Cover Attraction

Cover Art Weekend Blog Hop

This is a brand new meme hosted by Yvonne to display all those beautiful, funny, crazy and even those that make you think book covers you come across each week. I don’t know about the rest of you, but I love looking at different book covers. You may not be able to judge a book by its cover, but they are sure fun to look at.

About the book:

It is 1936 and Kate Merritt, the middle child of Victor and Nadine, works hard to keep her family together. Her father slowly slips into alcoholism and his business suffers during the Great Depression. As her mother tries to come to grips with their situation and her sisters seem to remain blissfully oblivious to it, it is Kate who must shoulder the emotional load. Who could imagine that a dirty, abandoned little girl named Lorena Birdsong would be just what the Merritts need?

In this richly textured novel, award-winning author Ann H. Gabhart reveals the power of true love, the freedom of forgiveness, and the strength to persevere through troubled times. Multidimensional characters face real and trenchant problems while maintaining their family bonds, all against the backdrop of a sultry Kentucky summer. Readers will be drawn into the story and find themselves lingering there long after they’ve finished the book.

Isn’t this cover very beautiful? Love it.

I am just in a review-writing block and am not able to write a review even if I have a couple of reviews to write. I hope I will get over it soon.

  1. Hi Veena,
    What a lovely cover, although as Violet comments, judging by the synopsis, all may not be so blissful as the cover would have the reader believe.
    Unless of course, Lorena and her happy smiling face, is just what everyone needs to put things into perspective and cheer everyone up a little, in which case the cover art portrays that beautifully …
    The almost sepia colouring works very well for the era in which the story is set too.

I love to hear your thoughts!
