White Lilac is #13 in the Camfield series and was published in September 1984. While fogged in, the Duke of Marazion is resting at an unknown inn when he is interrupted by Ilitta, a lovely artist, who seeks shelter from another man. He takes her to London, where she was bound on the stagecoach, because she is a talented caricaturist and he hopes to help her get a job.
This is an interesting cover, because, while our heroine is a artist, she isn't creating full length portraits as the cover implicates. A cartoonist or caricaturist would probably use pen and ink for their drawings. I do like her blue gown which should have an apron over to not get stained! Oh well!!
