Book Description

Nobel Reeves had his hands full when he found a little toddler wandering in the tall grass of the Great Plains. Who was this child? Where were her parents? How would he evade the law long enough to see that she was safe? Would he ever have a home of his own or was he to remain a fugitive?
Kidnapped on her way home from school, fifteen-year-old Myrtle Jennings finds herself in the clutches of unsavory men. Their intent is to give her over to their boss who gathers young girls for his traveling brothel. She must escape, but how? If she does get away, how will her family and friends accept her after they find out what has happened to her?

3.0 out of 5 stars Drove me crazy! September 15, 2012
By Anne C.
Format:Kindle Edition
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.

5.0 out of 5 stars Captivating Characters! July 26, 2012
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
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!

5.0 out of 5 stars Beginning of another wonderful series June 21, 2012
By RJPrice
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
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!

5.0 out of 5 stars You just can't put Elaines books down. February 1, 2013
Format:Kindle Edition
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!

4.0 out of 5 stars An Engaging Read May 16, 2012
Format:Paperback
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 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.

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 more

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 more

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.

This is honestly the first book I have ever considered NOT finishing once I started. I did read the whole book, but found it hard to follow the characters. I would not recommend.
