Cover Story

My new novel, Flight of the Sparrow, will be published in July, and available for pre-order in a month or so.  I just received a pre-publication picture of the cover and I love it!  It’s brilliantly and beautifully evocative of the story of Mary Rowlandson and her captivity during King Philip’s War.  From the native encampment with its domed wetus, to the faint old-fashioned script suggesting the laborious effort it took for Mary to write her best-selling captivity narrative, every detail has significance.  I especially like the barely discernible birds flocking across the “sky” of the woman’s apron – they’re so suggestive of freedom and joy.

I’m really excited to share it.  And I’d love to know what you think!
