More About the Author

Elaine Littau enjoys writing books. Her first series was the Nan's Heritage Series which includes "Nan's Journey", "Elk's Resolve", "Luke's Legacy", "The Eyes of a Stranger", and "Timothy's Home". Her second series is, "Rescued...A Series of Hope". Book 1 in this series is "Some Happy Day". Book 2, is "Capture the Wandering Heart". Book III is "Walk Slowly Through the Dark". Book IV is "The Restless Kansas Wind". Book V is -"Running to Her Future".

She began writing a new genre in November 2012 with the title "Six Miles From Nashville". It is a story that takes place in 1975 about a girl from Guymon, Oklahoma who goes to a large Bible College in Missouri. Her first launch into adulthood lands her in difficult situations involving much loss and challenges.

Book II in The Nashville Series is "Christmas in Nashville." This book is a continuation of Betty's story, but it also develops the story of her brother and his experiences as a Vietnam POW. New characters are introduced who add to the challenges of life in general.

Book III in the Nashville Series is "Restored" a book about rebuilding a life after incarceration.

In a departure from fiction, Elaine has released a devotional book based on her faith in God. "Whispers: Devotional Thoughts" is about Elaine's study of the Bible and inspirations in writing articles and giving speeches.

Her first attempt at a humorous biography of sorts is "Three Teeth and a Toenail". It is about the crazy things that have happened to her family in their life together.

Elaine and her husband, Terry have been married many years and have enjoyed raising their 3 sons in the Texas Panhandle area where they live on a small acreage. They enjoy spending time with family and friends and especially playing with their five grandchildren.

She enjoys public speaking and meeting her readers at book signings.

This is the first book that I have read by this author. I enjoyed the story itself, but it also drove me crazy to read it. It hopped from character to character which sometimes made it hard to follow. But what I really had a hard time with was the time hopping. Several times I had to turn back a page to see if I missed something.

The other issue I had was not enough character development. I realize that a lot of the characters were introduced in previous books, but as a reader that hasn't read any of them, I kept wondering who these people were. I love reading books in a series but am a firm believer that each book should stand on its own.

I notice from other reviewers that this seems to be this author's style of writing. I will probably try another book from this author, but if it is her style of writing, I'm not sure if I will read any after that.

The first book I read by Elaine Littau was The Eyes of a Stranger. I was quickly taken in with the characters and Elaine's style of writing, so I was eager to read Some Happy Day.

There are many characters in Some Happy Day and I found myself identifying with many of them along their personal journeys. Though I did not go through the same experience as each character, the feelings they express are feelings all of us can relate to in some way. There is Nobel who finds a baby in a field and instantly feels the need to protect her even at the risk of his own future. Then we have Myrtle Jennings, a young woman, whose life is changed when strangers abduct her. Myrtle feels she is now damaged goods, unworthy of someone else's love. Constance Brooks, an orphan herself, spent years taking care of other people's children. Her world is turned on its axis when she finds out the truth about her own parents. Will she ever find happiness? In addition, I really enjoyed the character of Nate Young (Grandpa). His wisdom was refreshing.

Each chapter of Some Happy Day left me wanting more, which is nice since this is the first book in Elaine Littau's "Rescued" series. I believe readers will find themselves captivated by both the characters and their stories!

This first installment of Elaine's "Rescued" series is a fast read because you won't be able to put it down once you start. This is a great start to her second series. I enjoyed every chapter and couldn't wait to see what was going to happen next. I highly recommend this book - as well as all of Elaine Littau's previous books. I am excited for the next book in the series to be released!

How do we pick up the pieces when life unravels around us? Author Elaine Littau addresses this question in her historical Christian fiction book "Some Happy Day." Elaine introduces us to several characters who experience some of the hardships of life, but are able to find a way through them and continue on. Elaine's book has a strong Christian theme and shares the true love of God and the power of forgiveness. The story is engaging and that makes the book a fast read. This book does have a number of different characters in it, and I was able to follow their individual storylines and keep everyone straight. I love the detail that Elaine puts in her books and how she strives to stay true to the historical context she writes in. Some Happy Day is well worth the read.

Kristi Burchfiel, author of applicable Bible Studies and Devotionals

Elaine Littau is a very talented writer that grabs your attention and keeps it. I have read all except one and they are fabulous. She gives you a scene and it is as if you are there too. I appreciate the historical and Christian aspects of her books. I can't wait for the next book she is working on.... I have even given her books to my mother in law for presents and she loves them too.

I downloaded "Some Happy Day" on my e-reader and read the book non-stop! Could not put it down! Loved the journey of the characters with their life experiences...from the orphanage to the abducted girls. What an eye opener of how some lives were changed! Thanks for writing a great, Christian book!

Found this book to be boring. Did not get very far but just couldn't read anymore. Would not recommend it.

I enjoyed this very much because it wasn't told in a way to be gruesome, but still the story is very clear. It's about some women that were either raped, beaten within an inch of her life, or abandoned. Each comes through their traumatic experience, but it takes some time.
Great story telling, and kept my interest.
