Cover Focus: On Distant Shores

On Distant Shores by Sarah Sundin

Book blurb from : “Lt. Georgiana Taylor has everything she could want. A comfortable boyfriend back home, a loving family, and a challenging job as a flight nurse. But in July 1943, Georgie’s cozy life gets decidedly more complicated when she meets pharmacist Sgt. John Hutchinson. Hutch resents the lack of respect he gets as a noncommissioned serviceman and hates how the war keeps him from his fiancée. While Georgie and Hutch share a love of the starry night skies over Sicily, their lives back home are falling apart. Can they weather the hurt and betrayal? Or will the pressures of war destroy the fragile connection they’ve made?

With her signature attention to detail and her talent for bringing characters together, Sarah Sundin pens another exciting tale in her series featuring WWII flight nurses. Fans new and old will find in On Distant Shores the perfect combination of emotion, action, and romance.”

Why I like this cover: It’s lovely, just like all of Sarah Sundin’s covers are. I can’t wait until this book comes out in August 2013! I guess one of the main things I love so much about it is the shade of blue used behind the title. It’s a smooth but elegant blue, and I really like it! I also like that they did the word “Distant” in a curly script. The next most obvious thing is the girl, Georgie or Georgiana. Her hair is exceptionally lovely, with real ringlets! And that smile is sweet too…she looks like someone I’d love to get to know. She looks strong but gentle and understanding. And I think people like that are the best. If you look closely further down, you’ll also see an arch, or maybe a bridge, with a stone wall on each side. Obviously, this story must be set in a beautiful part of Europe. Looks awesome!
