Coming in early 2018 from Bethany House

BethanyHouseearly2018

Bethany House never disappoints when it comes to producing high quality, story specific covers and their early 2018 releases are no exception. Even if the cover doesn’t particularly appeal to my taste, there’s always something to love about nearly all their covers.

I adore the covers for Debra White Smith’s Austen retellings. These stories first released in the mid 2000s (Harvest House) and I have the originals with covers not as cute and fresh. These are fun romances and I hope they release the other three based on Sense & Sensibility, Northanger Abbey, and Mansfield Park.

Jocelyn’s, Jennifer’s, Lisa’s, and Conni’s are the ones that catch my eye immediately, and I’m going to guess Jennifer’s might be our expert cover commentator Aaron’s favourite! Speaking of, Aaron, I’m particularly interested in what you think of Tracie’s,  with no decapitation but the stunning hat obscuring the heroine’s face.

As many of you know, I do enjoy having male characters on covers so Melissa’s and Susan’s caught my eye. But I’m obviously getting old, as Susan’s model looks oh so young to me, so it doesn’t quite work for me 😉 I can’t go past Beverly’s cover either because the little guy is so stinking cute! It’s rare that an Amish cover appeals but this one managed to catch my eye!

Patrick’s and Jill’s are stunning – perfect for their genres – and Angela’s appeals to me much more than the first in this series. I’m afraid Nancy’s is my least favourite of her Defenders of Justice series. I’m not a fan of the pink font and the dressy blouse seems an odd fit with the converse shoes.

All that said, Bethany House continues to be a leader in cover design and their investment in this area no doubt contributes to their success.

I’m keen to dive into most of these novels, but particularly A Refuge Assured, Keturah, Judah’s Wife, A Light on the Hill, and A Chance at Forever. These books are all on Amazon now so you can click on the title links and pre-order to your heart’s content!

Would love to hear your thoughts, as always. Which covers/stories catch your eye?

Judah’s Wife: A Novel of the Maccabees by Angela Hunt

The Silent Years #2

Seeking peace and safety after a hard childhood, Leah marries Judah, a strong and gentle man, and for the first time in her life Leah believes she can rest easily. But the land is ruled by Antiochus IV, descended from one of Alexander the Great’s generals, and when he issues a decree that all Jews are to conform to Syrian laws upon pain of death, devout Jews risk everything to follow the law of Moses.

Judah’s father resists the decree, igniting a war that will cost him his life. But before dying, he commands his son to pick up his sword and continue the fight–or bear responsibility for the obliteration of the land of Judah. Leah, who wants nothing but peace, struggles with her husband’s decision–what kind of God would destroy the peace she has sought for so long?

In 1772 England, Lady Keturah Banning Tomlinson and her sisters find themselves the heiresses of their father’s estates and know they have one option: Go to the West Indies to save what is left of their heritage.

She could desperately use an ally, but even an unexpected reunion with a childhood friend leaves her questioning his motives.

Set on keeping her family together and saving her father’s once-great plantation, can Keturah ever surrender her stubbornness and guarded heart to God and find the healing and love awaiting her?

And marriage prospects were out of the question . . . until now.

Her father has found someone to marry her, and she hopes to use her love of cooking to impress the man and his motherless sons. But when things go horribly wrong, Moriyah is forced to flee. Seeking safety at one of the newly-established Levitical cities of refuge, she is wildly unprepared for the dangers she will face, and the enemies–and unexpected allies–she will encounter on her way.

Yet in revolutionary France, it is a death sentence when the nobility, and those associated with them, are forced to the guillotine.

The Road Home

The Road Home by Beverly Lewis

Lena Rose Schwartz hadn’t planned to leave her Old Order community in Centerville, Michigan. But then, she could not have foreseen the accident that made her and her siblings orphans. After her parents’ funeral, her younger brothers and sisters are farmed out to various nearby relatives. But when the deacon in charge of the arrangements tells her there aren’t places enough for everyone, she agrees to go live with her father’s second cousin and his family in Lancaster County, Pennsylvania.

Beside the fact that Lena has never been more than a few miles from home, she’s never met the family she will now be living with. But worse than that is the thought of being separated from her siblings. How will they manage without her to care for them–especially eight-year-old Chris? And what about Hannes Lehman, the beau she was sure would soon be asking her to marry him? It was true that he was not the man her father would have preferred for her. Maybe that was what the deacon was hinting at when he said “a fresh start might do you good.”

It won’t be forever, she consoles herself. I’ll come back as soon as I can to take care of my family–and to make a home with Hannes. But doing so may prove far more complicated then she ever imagined.

37 Responses to Coming in early 2018 from Bethany House

  1. AWWW! I had no idea Debra’s series were being re-released. I read those years ago, and loved them so much. Seeing these stunning (fresh and vibrant, not to mention complimentary to our current cover design trends) re issues makes me a. want to re-read them and b. buy them in these new designs! :)

    Of course, beyond these, I’m excited for Melissa’s and Lisa’s. Tracie’s cover is really pretty and “different” than her normal but without being too drastic so that fans won’t still be drawn in. (Love the pop of red!) Jennifer’s series also interests me so I’ll have to keep an eye out for that one. :)

  2. Yay! I love seeing what’s coming! I hadn’t heard about Mary Connealy’s new series so I’m really excited about that one. I always love the novella collections by her, Karen, melissa and Regina, so that’s another one I can’t wait for. The Austen retellings look fun too!

  3. Hey Rel! Thanks for the shout-out, but I’m not sure about the expert part. Well, you got close to my favorite of this batch, and this favorite is actually one of my favorites of all-time, Tracie’s new one! I absolutely LOVE, LOVE, LOVE many times over this cover! As Rissi mentioned, it is similar enough to other covers of Tracie’s but it is different, too. I love the dark backdrop and the fantastic red and black hat against it. I actually don’t mind the eyes being covered by the hat as that, along with the colors, give the cover a mysterious feel that matches the series and book titles as well as the synopsis. I am sure Tracie is over the moon for this one! Now I can’t wait to see the others in the series! I also love Roseanna White’s cover! The violin along with title and the art deco touches make for a great addition to the first in the series. Jennifer Delamere’s is gorgeous! I am a bit surprised, however, to see more of a portrait look while the first had more of a full-body look. I love the winter scene, as usual, of Lauraine’s new one! I also like the knitted sweater or shawl she is wearing as it is time and area appropriate. And I love Melissa Jagears’ new cover. As with the previous one in this series, they used a great way to not show the facial features of the gentleman without a decapitation. I do really love Lisa Bergren’s cover, and I am excited about the time period-my favorite, but it is basically the same as the cover for Annette O’Hare’s “Northern Light.” As a guy, I have to say I like seeing my gender represented from time to time on covers, too, and Susan Anne Mason’s cover does it well. But I mainly love the house in the backdrop! I love Connilyn Cossette’s cover. The colors and the backdrop work great. I also am happy to see her continuing with stories set during Bible times with fictional main characters. Angie’s is beautiful, too! I will say that this model does have a bit too much makeup on. While I think it worked for Cleopatra on the previous cover, it is a bit much for Leah at this time historically, at least that is the perception I think most will have. I like Tracie’s with Kimberley Woodhouse a lot, but something about it doesn’t quite pop like the first of the series did for me. I admit I am disappointed with Jocelyn Green’s cover. As I mentioned before with another title, this is my favorite time period and I look forward to reading this one. The colors of the dress and the fan along with the lace touches are gorgeous! The flourishes in the corners are nice, too, but the decapitation is so unnecessary. Instead of working at hiding the features and making them nondescript, it is just distracting from the rest. The same with the cover on the novella collection. The knotted rope in a heart shape is a fantastic touch and definitely is noticed. As for the head, enough of the hair shows to know the color and style, and some of the facial features show. The cutting off of the top of the head, again, is just distracting and takes away from the overall look. They remind me of looking at photos by bad photographers who can’t center subjects well for portraits. I agree with you about Bev’s new cover. That little boy is adorable and makes the entire cover pop! I do like the touches of the leaves and the lantern on the weathered porch, too. I agree with you about Nancy Mehl’s, too. The yellow color of the series number would have been better for the author’s name. I like Patrick Carr’s fine, and Jill Williamson’s is ok, but as I’ve said before about the style, this title is now basically the green one of the series. As for Debra’s, I like them ok. They kind of look like a traditional Bethany historical person cover and a Katherine Reay cover had triplet girls. :) As always, thanks for sharing, Rel. Have a blessed day!

    • We can agree to disagree on Jocelyn’s but generally I’m with you on most of your other comments. Always enjoy reading your thoughts, Aaron, and getting a male perspective. You are right about Lisa’s and Annette’s covers. Oh dear!

  4. Oooh! I LOVE Judah’s Wife! The cover and the synopsis. I hadn’t seen that one yet. I have to say, I also love Tracie’s cover. Jocelyn, Lisa, and Rosanna all have lovely ones too, but I’d already seen and gushed over them. 😉

    • I love that publishers are getting covers to their authors before they are live on Amazon, Katie. It’s so much nicer for authors to get the chance to reveal their covers before Amazon does, and then subsequently me!

  5. So many lovely covers!! My favorites are Angela’s, Jocelyn’s and Tracie’s. Your comment about Susan’s cover cracked me up and I have to say it is true for me as well. :-)

    As for which ones I’m most excited to read: A Refuge Assured, A Light on the Hill, A Most Noble Heir and A Chance at Forever. I’d like to read Jennifer’s and Angela’s too, but need to read the first in the series first.

    Happy weekend!

    • Staci » We are obviously ageing, Staci – least we are doing it together! Great choices to read first, too :) Although, you usually can’t go wrong with a Bethany House book, no matter cover preferences :)

  6. Wow! Just the book covers make me want to read every one of these books! Looking forward to their release!!!

  7. Hah. I literally just donated my entire set of the Austen books because (like you) the covers were not so nice and I don’t think these were ones I’d be rereading. These updates however look fantastic and I would have kept these on my shelves!

    Also that it probably the best cover Tracie Peterson has ever had. It’s lovely.

  8. I actually prefer the original covers of Debra’s books, but then I like old things.

  9. Despite the decapitation I really like Jocelyn’s cover. The lacey border on the corners of the book, the profile, dress, and fan all draw my eye in and make me want to know this lovely lady’s story. I also like Tracie’s with her jaunty hat and beautiful necklace. The black and red colors are a fantastic dynamic. Although, I really like Connilyn’s cover, it’s the story I can’t want to get my grubby little hands on. I finished her “Out of Egypt” series a couple of weeks ago and it was an excellent. So excited to read Moriyah’s story and am super thrilled it’s the first book in Connilyn’s next series.

    • Amy » Love your comments, dear Amy! Always xo My book club just discussed Counted with the Stars and Conni joined us via Skype to chat – it was great fun!

  10. I can’t wait to get my hands on some of these books! I actually started salivating looking at some of the covers and reading the descriptions — kind of like when you see a pizza commercial on tv with the thick stretchy cheese. 😛

    • I wasn’t done yet and my comment sent. 😮 Anyway, I can’t wait to read Keturah. The cover, blurb, everything about it is perfect! Love Jocelyn’s cover, agree about the model looking too young on Susan’s, but love her books.

      • Diana » I love everything Lisa writes, Diana, so I’m with you :) As far as Susan’s model goes, he may be perfectly aged for the story, it’s just me that’s getting old, I think – hehe!

    • Diana » Here’s a napkin, Diana 😉

  11. WOW Rel,
    These are all fantastic looking books. The covers are all so appealing!
    There are many I really want to read. Angela’s is simply beautiful, and so is Lisa’s, but my eye was also drawn to Roseanna’s, Connilyn’s, Jocelyn’s, and Traci’s. They are all beautiful!
    I also agree with you that Susan’s guy seems a bit young, but he sure is handsome. Looks like a fun book to read.
    I can’t wait for all of these to come out!

  12. What a great bunch of stunning covers! I’m looking forward to reading so many of these. I love Roseanna’s, Jocelyn’s, Melissa’s, and Jennifer’s. Susan Anne Mason’s is also beautiful, despite the young looking guy. Maybe he’ll mature by the time it comes out. 😀 I’m wondering how old he’s supposed to be in the story. So many beautiful covers and intriguing stories! Thanks, Rel, for the previews!

  13. I wasn’t crazy about the pink either. I wondered if it would turn male readers off. Hopefully, by the third book in the series, readers won’t be deciding to read the book because of a color choice. In response to one person’s comment: They already used yellow for another cover in the series. I think they were trying to pick something different. I’ve grown to like it a little better. I really like the rest of the cover.

    As far as the blouse, it’s exactly right because of the story. The main character had to change clothes quickly and left the blouse on she wore with her business suit. Might look a little odd, but it’s correct.

    I really like the model and even changed my character’s eye color to match hers!

    The other covers are great. Bethany House certainly goes above and beyond with their covers. I think the guy on Susan’s cover is a doll. Yes, he looks a little young – but everyone looks young to me. Sigh.

    • Nancy Mehl » Thank you SO much for stopping by and taking the time to share some background to your cover, Nancy. I do love that the cover reflects the story as you talk about her clothes. And while I didn’t mention it in my initial comments, I do like that she is holding her keys – make it real :)

      Yes, most are looking young to me, too!

      Appreciate you!

  14. Some stunning covers!! Especially Connilyn and Lisa’s! The colors!

  15. SQUEEEEE!!!!!! Bethany House has set the bar high again for these STUNNING covers!

    REL, thank you for sharing these lovelies!

  16. Cheryl Baranski

    What an amazing list of books by some very talented authors! I am looking forward to reading all of the books.

  17. Wow Bethany House just keeps getting better with their covers. These are stunning! Can’t wait to read the books that come with them.
    Blessings. Jiy

  18. Wow. So many great authors and lovely book covers! I do like Melissa Jagear’s, Angela Hunt’s, Mary Connealy’s, Roseanna White’s, Jocelyn Green’s….
