Top Ten Tuesday: Books I’d Give Different Titles To


New Title and New Cover Needed


This book was done such a disservice by both its title and its cover!  The cover looks like a prairie story! Yet the book tells of the romance between John Bunyan, of Pilgrim’s Progress fame, and the young woman who becomes his second wife.  They were Puritans–descentors from the established Church of England. The folks who left to settle New England. Sorry, I have no great suggestions, but at least put the cover art in the era of the story. And let the title not be as smarmy as Preacher’s Bride is!

The Preacher’s Bride by Jody Hedlund
