By a significant margin, the ‘Iowa’ cover was selected. Thank you for your votes and insights. A good case was made for both covers. A number of people made excellent arguments in favor of the dove illustration for being unique and that it would differentiate Aarons War from other books in the bookstores. Working against that 90% of books are bought online not in bookstores. Personally, I was never in favor of the dove illustration but would have yielded to the impression of potential readers and the publisher.
