Eye Candy: Kindred by Octavia E. Butler

I really, really like this cover. It caught my eye the first time I saw it. The woman on the cover is beautiful and I like the way the image has been made to look old on the edges (it looks like an old daguerreotype) and is set with a row of slave quarters along the bottom. Great cover--it draws me to want to read the story inside.

Kindred by Octavia E. Butler
Genre: Science Fiction
Pages: 267

Book Description:
Dana, a modern black woman, is celebrating her twenty-sixth birthday with her new husband when she is snatched abruptly from her home in California and transported to the antebellum South. Rufus, the white son of a plantation owner, is drowning, and Dana has been summoned to save him. Dana is drawn back again and again for Rufus, yet each time the stay grows longer and more dangerous until it is uncertain whether or not Dana's life will end, long before it has even begun.
Eye Candy is a feature that was inspired by Marcia at The Printed Page and Daphne at Tanzanite's Shelf and Stuff, who often post about books with eye-catching covers.
