It's Live!! Cover Reveal: The Suffering Tree by Elle Cosimano + Giveaway (International)

Hi, YABCers!

Today we're super excited to celebrate the cover reveal for THE SUFFERING TREE by Elle Cosimano, releasing June 13, 2017 from Disney Hyperion. Before we get to the cover, here's a note from Elle:

Hello, YABC! 

 

About six years ago, I chaperoned a school field trip to a farm with my son's kindergarten class. As we drove down this windy country road through acres and acres of corn and soy fields, we passed a field I would never forget. It was lush and green with grass, surrounded by tall trees. In the middle was a very old cemetery, a cluster of mossy leaning headstones surrounding a dead tree. It was both mysterious and completely picturesque. I had so many questions about it: who was buried there, why the tree was dead when everything around it was so vibrant and alive? I was up all night. I couldn't get the image of this tree out of my head. So I drove back the next day and took pictures. (You can see them here.) And the story of THE SUFFERING TREE started forming in my mind. About love and loss, identity and shame--the kinds of secrets that refuse to stay buried. 

 

These captivating illustrations by Justine Howlett speak so beautifully to the journey of the characters. And designer, Maria Elias, brilliantly pulls it all together into a cover that's both haunting and magical . . . perfect for this story. I couldn't be more thrilled to share it with you.

About the Book

“It’s dark magic brings him back.”

 

Tori Burns and her family left D.C. for claustrophobic Chaptico, Maryland, after suddenly inheriting a house under mysterious circumstances. That inheritance puts her at odds with the entire town, especially Jesse Slaughter and his family—it’s their generations-old land the Burns have “stolen.” But none of that seems to matter after Tori witnesses a young man claw his way out of a grave under the gnarled oak in her new backyard. 

Nathaniel Bishop may not understand what brought him back, but it’s clear to Tori that he hates the Slaughters for what they did to him centuries ago. Wary yet drawn to him by a shared sense of loss, she gives him shelter. But in the wake of his arrival comes a string of troubling events—including the disappearance of Jesse Slaughter’s cousin—that seem to point back to Nathaniel.

As Tori digs for the truth—and slowly begins to fall for Nathaniel—she uncovers something much darker in the tangled branches of the Slaughter family tree. In order to break the centuries-old curse that binds Nathaniel there and discover the true nature of her inheritance, Tori must unravel the Slaughter family’s oldest and most guarded secrets. But the Slaughters want to keep them buried… at any cost.

From award-winning author Elle Cosimano comes a haunting, atmospheric thriller perfect to hand to readers of the Mara Dyer trilogy and Bone Gap.

Hello!
That cover is stunning. I think it expresses perfectly the synopsis of the book. And besides, the choice of colours and the fact that there's a man that goes from the house to the tree reminds me of parallel universes or time travel, so it looks so interesting!
As regards with the synopsis, I find it very intriguing that there's someone that comes back from the dead (it reminds me of a Supernatural episode). I love mystery; I love the fact that there's romance and that the main character is a girl. Go, girl!

Thank you for the chance.

The cover is very pretty. Also a man climbs out of a grave under a tree, that's all I had to hear. Sounds interesting.

I have no idea how to write a post on the blog, and don't see an option except to reply to another post. I hope this counts. I LOVED the cover, and the plot sounds awesome!

The cover is definitely eye catching. The colours are visually appealing and while it is "busy" it's busy in a way that instantly draws your attention. I don't think I can think of any comparisons to this book's synopsis... I can certainly draw similarities but this is definitely something that sounds new and intriguing. Ugh! Another to add to the TBR pile... This will be a good one to read with Halloween coming up!
