Cover Attractions!

Today I am attracted to a cover I first saw on Amy's Passages to the Past! Her blog is a visual treat to all historical fiction lovers, I am sure. 


by Vanitha Sankaran

Release Date:  April 13, 2010 | Acquired by Vanitha Sankaran/Avon Publishing

SYNOPSIS:  The daughter of a papermaker in a small French village in the year 1320—mute from birth and forced to shun normal society—young Auda finds solace and escape in the wonder of the written word. Believed to be cursed by those who embrace ignorance and superstition, Auda's very survival is a testament to the strength of her spirit. But this is an age of Inquisition and intolerance, when difference and defiance are punishable "sins" and new ideas are considered damnable heresy. When darkness descends upon her world, Auda—newly grown to womanhood—is forced to flee, setting off on a remarkable quest to discover love and a new sense of self . . . and to reclaim her heritage and the small glory of her father's art.


I so totally want this one. Totally!!
