Front Cover Friday – 3

What is there not to like in this cover ? Life  colored in sepia as half part and as much vibrant in second half part. Isn’t life like that actually ? For me it was difficult to decide what added more life to this cover. Was it the hazy picture of the couple and child or was the vibrant paisley designed part. I kind of liked the title as well. When I read the synopsis of the book; I kept on nodding that the title makes so much sense.

Book Synopsis says

When Frank and Ellie Benton lose their only child, seven-year-old Benny, to a sudden illness, the perfect life they had built is shattered. Filled with wrenching memories, their Ann Arbor home becomes unbearable, and their marriage founders. But an unexpected job half a world away offers them an opportunity to start again. Life in Girbaug, India, holds promise—and peril—when Frank befriends Ramesh, a bright, curious boy who quickly becomes the focus of the grieving man’s attentions. Haunted by memories of his dead son, Frank is consumed with making his family right—a quest that will lead him down an ever-darkening path with stark repercussions.

Interesting isn’t it ? Unfortunately I have not read a single book by Thrity Umrigar. I have read her other creations are much acclaimed as well. She creates magic with her words. Can’t wait to get this book. It has got very good reviews and lovely cover as added bonus.
