Cover Attraction ~ March 11th

March 11, 2009

I’m a very visual person and love beautiful, or interesting, cover art. It doesn’t necessarily mean I’ll read the book but at least I might stop and take a peek instead of walking right on by. This week’s Cover Attraction is:

theorderofthingsTitle: The Order of Things
Author: Lynn Hinton
Release date: March ’09

From Fantastic Fiction:
Andreas Jay Hackett is a university librarian known for her love of keeping things organized. But one summer, she finds herself falling away from a sense of well being, depressed, “out of order.” Her work doesn’t give her pleasure, her friends worry about her, and her own voice begins to frighten her. Therapy, pills and doctors visits don’t help, so Andreas checks herself into a psychiatric facility. There, she finds herself in a room next door to a prison inmate who has also been hospitalized. As she talks with her new neighbor, Andreas begins to come out of her despair–ultimately finding the healing she needs through a friendship that develops in the darkest of circumstances, and despite boundaries of race, gender, education, and age.

      I love the cover but I’m waffling on reading the book. I think it would be good but then a part of me says to stay away.

    I love this cover! Must be the vibrant color of the butterfly.

      The colors in the butterfly as some of my favorite. I didn’t even hesitate picking as my cover this week.

      It is isn’t it? Wasn’t a hard choice this week. Only one other cover came close to being my selection but I couldn’t resist this one.

    That’s a lovely cover. A cover makes such a difference when the title and author aren’t familiar.Here’s mine:
