River Sing Me Home by Eleanor Shearer

Illustration and lettering

A bold and tropical cover for a novel about a mother’s search for her stolen children, set in the Caribbean after the abolition of slavery. I wanted it to feel vibrant, but not too bright, as the novel delivers a message of hope and a spirit of adventure alongside its darker themes.
