Donna L.H. Smith
Donna L.H. Smith is a Kansas prairie girl transplanted to Lancaster County, PA. She is a graduate of Christian Writer’s Guild Craftsman program and holds two college degrees, both in Mass Communications. Currently, she is pursuing a M.Div. She’s been married to a wonderful man named Kirby for over thirty years. Her debut novel, Meghan’s Choice, made the finals of both the Selah and Will Rogers Medallion Awards. Rose’s Redemption, the sequel, also made the Selah Award finals in 2019. She blogs, speaks at workshops and holds inner healing retreats. Although she is at an age where many begin slowing down, she wouldn’t think of it. She is a former Managing Editor of www.almostanauthor.com, an award-winning website for writers.
A Shy Harvey Girl. A Young Mennonite miller. A small town in danger of extinction. Will there be a miracle? That’s Hannah’s Hope Hannah Samuelson is working as a Harvey Girl at the local restaurant when she meets Bernie Warkentyne. Then, Hannah gets bad news from her home in Ohio, and is forced to return for a while, hoping to move Grammy and her sister Lizzie back to Kansas with her. How can God work all this out? Widow Olivia Baldwin has just healed from the tragic loss of her husband two years ago. Can Sheriff Stuart Randall help her open her heart to love again? Bernie Warkentyne is struggling to rebuild his mill after a devastating fire and attract additional Russian Mennonite farmers to the area in the wake of the railhead moving to Wichita. With good news springing up all over, it looks like the town of New Boston is finally settling down when a swarm of locusts descends, eating everything in its path. As the town works together rebuild yet again, Harvey House Restaurant prepares to close its doors, and Hannah will need to find some other means to support herself. Will Bernie’s offer of marriage be the way out for her? What about Grammy and Lizzie?
Women who love historical romance westerns, prairie romances, inspirational Christian fiction readers, especially American women.
Book cover type
Other color requirements
no color requirements.
I like clean lines, but I also like creativity. I have a font style in mind for the interior, and could provide that font. It's through Heritage Type, Inc. It's Royal Signage, I think. I'm looking for a personification of Hannah. She's a plain, but attractive strawberry blonde prairie girl of the 1870s. No make-up, fresh face. Think Little House on the Prairie for fashion. The male is a Mennonite miller also of that time period, and I would love to see a personification of him in the background. The story takes place in a small western railroad town. For background, this area of Kansas is flat, perfectly flat, with prairie grasses, clear blue skies, etc. Think fresh-face country girl type for Hannah, and handsome, cute European type for Bernie, strong, but not bulky, NOT a Mr. Universe type. Think 60s David McCallum with a bit more bulk, but the same kind of look.
What to avoid
Anything garish, avant-garde, or weird. Make sure your composites are from the correct time period because I will look at each element. Thank you!
