Threads of Hope
The year is 1848, and Kristin Eikaas has traveled from
with dreams of a new life. But when she arrives, she finds one disappointment
after another. Worse, her superstitious uncle now believes that his neighbor’s
Oneida Indian wife has put a curse on Kristin. Everyone knows the Sundbergs put
spells on people…
Everyone except Kristin. Her run-ins with Sam Sundberg only prove that he is a good man from a Christian family. But when her uncle discovers she’s been associating with Sam, his temper flares. To escape his tyranny, Kristin gratefully accepts a job as the Sundbergs’ house girl, finding solace at the family’s spinning wheel.
In the time Sam and Kristin spend together, their friendship develops into much more, and Sam prays about a match between them. But opposition threatens to derail their newfound love. Will they have the courage to stand up for what is right—even against their own families?
Threads of Faith
Julianna Wayland is running for her life! She hides in a crate on London’s dock, only to be loaded onto a ship bound for America. During the voyage she meets Captain Daniel Sundberg, and by the time they reach New York’s harbor, she is certain she’s in love with him.
The only problem is, Daniel has plans for himself—plans that don’t include her. Daniel has wealth and influence on his mind, two things that were never very important to his father Sam Sundberg. He attributes his father’s lack of ambition to his overbearing mother, Kristin. No, Daniel longs for more than the life his parents live as farmers in Wisconsin.
But will a twist of fate prove that God’s ways are higher than Daniel Sundberg’s? And as Julianna struggles to find her place in a new world, will trouble from her past derail the life she is looking for?
Threads of Love
Emily Sundberg considers herself a proper school teacher of the Twentieth Century. But a decade ago, she behaved more like a tomboy than a young lady. So when the neighbor’s grandson came to visit one summer, they became fast friends and Emily even got her first kiss –
Unfortunately, Jake Edgerton told all the boys at church. Rumors circulated, the taunts and teasing began. Emily couldn’t confront Jake about it, either. He’d returned to Fallon, Montana and she never saw or heard from him again in spite of the letters she sent.
Over the years she’d worked hard to prove to the people of Manitowoc, Wisconsin that, despite past mistakes, she really was a decent, upstanding young woman, one befitting of a school teacher. But even with the passing of time, Emily’s never forgotten Jake and how he nearly ruined her life…
And now he’s a U. S. deputy marshal and he’s back in town!
