Cover Attractions!

This book cover caught my eye in Dar's blog! And I love it! Love the vintage effect and all that!

About the book -
Raised to be a 'new woman' by her mother and three college roommates in the 70's amid anti-war protests, feminist rallies, and finals, Rain Rasmussen discovers that putting her career first has left her overdrawn at the egg-bank, and her baby fever has now driven off her significant other.
When her terminally ill mother demands a Celebration of Life before she dies; they all confront ghosts from the past on a 'stormy' weekend in Monterey.  Bebe, the roommate closest to Rain's heart, revisits choices that have impacted Rain the most, raising doubts about God's—and her own—willingness to forgive and to be forgiven.

Dar says in her review,
Raising Rain is a novel that carries story lines that could happen to any of us. That's its appeal; you could easily see yourself in these situations and you wonder what you might do if it were you.

And her review tempts me to pick this one up :-)
Thank you Marcia for hosting! What covers are you attracted?!

Veens, it is a pretty cover isn't it. I read it on my eReader so I didn't get to see the cover all the time but I sure did enjoy the story. Thanks for mentioning my review and such - I appreciate it my friend.

Beautiful cover! I'm a total sucker for pretty covers and I buy those books, forgetting the famous line 'Never judge a book by its cover' :P
