A Hanna author has officially released her first novel.
Corinne Hewitt held a book launch party at her quilt shop in downtown Hanna on December 22. Around 90 people went to the release, which she was very excited about.
Her book is called Jacob of Abbington Pickets.
"It is a Christian historical fiction, based at the turn of the century, it's about Jacob, he's a young lad who's honourable, hardworking, and he falls in love, and has a little bit of tragedy in his life, and how he comes to know God a little more," Hewitt explained.
She published her book through FriesenPress
You can get a copy of her book from her quilt store,  H Corinne Hewitt Quilt Patterns and Fabrics (108-2 Avenue West) in Hanna, from FriesenPress online, and Amazon.
"You can get hardcover, paperback, or ebook."
Her plans for the future include promoting her book, and making quilting patterns to go along with her novel.
