I promised a new cover art post on twitter, a week or so ago. Here she is!!
Cannot say enough about the beautifully unique cover for Mesu’s latest Biblical novel – adore it. Mesu is a wonderful writer, too, so I’m very much looking forward to reading The Pharaoh’s Daughter. I’ve previously previewed Lori’s cover – another book I can’t wait to read.
Katie’s cover is serene, and thematically it is similar to her previous release, but it doesn’t grab me as much. Likewise with Hillary’s. However, these girls can WRITE so I’m very excited to read their new stories.
Waterbrook don’t publish as many novels as the other big name Christian publishers but rest assured, they are always quality reads.
Would love your thoughts on these one, dear readers!
