#CoverCrush: The Hope Chest

I will freely admit that I judge books by their covers. The cover is usually what first captures my attention when browsing Goodreads or Netgalley. Actually, in all honesty, it isn't just usually, it's pretty much all the time. The cover determines if I look at the synopsis and reviews.

When I was a teenager, hope chests were something a teenage girl was given in preparation for her getting married and leaving home. It was a place or her to keep the items she had collected to help furnish her future home. Some of my friends had them, some didn't. I didn't and neither did my sisters. But the idea is sweet.

This gorgeous cover shows pretty linens with an old iron key. Is the key to the hope chest? Is it to something else? To whom does the chest belong? Who are the two girls walking along the top of the page? What is the story?

What about you? Any book covers capture your attention this week?
