The Perilous Journey of the Not-So-Innocuous Girl

Folks, I stumbled upon this beauty while perusing Month9Book’s blog and OMG!!!  I had to share it with you.  Who else other than me thinks this cover is AMAZING!  Wow!  The author must be over the top happy with this artwork.  I’m stunned.

What is this story about?  Well, if you can get past staring at the cover, here is the blurb as posted on Goodreads:

Lady Marguerite lives a life most 17th century French girls can only dream of: money, designer dresses, suitors and a secure future. Except she suspects she may be falling for her best friend Claude, a common smithie in the family’s steam forge. When Claude leaves for New France in search of a better life, Marguerite decides to follow him and test her suspicions of love. But the trip proves more harrowing than she had anticipated, revealing secrets and testing her strength as well as her heart. Love, adventure and restitution await her in Canada, but only if she can survive the voyage.


Publication date: 2015
Publisher: Month9Books, LLC.
Author: Leigh Statham

Leigh Statham was raised in the wilds of rural Idaho, but found her heart in New York City. She worked as a waitress, maid, artist, math teacher, nurse, web designer, art director, thirty-foot inflatable pig and mule wrangler before she settled down in the semi-quiet role of wife, mother and writer. She resides in North Carolina with her husband, four children, five chickens and two suspected serial killer cats. If the air is cool and the sun is just coming up over the horizon, you can find her running the streets of her small town, plotting her next novel with the sort of intensity that will one day get her hit by a car.

        1. I don’t know but it’s crisp, clear. I love the use of black and white with just a hint of color. All the gidgets and gadgets in her hat, the vambraces. Even the little critter sitting on her desk. It makes me want to pick up the book and read it more than the blurb does.
