#CoverCrush Miss Violet and the Great War by Leanna Renee Hieber

For new visitors do I want to explain that Cover Crush is something that my friend Erin over at Historical Fiction Reader came up with and I adopted the idea together with some other friends. And, now we try to put up a Cover Crush every week. You can check below my pick of the week for their choices this week!

A brand-new, stand alone adventure in Leanna Renee Hieber's groundbreaking, critically acclaimed Strangely Beautiful series; full of passion and power, set during World War I

Leanna Renee Hieber's debut novel, republished by Tor Books as Strangely Beautiful, won two Prism Awards and established her as one of the founders of gaslamp fantasy—tales of the spiritual and supernatural set in the Victorian Era.

Miss Violet and the Great War begins in Victorian times and sweeps readers forward to the incredible tragedy of the First World War, when millions died in the trenches and on the battlefields. Violet Rychman has been gifted from birth with the ability to see and hear ghosts...and with terrible visions of a future conflict. When war erupts, Violet knows that it is time for her to take up her life's great mission—to attempt to shorten the war and to save lives by using the supernatural abilities she was born with, and the new powers bestowed on her by the ancient Muses.

One woman, alone, trying to stop an international conflict. It seems impossible. But Violet has allies she hasn't even met yet.


The cover for Miss Violet and the Great War is just the kind that makes me curious to learn more about the book. I love the title and I'm curious to know more about the feathers behind the cover. The title indicates that this is a WW1 story and the barbed wire captivates that feeling. 

Check out what my friends have picked for Cover Crush's this week:
