Front Cover Friday – 26

Letters From Home by Kristina McMorris

Elegant and simple…I fell in love with this cover the minute I saw it. I think I was attracted to it because the ‘letters’ factor…in this day and age when getting a handwritten mail has become a rarity, seeing something like this definitely puts a smile on my face.  And the flowers  – oh they just add more sweetness to the setting, don’t they?

It’s a nice front cover, don’t you think?

Here’s the description of the book from Shelfari

Chicago, 1944. Liz Stephens has little interest in attending a USO club dance with her friends Betty and Julia. She doesn’t need a flirtation with a lonely serviceman when she’s set to marry her childhood sweetheart. Yet something happens the moment Liz glimpses Morgan McClain. They share only a brief exchange–cut short by the soldier’s evident interest in Betty–but Liz can’t forget him. Thus, when Betty asks her to ghostwrite a letter to Morgan, stationed overseas, Liz reluctantly agrees. Thousands of miles away, Morgan struggles to adjust to the brutality of war. His letters from “Betty” are a comfort, their soul-baring correspondence a revelation to them both. While Liz is torn by her feelings for a man who doesn’t know her true identity, Betty and Julia each become immersed in their own romantic entanglements. And as the war draws to a close, all three will face heart-wrenching choices, painful losses, and the bittersweet joy of new beginnings. Beautifully rendered and deeply moving, Letters from Home is a story of hope and connection, of sacrifices made in love and war–and the chance encounters that change us forever.

Sounds interesting. What do you think?

Do you like the cover? The plot? Do share.
