The book cover I picked this week to feature in this weekly event is "The Winter Sea" by Susann Kearsley.
In 2008 Carrie McClelland can't hit the right note for her next novel but an unplanned detour, and a stop at the castle that inspired Count Dracula, sets her on a different path; a path that took her back in back exactly 300 years, to that same castle, and to a rebellion doomed to failure. Alternating between the contemporary setting and the past, The Winter Sea takes us at every turn into little known worlds; historical footnotes writ large, a history of Scotland and the Jacobite rebellion of 1708 and the possibility of genetic memory. Historical fiction at it's best and Susanna Kearsley at hers, The Winter Sea evokes the writing of Thomas Raddall, Daphne Du Maurier, and Mary Stewart. You can read more about this book here.
I really like this cover. It looks old and mystical and I love the color of her hair. Since I first saw this cover I've been waiting impatiently to read it. What do you think? Does this book say read me to you?
