I did a lot of research. I wanted those portions of the book that were historical to be accurate. As for the ending, I deliberately left it open to possibility, although at the moment I have no sequel written. We'll see!(less)

First, thanks so much for reading Faithful and I'm so happy you're enjoying it! I had to smile when I read your question, because when that cover first came to me, I asked my editor if there was any way to change the dress so that it looked more appropriate for the period. While I love the cover for other reasons, that dress has always bothered me. You're right - not only does it not look historical, it would have been highly inappropriate (not to mention cold!)
One of the things an author with a traditional publisher has no control over is the cover.
That said, I hope what you find inside is fun and enjoyable!
Cheers and happy reading - Janet(less)

Hi Diego! That is such a great question. And you got the right answer - the designers/editor decided to go in a different direction. (I'm not sure I would have, had I been given a choice, but authors don't get to choose!) In fact, The Artifact Hunter See Full Answer

“I know a place on this Earth that contains wonders enough to stop the breath. A place where the very rocks whisper and whine, where the rivers boil and the snow-studded peaks thrust into a bowl of blue; where great shaggy beasts press the earth with cloven hooves or threaten with claw and fang; where new life and lurking death coexist in the shallows of varicolored pools.”
Janet Fox, Faithful

“And when I shed my old skin, what soft and tender flesh did I expose?”
Janet Fox, Sirens
