Ta-Da! The SELLING HOPE Cover!

Isn't it sublime?

*sighs*

*thanks the cover gods for smiling upon her again*







About SELLING HOPE:
It’s May 1910, and Halley’s Comet is due to pass thru the Earth’s atmosphere. And thirteen-year-old Hope McDaniels and her father are due to pass through their hometown of Chicago with their ragtag vaudeville troupe. Hope wants out of vaudeville, and longs for a “normal” life—or as normal as life can be without her mother, who died five years before. Hope sees an opportunity: She invents “anti-comet” pills to sell to the working-class customers desperate for protection. Soon, she’s joined by a fellow troupe member, young Buster Keaton, and the two of them start to make good money. And just when Hope thinks she has all the answers, she has to decide: What is family? Where is home?

Cathy, isn't that girl lovely? I was fortunate enough to meet the young lady on the cover of AUTUMN WINIFRED OLIVER - it'd be too amazing to do that again! :-)
