Exclusive Cover Reveal: Belleweather by Susanna Kearsley

Can you feel the excitement as we reveal the cover of Susanna Kearsley’s upcoming Belleweather?( A | BN | G )

Her previous covers have a similar look. They remind me of a whimsical, old photo, but this new cover is a big departure.

Interested in the upcoming Belleweather or haven’t heard about it yet? Here’s the plot synopsis:

“The house, when I first saw it, seemed intent on guarding what it knew; but we all learned, by the end of it, that secrets aren’t such easy things to keep.”

It’s late summer, war is raging, and families are torn apart by divided loyalties and deadly secrets. In this complex and dangerous time, a young French Canadian lieutenant is captured and billeted with a Long Island family, an unwilling and unwelcome guest. As he begins to pitch in with the never-ending household tasks and farm chores, Jean-Philippe de Sabran finds himself drawn to the daughter of the house. Slowly, Lydia Wilde comes to lean on Jean-Philippe, true soldier and gentleman, until their lives become inextricably intertwined. Legend has it that the forbidden love between Jean-Philippe and Lydia ended tragically, but centuries later, the clues they left behind slowly unveil the true story.

Part history, part romance, and all kinds of magic, Susanna Kearsley’s latest masterpiece will draw you in and never let you go, even long after you’ve closed the last page.

The book was due out in October 2018, but Sourcebooks Landmark has bumped up the release to August 7th! Yay!

Now let’s hear a drumroll for the cover.

Are you ready?

Gaze upon Belleweather!

Belleweather by Susanna Kearsley. The cover is a royal blue and it's showing a scene at nighttime. There's a dark, shadowy tree in the middle, also reflected in the shiny water below it. It's surrounded by a starry sky and golden whorls. There's a silhouette of a woman in a dress beneath the tree.

What do you think? I personally think it’s quite eye-catching. I know I’d pick it up in a store if I saw it.

As a bonus, Kearsley dropped by the Sourcebooks offices and did a video with the cover designer, Art Director Adrienne Krogh, about the process of creating something new.

Sarah: I LOVE this video. With all the discussion online and off about cover art and the process of cover development, listening to Susanna interview the designer and art director is (for me) the best part of this reveal.


Excited for Belleweather? What are your thoughts on the cover design? Let us know!
