Rachel Walker is devoted to God. She prays every day, attends Calvary Christian Church with her family, helps care for her five younger siblings, dresses modestly, and prepares herself to be a wife and mother who serves the Lord with joy. But Rachel is curious about the world her family has turned away from, and increasingly finds that neither the church nor her homeschool education has the answers she craves. Rachel has always found solace in her beliefs, but now she can’t shake the feeling that her devotion might destroy her soul.
I’m going to completely ignore the description, because it doesn’t do a thing for me. (I’m very wary when presumably non-Christian, unhomeschooled authors attempt to take on two subjects that are very important to me.)
That said, LOOK AT THE COVER. Lurrrrvely, that’s what it is. It isn’t terribly flashy (no dragons or knives or anything), but it caught my attention immediately. I think the colors had to do with my positive first glance. They’re not flashy either, but the warm neutrals drew me in. It’s a soft cover, full of creams and flesh and sunlight and shadows. The only hard thing in view are the window panes. I love how they double as prison bars, separating us from Rachel and keeping her out… or keep us in. It’s a great subtext. Also, hellooooo gorgeous font! The title itself is gorgeously done, but I’m really in love with that capital D.
What do you think of this cover? Does it entrance you the way it does me?
