This is book 2 of a 3 book series. We want this book to FLOW well with the first book, with a new look and colors.
Here's the story... The assisted living facility called Magnolia Gardens is trying to expand the base of (loving) visitors for the facility. The story is about building a bridge of past and forgotten memories to who the facilities' older residents are today. One way they do this is by locating and reuniting lost family members of the residents.
This is a story within a story. It culminates when the residents and their lost family members come together on a festive day of the Family Day Celebration party.
We would like designers to have free rein with your own concepts and ideas. Here are a few concepts we came up with.
A.) Possibly put a family tree somewhere?
B.) An elderly man and woman are stepping out of either one big mirror or two individual mirrors (each mirror or mirrors representing their pasts). These mirrors reflect images of their younger selves. They are looking forward to a big festive party tent with lots of people, and are extending a hand back to their image in the mirror, inviting their images to follow them to the awaiting party tent and people.
D.) Old concept isn't hitting the mark, we've received mostly this one...
A couple walking, providing some support for the woman. They could be walking toward the home. The home is a Southern Style assisted living. An idyllic path perhaps, beautiful flowers in bloom, rays of sun from either upper corner of the cover. Blue skies with a few fluffy clouds, maybe. The home, considering the theme, should probably be a structure that somewhat resembles a southern style assisted living facility. Suitcases or luggage not necessary.
The double exposure technique can be exquisite when done right, such as the book cover (file attached) titled “It’s always the husband.” Again, double exposure technique is just one idea, not a requirement.

We would like the book cover to be competitive in look and feel amongst the covers in the below links.
