One of the most fun parts of being an author is previewing and endorsing books. I love encouraging other authors, and especially finding a gem of a book that lingers with me. When Tyndale asked me to read Maureen Lang’s new book, The Oak Leaves, I was intrigued by the dual plot lines. I love stories with both contemporary and historical plotlines, and Maureen’s hand at weaving these two together was flawless. But more than that, she wrote a story not of sadness so much as triumph. To say I was blessed by this story of hope and grace is an understatement – Maureen has taken a dark and difficult story and turned it into one with the touch of the Master. God is good. Always…and if you read the Oak Leaves, you’ll agree.
From the back cover:
Talie Ingram has an ideal life: a successful, devoted husband; a beautiful one-year-old son; and another on the way. But her world is shattered when she discovers a shocking family secret in the nineteenth-century journal belonging to her ancestor Cosima Escott. Only in reading Cosima’s words can Talie make peace with the legacy she’s inherited and the one she’s passed on to her son.
