I’m using my blog today to proclaim the new cover for an excellent novel The Wind Weeps by Anneli Purchase. I reviewed this story when it was first published. It is a dramatic read with a sexually sophisticated ambiance. To my eyes, the repackage is fantastic.
A novel as emotionally charged as this one needs a cover to reflect its contrasts and nuances. When fear and desperation threaten to sweep aside all gentleness and consideration the cover has a job of work to do. The new design conveys every element of this beautifully written story and for sure proclaims its worth.
The brutal truth of Nature displays itself along the lonely coast as much as it does through the lives of handsome men and beautiful women. Set in the commercial fishing world of British Columbia, the depth of the story offers a range of choice for a cover. Anneli’s designer, Anita B. Carroll of http://race-point.com created a design that embodies the passion and emotion that simmer even within the cruel unforgiving sea.
Remember the terror Julia Roberts felt in the movie Sleeping with the Enemy? That’s the kind of terror Andrea feels about her husband, Robert. But, in her case it isn’t so easy to escape him. He has taken her to live in a remote cabin on the coast, cut off from all communication.
Andrea once loved orchids, but Robert has transmuted them into a symbol of his control over her. The orchid on the cover seems to be weeping. The blood red sky, the bleak churning sea add their abstract shadows. And yet Andrea is determined to survive and get back to the man she wishes she had married, the one who has never stopped loving her.

I have read “The Wind Weeps” and I have to say you are so correct, Emma. I couldn't put it down until I was done with it. The main character, Andrea, goes on a wild emotional roller coaster ride throughout the novel. The author's description of each locale was so vivid, I felt as though I was watching a movie. Each character was portrayed so beautifully, by the end of the story I felt a real connection with them. If you have not read this book, you just have to do so. Enjoy!
Thank you. I'm always happy to hear about it when someone enjoys reading my books. (Anneli)
The Wind Weeps is a gripping story and this new cover suits it perfectly. Congratulations to the author and cover designer.
