The Testament of Mariam - Ann Swinfen

This is a lovely book. I'll write more when I've finished, but I'm posting now because for some reason BookLikes is still displaying the old, much less appealing cover, and while I'm on my computer (instead of my e-reader with the teensy keyboard), I thought I'd post the totally gorgeous current one designed by the talented JD Smith. (Note that thanks to a bizarre twist, if you'd like to see the new cover that is the subject of this post, you have click the "Show entire post" button. But at least you can compare the new cover and the old!)

 

Ann Swinfen is my next interview subject for New Books in Historical Fiction, so stay tuned for that link in mid-February.
