This is a weekly event hosted by Marcia of The Printed Page every Wednesday.

I love beautiful, and interesting, cover art so every Wednesday I post my 'Cover Attraction' for the week along with a synopsis of the book. Everyone is welcome to stop by and, if they'd like, post a link to their favorite weekly book cover.

I found two covers for Angels of Destruction by Keith Donohue. Which one do you prefer?

Synopsis (From B&N):

From a talented new author comes a poignant and haunting novel of creation and desire, passion and madness, art and love.

Margaret Quinn lives alone, quietly mourning the disappearance of her only child, who fled ten years earlier to join a radical student group known as the Angels of Destruction.

On a cold winter’s night, a nine-year-old girl arrives on Margaret’s doorstep, claiming to be an orphan with no place to go. This child beguiles Margaret, and together they hatch a plan to pass her off as her newly found granddaughter, Norah Quinn.

Their conspiracy is made vulnerable by Norah’s magical revelations to the children of the town, and by a lone figure shadowing the girl, who threatens to reveal the child’s true identity and purpose. Who are these strangers really? And what is their connection to the past, the Angels, and Margaret’s long-missing daughter?

    Could the child be some kind of a spy? This book intrigues me!

    I've seen the second cover and it's really pretty but never came across the first, both are equally pretty.

    That Donahue cover could have worked for The Stolen Child too. Gorgeous!

    Veens, Violet - Both covers look lovely! But I think I'm leaning towards #1.

    Naida - The premise sounds intriguing, isn't it? I'll have to check out the book.

    Oh gosh, you know I can usually pick a favorite but this time I honestly can't. I really like them both. I guess though if they were both in front of me and I was going to buy one it would be the first one.
