I mean it looks like they used the exact same model in the exact same dress the exact same hair style and then just took two different shots Oy vey there must have been some serious cutbacks in the book cover department Yeah I was not greatly impressed by the Agincourt Bride or by its author Joanna Hickson Feel free to consider the guitar as symbol for the Agincourt Bride and its subseuent treatment my overall reaction to the novel This review isn't goi
