I don't know how to do the links, but whilst on Fantastic Fiction I came across a book called "Nonesuch" by Gabriel King. That cover looks familiar, I thought, and a quick search revealed that (apart from a change in colour) it's identical to an early edition of Mary Stewart's "Nine Coaches Waiting" - it's the one with a Gothic looking house in the top half of the cover, and a rocking horse in the bottom half.

Good spot, and thanks to Mythica for finding the covers.

It looks like a nice photo, shame they cut off half her face on both covers!
