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.
"Six Miles from Nashville is also included in a collection of ebooks entitled "Modern Day Cowgirls" (Cowboys and Cowgirls) available exclusively on Amazon http://www.amazon.com/dp/B016SWSMFI

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.

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.

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!

Some Happy Day is a sweet story.
This book has more than one character in it, but it was easy for me to follow their individual storylines.
I was first introduced to Elaine's writing by her book The Eyes of a Stranger. I loved it, and so I purchased Some Happy Day, which I loved even more. I know I'm doing it all wrong because these books are not the beginning of the series, but the ending. I will definitely purchase the rest of the books in Nan's Heritage Series.
Anyway,
There are a few characters in this story you will fall in love with:
There is Nobel who rescues a little toddler after she got separated from her family. He names her Sierra. Nobel wants to adopt her, but he's having some problems with the law that he needs to straighten out first.
Then, there is Myrtle, a sweet, smart, beautiful girl with long, dark hair and blue eyes who gets abducted by some bad men and goes through a horrible experience.
Then there are Constance and Elmer who are in love, but something is always keeping them apart.
Also, there are Myrtle's loving parents, whom you will love and feel for.
There were two other people I couldn't help but hate throughout the whole story; Myrtle's fiancé and her best friend...
I don't want to give too much away, so I better stop. I'm giving this book five out of five stars, just because it made me go to another place and time and completely get lost in the wild, Wild West.

I had just begun reading Nan's Journey Nan's Journey by Elaine Littau for the third or fourth time when I found her new book, Some Happy Day. The Nan's Heritage series was such a pleasure to read that I read this one (the first in the Rescued...A Series of Hope series) in two sittings. For fan's of the Nan's Heritage series, this will be a special pleasure to read. Many friends introduced in the previous series appear here with elaborations on their character and continuations of their stories.

Mrs. Littau has a very special relationship with her book's characters; though they struggle with many hardships, they shine with a humorous, very human, and very loving, light.

I love to give her books as gifts; this one will be a joy to share. A page-turner with a life of its own, the book is fast-paced and filled with a delicious concoction of adventure and adversity, and peopled with often enigmatic, yet endearing characters. Elaine Littau crafts her books with a love that is palpable.

My only complaint is that when I've read the newest book, I have to wait for her to write another. I truly hate to see the words "The End" on the last page.
