I saw this cover and thought, “Ooooh! That is good!”  I love everything about this cover – from the colour, to the scenery, to the girl, to her dress, to the mist and even the font!

Love the dramatic landscape in the distance – that tells me there’s adventure.  The mist makes it all feel like a dream – but is it inviting or hostile?

Even if I’d never heard of MaryLu Tyndall before, I would definitely be grabbing this book off the shelves. In fact, I probably will when it’s released in February 2013 🙂

Helen’s favourite genre is historical fiction with a strong romantic element.  She also enjoys contemporary romance, chick-lit and YA.  She’s not caught up in the spell of fantasy fiction, despite The Faraway Tree series being a strong influence in her childhood.
Helen is currently working on her first book, a Christian young adult novel set between two opposite but equally fascinating places in Australia.
