What a wonderful review of Alex Lyttle’s debut novel. Thanks to 2 Cooks Crafting Books for the lovely thoughts on this middle grade novel…
It gives me great pleasure to present to you the cover of the first of our Spring 2018 titles, In the Shadow of 10,000 Hills by Jennifer Haupt.
More details on the book are coming this fall, but in the meantime, I hope you like the cover we made for it. The original photo is of the lush valleys and forests of Rwanda and the overlaid colours were chosen to represent the Rwandan flag. The partially obscured words are meant to reflect on the parts of us that we keep hidden from the world. In addition, they help relate the secrets of the Rwandan hills as they kept a silent watch over one of recent history’s most gruesome events.
While the backdrop of the book is profound, this is more a story of healing, grace and finding one’s place in the world. It’s the kind of book that stays with you and I hope we’ve created a cover that does the story justice.
