A Hobo’s Wish is a historical novel by Connie Lounsbury. Based in the fictional town of Kathleen Creek, Minnesota, Dr. Pete Walker finds himself penniless during the Great Depression. Having ridden the rails, he hops off the train in Kathleen Creek and begins a new life.
Connie and I went through several design concepts before we settled on this cover. Bringing the train and a grungy looking hobo together on the cover was a fun endeavor.
A Hobo’s Wish is scheduled to publish in November from Mantle Rock Publishing.
