Cover Focus: A Sound Among the Trees

A Sound Among the Trees by Susan Meissner

Book blurb from goodreads.com : As a young bride, Susannah Page was rumored to be a Civil War spy for the North, a traitor to her Virginian roots. Her great-granddaughter, Adelaide, the current matriarch of Holly Oak, doesn't believe that Susannah's ghost haunts the antebelllum mansion looking for a pardon but rather the house itself bears a grudge towards its tragic past.
When Marielle Bishop marries into the family and is transplanted from the arid west to her husband's home, it isn't long before she is led to believe that the house she just settled into brings misfortune to the women who live there.
With Adelaide's richly peppered superstitions and deep family roots at stake, Marielle must sort out the truth about Susannah Page and Holly Oak -- and make peace with the sacrifices she has made for love.

**A Sound Among the Trees comes out October 4, 2011**

What I like about the cover: I think I like it because the colors are stunning. The pink/orange color is something that really makes it stand out. The dress that is on the front is beautiful...and see the roses that I think she's holding? And the house shown in the skirt is a house I'd love to live in. Wouldn't you? I love the upstairs porch. Then the brick walk-way and green grass add the perfect touch, so that the orangeish color isn't overpowering.

**Whether or not this book is good...I don't know. But though I liked the cover, I can't yet say whether the story is okay or not.**
