A STORY ABOUT AN ORPHANED CHILD
Certain things call to each of us. Some are rather universal. Some are individual.
For instance, does the plight of those killed needlessly wrench at your heartstrings? It does mine and there have been so many recently. So much unnecessary pain. Doesn’t it make you want to do what you can to first, of all, stop this senselessness, and secondly, reach out to help those who are hurting?
One thing that has always called to my heart is hurting and lonely children who are needing home and love.
You will see that theme repeated over and over in my books and JAKE’S HONOR is no exception.
Connie is determined to take her orphaned niece to the child’s father. Except Jake knows he isn’t the father. What is to happen to little Megan? What would you do if you were Connie?
I can’t help but think of a little boy we adopted. He was but a baby. But we knew it was right for us to take him. We found encouragement and direction in these words, Exodus 2:9. “Take this child and nurse it for me, and I will give thee wages.” We didn’t want wages, as in money, but we have many times received an unexpected payment. That boy is now a big, strong man. A gentle man. A man who can help us, especially with heavy chores. We have been repaid over and over for anything it might have cost us. Which, incidentally, was nothing worth counting.
In Jake’s Honor Connie’s journey has taken her half way across North America by train and by stagecoach. But the last leg of the journey is by wagon across a rickety bridge. Finally, she will reach her destination, achieve her goal and then figure out what she will do next.
It could be that her carefully laid plans are about to encounter a mighty big barrier.
A story of adventure, perseverance, commitment, and love.
