Cover Crush: Kingston’s Project by Carrie Beckort

I am not a cover designer but I can agree that cover layouts play an important role in the overall presentation of books and I must admit, often times I first judge a book by its cover.

How do you find the strength to embrace a future that’s different than the one you planned?

For Sarah Mitchell, the answer is simple–you don’t. For two years, Sarah has shut herself off from most of the world around her. She needs to move on, but doesn’t know how to begin.

Unexpectedly, Sarah is presented with an opportunity that could change everything. Elijah Kingston, her firm’s largest client, wants her to lead a highly confidential assignment. When Sarah learns the shocking nature of Kingston’s project, she is torn between Elijah’s promise of healing and her fear of falling deeper into despair.

Kingston’s Project is a poignant story about the effects of grief and the loss of hope. Can Sarah find happiness again, or is the hold from her fear and guilt too strong to break free?


This cover stands out to me in such a reflective way. You have a girl or woman-if you will-standing by a body of water reaching her arm out and her reflection shows two other people. One holding their hand out touching hers. The third person is obviously a child. My thoughts are how this child connects to the story and what are these people’s relationship to each other? What is their life story? I hope it will be revealed in the story.

Interesting title too. Adding this book to my reading pile

Great cover for what sounds like a wonderful literary story of the “effects of grief and the loss of hope.”
