Bella's Point Cover Reveal!

Today I'm helping Elizabeth Seckman with her latest cover reveal. Elizabeth is one of my favorite blogging buddies, and I was more than happy to have her here! She is bright, funny, and always supportive. Just a downright wonderful lady.
 
And her latest cover is absolutely gorgeous!
 
 
 
Did you know? In the story, Bella cares for a young Cherokee boy. The Cherokee lived in the western portion of North Carolina. They often adopted white man's ways in order to live peacefully. This didn't completely work. When gold was found, the Cherokee was sent marching on the "Trail of Tears" from the East coast to reservations in the west.

 

Isabella Troy Stanley is a divorced, slave freeing pariah surviving in the shattered post Civil War south the only way a fallen debutante knows how. 
She heads to a Yankee prison and buys herself a husband. 

Jack Byron is the former Troy plantation stable boy and object of young Bella's affection. He rejected her then, and he's still not sold on the idea of marrying her now.  
 
 It’s complicated.

 Though to Bella, it’s simple: make Jack love her, marry her, and live happily ever after. The plan seems to work...at least until her secret is revealed.


 
Elizabeth is a wife, a mom, and a writer. She has four wonderful boys, one dusty house, and three published books to her credit. Feel free to check them out and buy them HERE! Erm, the books, not the kids or the house...though all things in life are negotiable ;)

  3. Oh man I am so happy for Elizabeth!! And what an absolutely amazing cover. It's so beautiful. I am partial to stories about Cherokees, as my hubs and kids are part.

    1. Bella takes care of an abandoned Cherokee boy, so there isn't much of the Cherokee culture in the book. But when researching the area I wanted to set the book in, the Cherokee are there and they are so intriguing, I wanted to involve them in some way. A story more heavily in the culture would take more research, but I do have an idea for a future book...

    2. That sounds so interesting! I can't wait to read this one. And I hope you do write another one within that culture, that would be great!

    1. No, Sheena-kay, she befriends a Cherokee and cares for a young Cherokee boy when he is abandoned by his mother.
