Greetings. I help authors publish their books. The client for this project has written a 226 page novel titled The Secret Sense of Wildflower. We need a sophisticated cover (front, spine, back). Description: Front cover should include: The Secret Sense of Wildflower a novel by Susan Gabriel Back cover should include: Set in 1940s Appalachia, The Secret Sense of Wildflower tells the story of Louisa May “Wildflower” McAllister whose life has been shaped around the recent death of her beloved father in a sawmill accident. While her mother hardens in her grief, Wildflower and her three sisters must cope with their loss themselves, as well with as the demands of daily survival. Despite these hardships, Wildflower has a resilience that is forged with humor, a love of the land, and an endless supply of questions to God. When Johnny Monroe, the town’s teenage ne’er-do-well, sets his sights on Wildflower, she must draw on the strength of her relations, both living and dead, to deal with his threat. With prose as lush and colorful as the American South, The Secret Sense of Wildflower is powerful and poignant, brimming with energy and angst, humor and hope. In its ability to create a truly original Southern voice, The Secret Sense of Wildflower establishes Gabriel as a thoughtful and powerful Southern writer. Visit the author's website at www.SusanGabriel.com Susan Gabriel writes with passion, humor and insight about Southerners and a wide variety of other ordinary, odd and interesting human beings, young and old. She lives with her family in the mountains of western North Carolina.
