And the winner is ...
Against the Tide by Elizabeth Camden
What do we love about this cover?
It's not just the pop of red that draws our attention. This cover sets a clear mood - it's emotive and provocative. I can hear the dock bells and smell the salt in the air. Is this lady embarking on a journey? Is she farewelling a loved one? Or has she just arrived somewhere?
When a cover can ignite that many questions - it's a good one. No, make that a great one.
Helen's favourite genre is historical fiction with a strong romantic element. She also enjoys contemporary romance, chick-lit and YA. She's not caught up in the spell of fantasy fiction, despite The Faraway Tree series being a strong influence in her childhood.
Helen is currently working on her first book, a Christian young adult novel set between two opposite but equally fascinating places in Australia.
