New Book Cover!

I’m so excited to reveal my next book cover! It’s a different look than the other two book covers, but I think it really captures the feel of this story.

A Home for My HeartΒ releases in the fall of 2013. Here is the catalog copy:

Sadie Sillsby works as the assistant to the matron at the Raystown Home for Orphan and Friendless Children and dreams of the day she’ll marry her beau, Blaine. But when the matron surprises everyone by announcing her own engagement, Sadie is suddenly next in line for the job. For a young woman who was once an orphan herself, a shot at such an esteemed position is a wish come true.

But the matron of the Home cannot be married. Is Sadie willing to give up her dreams of a life with Blaine and a family of her own? Is she prepared to forego daily involvement with the children as she manages the finances and logistics of the ministry? And when it’s revealed that the Home is spending a lot more money than it’s taking in, can Sadie turn things around before the place is forced to close forever?


So what do you think? Does it look like a book you’d pick up off the shelf?

  1. Hello Ms. Mateer,
    Dan Thornberg purchased the dress the adult Female is wearing on your lovely cover! He told me it was colored Blue from the original white. It looks so beautiful.

    I am so honored you chose the dress for your cover!

    I look forward to reading your book when it comes out.

    I wish you much success!

    Warmest Regards,
    Susan Marzan
