After duty as an ambulance driver in World War I, Ellie Morgan returns to Chicago to take up her share of the work in her grandparents’ department store. Ellie doesn’t want to alienate her family or disappoint them, but despite a six year effort to settle in, she feels increasingly trapped in store routine. Meanwhile, her grandmother urges her to marry a local politician and help him succeed in his chosen field. Ellie’s grandfather, however, wants to see her happy and independent. “Go West, young woman, go west,” he advises paraphrasing a popular quotation of the day. So with Granddad’s help, Ellie secures a job on a ranch in Colorado and sets out to prove that she has the necessary character to succeed at a third vocation.
When Aldon Leitzinger meets Ellie’s train in Clifton Colorado, he introduces himself as the foreman of the ranch. But the more people Ellie meets in the community, the more apparent it becomes that she is in demand to fill a number of roles for which she is not prepared. Desperate to prove herself, she settles in to please everyone, a task that puts her at risk of failure in every attempt at finding a new and happier life. Continue reading →

About the Book
Caroline and I walked out the back door and went into the barn. “What are we going to do?” Caroline asked. “Head out on our own. Saddle Whitey, please.” Caroline’s mouth gaped open. “They’ll find us.” “I know.” Caroline sighed. “What can we do then?” I shook my head. “We can stick together. Always.”Continue reading →
I need some questions and fast (thus the second post in one day). I have a character interview I want to do for my main character of my soon-to-be-released book, “All the Way My Savior Leads.” Is there anything you would like to ask Henry Salisbury? If you don’t know the story at all, but have a question that could still apply to any character of any Historical Fiction book, feel free to chime in.
You can either comment below, email me, or use the contact form to the left.
Here’s the description of the book if that helps at all:

Tragedy stole everything from him … except her …
Three years ago, an illness orphaned Henry and Caroline Salisbury. The harsh years at the orphanage have forged a strong bond between the pair.
But Henry’s about to age out.
He must choose whether to leave his only family behind in relative safety, or take her with him as he pursues dreams of owning a farm. Henry trusts that God has a plan for him, but little does he know that others have plans for him and his younger sister as well. He will need all his faith to find the right path.
Hi! My name is Titus. I am the main character in Faith’s new book, Savior, Like a Shepherd. Today, I’d like to tell you a bit about myself. My author thought this was going to be a character interview, but I don’t like interviews. I’m more of the type who just likes to talk unstructured. First, I’ll let Faith tell you a little bit about the book, herself, and her giveaway. You’ll definitely want to check out the giveaway.
About the Book
The ground shook and a rumble sounded through the air as the train squealed to a stop. Maybe, just maybe, I could carry someone’s bags without the porter taking notice. And then there was the even bigger maybe: Maybe I could get enough money to at least buy a crust of bread for Trevor and Tabitha to share.
I hid behind the boxes in the freight yard and kept one eye on the porter, and the other on the second class passenger car. The porter had his attention on the first class car, so I slipped into the gathering crowd.Continue reading →
