Here we are again with another book cover from Amber Stokes!
Lovely, isn’t it? I know! All kudos to Lena Goldfinch (cover illustrator) and Amber Stokes (Author). In case you want a cover for your book as charming as this one, just scroll down a bit and you can see Lena’s details.
My Thoughts On The Cover
Aside from the fact that it is gorgeous …. 😉
There is something soft and sensual about it. The blue draws you into the emotional world of the character, as though a beautiful bright day struggles against a rainy one. It’s the same with the gold of the earth. The gold wants to promise a better world, against a brown that speaks of a foreboding one.
You can see the intense emotion on her face. It is as though she struggles with a tough decision, but chooses love and is determined to hold onto it. She holds the flowers in her hand—forget-me-nots—in a precious manner, as though drawing faith from what it represents—Forget-Me-Not.
She wraps her arms around her body as though shutting out the cold and harshness of the outside world, and at the same time, they embrace her precious-found love, keeping them safe within.
I’ll stop here.
See, I haven’t read the book (as the ARCs have not been released). Just its sequel, Bleeding Heart (awesomely written book. So brave of Amber!). But I’m one who loves to read and draw out the thousand words written in a picture. I love to unlock the mysteries within. Combined with the blurb of the book, well, I’m keeping my fingers crossed and hoping my prediction is right.
About the Book
Prequel to Bleeding Heart
Old hurts, new betrayals, and a love that survives them all…
A startling revelation sends Elizabeth Lawson escaping into a stormy night – and tosses her into the arms of a young mountain man with secrets of his own. When he offers to take her to the Nevada mining town where her long-lost brother lives, she accepts. Suspicions and uncertainties are pushed aside as she struggles to forge a future for herself by meeting her past.
David has been hiding from his painful memories for years. The solitude and wildness of the Rocky Mountains are challenge and comfort enough for him – until Elizabeth’s arrival. Fueled by anger and a sense of obligation, he strives to take control of his new situation…only to find control slipping from his grasp with each new emotion Elizabeth evokes in him.
When their journey leads them on unexpected paths, can two lonely hearts find the strength to remember the good amid the heartbreak?
