Book Two: Daughters of Courage Series
It’s spring 1929 in Kuna, Idaho, and Elizabeth graduates from high school. Her fondest dream seems to be coming true when she enters college in the fall. But then the stock market crashes, and the Great Depression engulfs the nation.
Overnight, Elizabeth’s anxiety over tuition payments is superseded by fear that her parents will lose the farm. Yet with the courage and strength of her mother, Kathryn, Elizabeth proves God’s faithfulness through the Depression years—and finds the love of her life—in a moving story of faith, honor and steadfastness.
Daughters of Courage: Gripping Novels With Fascinating Truth
From untamed Idaho to Edwardian London, to enchanting Scotland, Kathryn recorded her experiences in the journals that became the basis for this thrilling saga, an inspiration for her family and us all.
Kathryn’s cherished daughter Elizabeth must draw on that inspiration when her dreams of becoming a teacher are shattered by a family crisis. But the courage that sustained her mother, along with the love of the dynamic Eliot Hamilton, helps her to triumph. Against the backdrop of a country devastated by the Great Depression, she finds that God has not forsaken her.
Because these are real people and real events, the experiences of faith, challenged and faith triumphant are all the more meaningful. God’s abundant love comforts and sustains these Daughters of Courage as it will sustain us all if we open our hearts. It’s rare to find novels that combine a strong Christian ethic with compelling story-telling. I hope that Donna Fletcher Crow’s loving testament to her grandmother and mother and to the brave men and women who shaped our country will touch you as much as it did me.
