A cover for Stranger

Stranger is my new book, coming out next April. I’ve been writing it for the last five years, in between other projects. It’s been written and rewritten so many times, that I can hardly believe that publication is now only months away and that is has a cover.
And what a cover! Designed by Ellen Rockell, of Little, Brown’s deign department, it is really beautiful. I may have to frame it.

Stranger is a historical YA novel with a dual narrative. Set in the small town of Astor in Canada, it tells the stories of Emmy (in 1904) whose quiet life is disrupted by the arrivial of a ‘wild boy’ from the forest, and Megan (1994) who has come to Astor to recover from a traumatic experience.

Here is the cover…
