Cover Love: Two Great Covers, One Unforgettable Story

In today’s edition of Cover Love, pick your favorite between two versions of exciting new releases, rereleased classics and bestsellers that are hitting new markets.

Sometimes a book cover gets an update because it’s being released as a paperback or audio book. Sometimes a cover is reimagined for release in a different country where trends are different and sometimes a cover gets an update simply because it’s been a while and hey—we all need a little freshening up from time to time.

When we love a book, we may prefer only to see it with the cover it wore when we fell in love, but often, as with the choices below, a great cover can be made even greater the second (or third) time around. The choice is yours so tell us what you think—just this once, go ahead and judge a book by its cover.


The Dutch Wife by Ellen Keith

Two very different covers are available for this book about three people separated by war and time, who find a link that binds them to a horror but also to redemption.
