Remember Sorceress by Celia Rees?
You know, the one about “Eighteen-year-old Agnes, a Mohawk Indian…”
She’s described on p. 28-29 of the first paperback edition: “She had high cheekbones and clear features; strong brows and a straight nose above a wide, full mouth and a declicately rounded chin. Her skin was the color of clear wild honey… The eyes, though—the eyes were a surprise. They were as gray as the sky on a snowy winter’s day.”
I’m not sure what shade “clear wild honey” is, and I don’t think either cover model below is a perfect fit for the description.
But, boy does the girl on the second cover look a lot whiter. If the second girl actually looks more Mohawk, or if I’m the only one who thinks she looks whiter, awesome. Because it is a gorgeous cover. But if not, I think this cover change is pretty egregious, worse than the covers discussed here and here.
