Today I'm delighted to be a part of the cover reveal for Spirited by Julie Cohen. Julie is a 'new to me' author so I thought we could start things off by getting to know her together.

Julie Cohen grew up in Maine and studied English at Brown University, Cambridge University and the University of Reading. Her award-winning novels have sold over a million copies worldwide, and she has twice been selected for the Richard and Judy Book Club in the UK. Julie runs an oversubscribed literary consultancy which has helped many writers go on to be published. She is a Vice President of the Romantic Novelists’ Association, founder of the RNA Rainbow Chapter, and a Patron of literacy charity ABC To Read. Her bestselling novel TOGETHER has been translated into eleven languages and optioned for television adaptation; THE TWO LIVES OF LOUIS & LOUISE was long-listed for the Polari Prize and has been optioned by Enderby Entertainment as a feature film. Her first historical novel, SPIRITED, will be published in July 2020. She lives in Berkshire with her family and a terrier of dubious origin.
I have to say that I've taken a peek at Julie's other books and not only do they sound great, the covers are beautiful. But let's get back to the matter in hand, which is of course her upcoming release, Spirited. Here's a brief synopsis for you all:
Viola has an impossible talent. Searching for meaning in her grief, she uses her photography to feel closer to her late father, taking solace from the skills he taught her—and to keep her distance from her husband. But her pictures seem to capture things invisible to the eye…
Henriette is a celebrated spirit medium, carrying nothing but her secrets with her as she travels the country. When she meets Viola, a powerful connection sparks between them—but Victorian society is no place for reckless women.
Meanwhile, on the other side of the world, invisible threads join Viola and Henriette to another woman who lives in secrecy, hiding her dangerous act of rebellion in plain sight.

I think that this might be finding it's way onto my TBR list 😉
So now I think it's time to share the cover with you. I think it's another beautiful cover, but let's see what you all think.
Isn't it stunning? Just by looking at it I want to know who about the person that the boots belong to!
Spirited is out on the 9th of July and it's available to pre-order now here.
