Cover Attraction

Cover Attraction is hosted by Marcia at The Printed Page. She says, "I’m a very visual person and love beautiful, or interesting, cover art. It entices, and invites, me to stop and take a peek instead of walking right on by."

This week, my Cover Attraction is Jump by Marianne Ackerman.


Set during the 1995 referendum in Quebec, Jump follows the story of Myra Grant, a free-lance journalist and theatre buff who faces an empty nest and an inner call for change. Dragged down by friends and enemies alike, weary from decades of single motherhood, she breaks loose from an old life and embraces a new.

Why I like this cover:

I love the color palate - it's very impressionistic, like a beautiful Monet, an artist I love. I also like the angel statue - it seems a little gothic, which always intrigues me.

Jump was released in 2000.

Thank you for posting a Cover Attraction this week. I really expected that book to be historical fiction just by looking at the cover. Just shows that my 1st impression was off base.
