I want a cover for the book (eBook and Paperbook) called "La hermana del masón".
It is a historical fiction novel in Spanish that tell the story about a Spanish lady (the sister of the mason) who is involved in an exciting adventure in relation of the sovereignty of Gibraltar;
It start at 1941 in Second World War; an important document leaves the Colony to be keeped in the nearest population of La Linea de la Concepción, hard repressed in the Spanish civil war and Early postwar period for its strong Masonic component.
Some events begin to happen that will makes think that the highest official Spanish authorities known about the existence of the documents.
Once finished the World War it is necessary to return them to their original site as soon as possible. However the mission will not be without problems. It will be these circumstances that will make María Moreno, almost without knowing it, become the bearer of that crucial information that could have changed the course of history.
During the almost three decades of history (1941 -1969 when the frontier is closed) we see how the protagonist is evolving discovering love and lovelessness, the passions, betrayals and tragedies of life and is involved in a loop of action, mystery and adventure that will do her grown and become a woman far removed from what would have given her a routine life according to the social canons of the time that he had to live.
That is why throughout her journey, the daily life of a woman of her time is very present. Maria will be primarily mother, wife, sister and friend, although those basic pillars of her education will often falter throughout her life.
I will like to remark this main character.
I would like a cover that would capture the interest of readers. A simple design. Based on the importance of the protagonist as a woman, in the 50s I think. I don´t want to remark in excess the place (Gibraltar), maybe just on the back of the book for the print edition if you want.
I send a photo that inspired me for the main character, maybe it can help, but you can use or not if you want as well.
You can get some ideas from the explanation of the story. You are free as well to come up with your own ideas.
I would like the title "La hermana del masón" and the name of the author "Ana Emberley" were big and easy to read in the cover.
I send a photo too of the author that could be used on the back of the book.
Synopsis and biography on back cover (just in Spanish):
Segunda Guerra Mundial. Una importante documentación que podría poner en entredicho la soberanía del peñón de Gibraltar sale de dicha Colonia para ser custodiada en la cercana población de La Línea de la Concepción, duramente reprimida en la guerra civil y temprana postguerra por su fuerte componente masónico.
Empiezan a suceder una serie de hechos que harán pensar a sus custodios que desde las más altas instancias oficiales españolas se tiene constancia de la existencia de los documentos y que existe un afán por hacerse con ellos. Una vez terminada la guerra mundial se hace necesario devolverlos a su sitio original cuanto antes. Sin embargo la misión no estará exenta de problemas, complicándose a lo largo de los años posteriores.
Serán estas circunstancias las que harán que María Moreno se convierta, casi sin saberlo, en la portadora de esa información crucial que podría haber cambiado el rumbo de la historia.
