This week’s great book cover is for A House in the Sky: A Memoir by Amanda Lindhout and Sara Corbett.
I love this cover. It’s minimalistic yet elegant, and it reminds me of a wood cutout.
The memoir is about a brave woman whose love of traveling leads her to Somalia, “the most dangerous place on earth,” where she’s abducted on her fourth day and held hostage for over a year. She “converts to Islam as a survival tactic, receives ‘wife lessons’ from one of her captors, and risks a daring escape,” according to the description.
It sounds good albeit upsetting.
