Some of you may have seen this cover floating around the internet already...but I'm excited to share it with you here also! I love what the creative team at Howard Books did with this cover. It goes well with Promise to Return but still is unique and beautiful. It was really fun to work with the creative team on this...picking out the models was the best part. When we were working on the cover for book 1 one of those models stood out to me as perfect for Christine. And now that I see it I am so very excited still. Christine is breathtaking and I love what they did with her clothing and hair.
Eli...I think they did a fantastic job with him. Originally we'd picked a different model but he was unavailable but now that I see this "Eli" I am so glad. His expression is perfect. Yes...his hair is not an "Amishy" hair style...but when you read the book, you'll understand this. He works in a CPS unit and cuts his hair in a crew cut and it grows out as he returns home to Sunrise, DE.
