Nan’s Heritage Series
It’s no secret that I love books!
However, in my quest for new books that are in line with my Christian morals, my choices seem to be dwindling. My family looks to Philippians 4:8 as the standard when searching for books, or any family entertainment for that matter. Having said that, I would like to introduce to you a series I am thrilled to share!!!
Desperate to save her life and that of her five-year-old brother, Nan packs and flees an abusive home, embarking on a journey that will test her faith, determination, and spirit. Set in the 1800s, Nan’s Journey follows Nan and her brother, Elmer, as they seek safety and find refuge and hope in the arms of a family of strangers–including Fred Young, a disgruntled preacher turned mountain man, who reaches out to help, only to find a hope and love renewed in his own heart.
Driven to escape his past and the demons who haunt him, Elk discovers a love he long thought dead. Set against the rugged beauty of the Colorado Rockies of the 1800s, Elk’s Resolve follows the travails and triumphs of Elk, the White Indian. Guided by the hand of God, he finds his true self and defeats the voices who demand his destruction.
Thirst for love drives Ruby away from her childhood home, causing her to grow up faster than her thirteen years could fathom. Her catastrophe catches Luke in its clutches and he must choose the legacy he will leave behind.
The Eyes of a Stranger:
Rejection was an emotion Gertie Brenan knew well. At the age of eighteen, she finds herself at the threshold of life and comes to realize that because of the rejection of her fiancé, many options are open to her. Her childhood rejection held her captive; now it gives her freedom that few women of her time were afforded.
The old trunk sat unclaimed on the depot platform for more than two decades. John Forrester’s decision to use it as an escape vehicle would result in it becoming either an untimely coffin or a way to freedom for his only nephew, Timothy.
“Timothy’s Home”, Book 5 of the Nan’s Heritage Series, brings the story of the trunk and the people connected to it full circle. Will Timothy find a place to call ‘home’?
The entire series is wonderful! I am going to personally share about Luke’s Journey. Here is what amazon says and then I will give you my thoughts :).
Pursuit of adventure caused Luke and Bonnie to join the wagon train west. Thirst for love drove Ruby away from her loving home and caused her to grow up faster than her thirteen years could fathom. Catastrophe caught Luke in its clutches and made him choose the legacy he would leave behind. In Luke’s Legacy, Book III of the Nan’s Heritage Series, author Elaine Littau depicts characters that must live with the decisions they make. Full of passion, heartbreak, deception, romance, and resolve, Luke’s Legacy promises to hold you captive from the first pages.
I loved this book! It was a page turner to the very end! During the trip West, Luke and Bonnie have plenty of adventures! There is a lot of suspense and action that will keep you wanting to read more and more! What I loved best was seeing the family grow through these stories and keeping God first. I love how Elaine uses scripture and Biblical truths to weave an amazing story! All of Elaine’s books are wonderful, and this is just one story I wanted to share on the review.
