Welcome to Comparing Covers where I will showcase a book title that has multiple covers; from first editions, re-releases, and international releases.
I started reading books by Phyllis A. Whitney while in high school. They were recommended to me by my English teacher and after I read one, I was hooked. I’ve re-read her books countless times and I’ve almost collected all of her romantic suspense genre books. She also wrote books for young adults, but I found that I wasn’t too interested in those. You could say my love for romantic suspense started because of Phyllis A. Whitney.
Today I’m featuring her book: The Trembling Hills. Which only has one international version and a few US versions. Originally published in 1956, The Trembling Hills is a historical romantic suspense.
I have to say that my favorite cover is the 1981 one, just because it shows the drama of it all.
Sara’s childhood has been haunted by dreams of a candlelit figure glimpsed in a mirror. She now decides to follow her true love, Ritchie Temple, to San Francisco. But Sara could not know about the terrors that were in store for her.
When lovely young Sara Jerome moves to San Francisco, she is filled with anticipation. Not only does the man she has loved since childhood live there, but her father, who left mysteriously so many years ago, came from San Francisco. She feels certain that now she will finally fulfill her dreams of marrying Ritchie Temple and finding out what happened to her father.
But Sara has another dream as well, a terrifying nightmare that has haunted her all of her life. Once in San Francisco, it is clearer and more frightening than ever. What does it mean? And what does it have to do with the stormy night her father disappeared? The answers are waiting for her, as is true love, if she just knows where to look
