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.

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.
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 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.
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.
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.

I enjoyed this very much because it wasn't told in a way to be gruesome, but still the story is very clear. Read morePublished 20 months ago by Ladybug
I don't like how the book jumped around between people so much. There were at least two different stories here that are almost completely unrelated. Read morePublished on August 29, 2013 by Ashley
This book had great promise, however, there were too many characters, and story lines, for one book. That made for undeveloped characters, and the story lines needed fleshing out. Read morePublished on August 21, 2013 by Jeanette

You solely are responsible for your life. No one else is. If you want to put your hope in something, it better be you. A little boring.Published on December 19, 2012 by Mustang Fyant
