Day 5 #7Days7Covers #CoverCrush

For a week I‘ll post a favorite cover each day and tag someone new to join in.

I couldn‘t of course let this week go by without a #Persephone edition. I hope to read this one later this month.

@thebluestocking do you want to share your seven favorite covers? No explanation needed.

#PhotoADayNov16 Day 4 - Set in a Small Town

One of the few #PersephoneBooks set in America, THE HOME-MAKER, published in 1924, explores gender roles in an early twentieth century, small, Midwest town. A housewife must become the breadwinner when her husband becomes seriously injured and is confined to their home with the children.

Arbol I read this about a decade ago and I was blown away at how ahead of her time this woman was. I have wanted to buy a copy ever since - I'm so glad to find out it has been republished. It really is a wonderful book. 3y
Bradleygirl Oh goodness. I love her Understood Betsy beyond reason, so must add this to the stack. 3y
