Overview

Jenny of L'Anse Bay, Special Edition in the series of Great Lakes Romances® is set in the Keweenaw Peninsula of Upper Michigan in 1867. Eager to escape the fiery disaster that leaves her home in ashes, Jennifer Crawford sets out on an adventure to an Ojibway Mission on L'Anse Bay. In the wilderness, her affections grow for a native people very different from herself-especially for the chief's son, Hawk. Together, can they overcome the differences of their diverse cultures, and the harsh, deadly weather of the North Country?

Michigan's Upper Peninsula wilderness, its historic Ojibway culture, and the harsh realities of the northern woods come to life in this historical retrospective on the life of a young Christian missionary. Readers interested in the ways of the Ojibway, the challenges of remote wilderness living, and a gentle love story that crosses cultural barriers will enjoy Jenny of L'Anse Bay.

About the Author

Donna Winters adopted Michigan as her home state in 1971 when she moved from a small town outside of Rochester, New York. She began penning novels in 1982 while working full time for an electronics firm in Grand Rapids. She resigned from her job in 1984 following a contract offer for her first book. Since then, Thomas Nelson Publishers, Zondervan Publishing House, Guideposts, and Bigwater Publishing have published her novels. Her husband, Fred, a former American History teacher, shares her enthusiasm for history. Together, they visit historical sites, restored villages, museums, and lake ports purchasing books and reference materials for use in Donna's research. Donna has lived all of her life in states bordering on the Great Lakes. Her familiarity and fascination with these remarkable inland waters and her residence in the heart of Great Lakes Country make her the perfect candidate for writing Great Lakes Romances®. When Mackinac and the Great Lakes Romances® series first launched in May 1989, the author and her husband and two dozen friends and relatives from Michigan, New York State, and Illinois visited Grand Hotel to celebrate, enjoying the Victorian ambiance and superb cuisine.
