Hello, dear readers! I am very excited to welcome back author Jenetta James to Austenesque Reviews today! Jenetta is here to celebrate her second release, The Elizabeth Papers. Her first Pride and Prejudice variation, Suddenly Mrs. Darcy came out last year – and I loved it (you can read all about that HERE!) I’m so happy to have Jenetta come visit and share more about her beautiful cover for The Elizabeth Papers! And as a self-professed cover-junkie, I’m so excited to learn more about the creation and significance of her cover.
Thank you Meredith for hosting me on today’s stop on The Elizabeth Papers blog tour. It is always an honour and a pleasure to visit Austenesque Reviews!
Quite a few readers have contacted me to ask about the front cover of The Elizabeth Papers, which was revealed on Just Jane 1813 a week or so ago. What’s the painting? Who’s the artist? Is the lady supposed to be Elizabeth? Who’s the child? Is it supposed to be happy or melancholy? What’s with the modern skyline at the bottom?
