance authors of the 1920's.
Francis Marshall illustrates our couple outside. Our heroine is runninig and seems frightened. She is pretty with her brown hair and clear features. I like that her outfit would be worn today! Our hero holds a rifle and is on alert for danger, which may be the old man crouching in the background.
