RESTORATION OF THE HEART
by June Foster

Welcome, June. What takeaway value do you hope your readers receive after reading your book?
In my story, the heroine always felt she was dumpy and unattractive, yet the handsome contractor-hero found her refreshingly attractive. I'd like the reader to ponder how God doesn't look at our outer appearance but at the person we are inside. And when one has the Lord in his life, he/she is beautiful within.

What’s your favorite place you have visited?
One of my favorite places is St. Elmo, a silver mining ghost town northwest of Salida, Colorado. St. Elmo is the real life location which sparked my story Restoration of the Heart, a fictional ghost town named Silver Cliff in which my hero and heroine work together and fall in love.

Do you type or write by hand? Computer? Typewriter? Legal pad?
I definitely type on my computer and if there were no such things as computers, I'd use a typewriter. I'm not sure how authors of old managed to write such wonderful works by hand.

Please tell us a little about your novel, Restoration of the Heart
Though a Christian, Luke Chamberlain ignored his values and indulged in his beautiful fiancé's world of alcohol, parties, and nights at her apartment. After
rededicating his life to the Lord, he vows never to fall into the lifestyle again. When the state of Idaho's Tourism Department offers his construction company the contract to renovate Silver Cliff, an 1890's silver mining ghost town, he accepts.

Janie Littleton studied history in college because life in the past is simpler than the uncomfortable reality of the present. With her extra pounds, eye glasses, and mousy brown hair, no man would find her attractive. When she's offered the job of project historian at the restoration of Silver Cliff, she accepts. But as Luke Chamberlain shows an interest in her, she doubts his sincerity. To make matters worse, someone claiming to be the miner who founded Silver Cliff in 1890 intimidates her with frightening midnight visits.

Can Luke convince Janie he's in love with the godly woman she is? Can Janie hold onto her faith as she's harassed by frightening appearances of old Ezra Barclay who died a hundred years ago?

Any parting comment? 
On the cover, my editor used one of my pictures I took at St. Elmo and inserted a picture of the heroine. So exciting to see my photography on the cover! 

Congratulations on having your photography on your book cover! Leave a question you’d like readers to answer. (Commenters are not required to answer question to be entered in the book drawing.)
In my story, Janie Littleton had always thought herself ugly, but the hero saw beauty. Have you ever known someone who may have been unattractive by worldly standards, but the more you knew this person, the more he or she became beautiful to you?

  11. I've met lots of amazing people who weren't attractive by the world's standards, but that's okay. I know that the world's standards aren't what we should be using to measure the worth of a person, thank goodness! I much prefer to focus on our divine origins. 😉 mylittlebirdie (at) yahoo (dot) com

The book sounds very interesting and I love that she went to the setting, made pictures, etc. I'd love to add it to my kindle and have it to read on a beach day.
