Covers are a huge thing in the book industry. No matter the saying we all judge books by their covers. I have found some pretty wonderful books hidden under some really bad covers and I have found some really boring books wrapped is beautiful covers. But still covers can make or break a book.
For How Sweet the Sound by Amy Sorrells it was the thing that attracted me to the book. It is quite lovely. It begs to be picked up and savored for a while and enjoyed. With it being a southern genre novel, that makes it even easier as we wait for spring.
At the tender age of 13 Anniston Harlan thinks she has seen it all. But as her heart awakes to love she needs to deal with her feelings of loneliness and grief. Even though on the outside her family seems perfect, it hides great drama and dysfunction.
As the back cover says 'This tender coming of age tale, inspired by the story of Tamar' this will not always be an easy read, but the best stories never are. A story of healing that we are privileged to walk alongside as a young lady finds hope.
