Help!

I have a dilemma. I have three book cover ideas to choose from for Amazing Grace, but I can’t decide which one I like better or looks more consistent with the first two. That’s where you come in. I posted something on Facebook and Google +, but there is an almost two-way tie. That’s where you come in.

First, the blurb:

Caleb hurried to the post office. He had to get in and out before his sister finished at the general store. “Any mail for the Stuarts?” He asked the post master.

The post master took a lazy look at him over the top of his eyeglasses and gave a heaving sigh. “Yep. Somethin’ from Ohio and somethin’ from Montana.”

Caleb waited until the large man put the letters lazily in his hand. As he left he wondered why Anna had written something to Montana. None of my business. He folded and stashed the Ohio letter in his back pocket. It would get wrinkled, but at least Anna wouldn’t know about it.

As Caleb struggles through some inner battles, he secretly starts a correspondence with a widow and her daughter. Their unabashed faith in God convicts him and increases his inner struggles.

Unable to find a steady job, Maggie places an advertisement to become a mail-order bride. Her daughter, Rachel, is her motivation and encouragement, but if Maggie doesn’t find a job or husband soon, Rachel might not survive through the next year.

Can Caleb learn to trust God despite his past? Can Maggie and Rachel hold onto their faith despite all their trials? What will happen when they meet in person?

And now, I would like your opinions. Which cover do you like better and why? Which one would you pick up and want to read more? Which one do you think fits better with the other covers in the series?

Here are the first two book covers:

And here are the three options for Amazing Grace:

  1. The middle cover is my favourite.

  2. Travis Perry says:

    The second one, with the hat showing prominently, is the one I like least. Either 1 or 3 are fine, but I prefer the last, with the hands holding the letter.

  3. I think the last one is perfect as without the letters there wouldn’t be much of a book

  4. DK Stevens says:

    I like the hands holding the letter also 🙂

  5. Cindy says:

    The letters seem to be key to the story. #3 is my pick.

  6. garrywright says:

    I think the third one captures the story the best. 🙂

  7. Effy says:

    Three. Definitely. I don’t really like the people being in it, because none of the other two have people on the front,

  8. I like 1 and 3 – I think other commenters are probably right about the letters fitting the story.
