Hunted down mine (we've been rearranging bookcases): a young woman
sitting sidesaddle on a white horse, in front of a large complicated
castle. She's probably a strawberry blonde, but the picture is too
small to see that clearly. I rather like it, whoever painted it has
obviously read the book or at least looked through it.

Is this the one you call the trade edition? It's the Futura/Orbit one
of 1986.
