Donna Gawell is the author of a historical novel The Redemption of Mehitabel Braybrooke which will be published by Heritage Beacon in March 2018.  Donna is holding a hand painted plate from the Hupka Manor House.  It was presented to her as a gift by the mayor of Niwiska, her grandparents’ village in Poland.  She views the gift as the equivalent of receiving the keys to a city.  Her most recent book, “Travel Back to Your Roots” is available on Amazon.com in print and ebook format.
