The cover is quaint but reminds me of a book my grandmother would read. The "a novel" seems silly on the cover with the title. The initial description of Sarah caught my attention, but the introduction of Dove Pond needing a savior without explaining why does nothing to capture the attention of a potential reader. Also Sarah's last name being Dove and her living in Dove Pond without a mention of her having significance in the town history is seems either like lazy writing or just crucial info missing from the synopsis. I usually like giving books a chance, but this one is a hard pass from me due to the overall bland cover and synopsis which do nothing to create intrigue.
