24 Tasks: Door 4 - Diwali - Task # 4

The Penelopiad - Margaret Atwood Heidi - Johanna Spyri Ladies of Letters - New and Old - Lou Wakefield, Carole Hayman The Deceased Miss Blackwell and her Not-So-Imaginary Friends - K.N. Parker, K.N. Parker Juliet Takes a Breath - Gabby Rivera A Talent for Murder: A Novel - Andrew Wilson Geisha, a Life - Rande Brown, Mineko Iwasaki

This task was hard.


And because I'm clearly lacking books that feature women holding flowers, I had to stretch my interpretation of the task. And by stretch I mean, stopping just short of a post-modern expressive dance interpretation of what can be understood as woman holding a flower. 

It would not have been a pretty sight.

So, count yourselves lucky to not have to see it.


Anyway, I have listed my covers above and there are a few more than five, just in case some should not work...


So, we have one actual cover with a woman holding flowers. Atwood to the rescue. 

Then we have a girl holding flowers - Heidi. Still close enough, I guess.

Then we have a Vera of Ladies of Letters sporting a buttonhole flower. 

The Deceased Miss Blackwell on top the grave is holding a rose. 

Juliet has a flower-shaped earring.

A flower in a hat on the cover of A Talent for Murder, and finally...

Flowers in hair on the cover of Geisha, a Life.


I had to wade through more than 2500 covers on my combined shelves to even get the ones I listed. Seriously, this was a hard task.
