On Topic:I was in the bargain bookstore yesterday that had a copy of a book like that. It was Tess of the D'Urbervilles and the cover in question had a strawberry on it. Having read the book I can not figure out what a strawberry has to do with the story. It also had some silly tag line that not all angels are good. It seemed misleading and odd.
The trends in publishing to have covers look like Twilight, 50 Shades, etc. The blurb on the back makes sound similar too. It may be nothing like those books, but the publishers are willing to take your money and not apologize later.
It has been awhile since I read it, but didn't Tess' seducing cousin give her strawberries? Her accepting them was supposed to be this symbolic thing of her letting him into their pants.
And the "Angel" is her husband who dumps her because of the sexual double-standard.
Not irrelevant. But anyone who is expecting Hardy to be all about romance and not about being downtrodden by double-standards be very disappointed. There is no desperate desire for eternity in Hardy. They just have sex, ruin their lives, and die.
