We walk alone

We Walk Alone front cover. The bottom two-thirds of the cover contains an outdoors scene with a blond woman in the foreground, right of the image. Her back is facing the reader and she is seen from her calves up, wearing a satin nightgown, its top part lowered to her lower back, exposing most of her back and her shoulders. Through the garment, her bare skin is seen, on buttocks and legs. Her back is arched to her front left, head bowed and also turned to her left. Her arms are in front of her, almost invisible to the reader. Her hair is long and wavy and is seen hanging in front of her left shoulder. In the background of the image, the sky with many clouds can be seen, partially covering a mountain. Directly in front of the woman trees can also be seen, and a marble or stone gazebo surrounded by more trees and by haze.
