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!

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!

The book started really well. But there were too many characters and too much drama going on that didn't appear to be related in any way. There was also quite a bit of reference to past stories which must take place in another one of the author's books, which is annoying since this is the first book in a series. The thing that I disliked the most was that there were several resolutions that took place though out the book but without any rising action, climax, or falling action taking place beforehand. And when there was a climax, the storyline would totally skip to the resolution. It was as if the book was liberally sprinkled with story endings without the story.

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.

"Some Happy Day" by Elaine Littau is a book you will not want to put down once you start reading it. If you are a fan of Elaine's, you know that she is a captivating writer. She does a wonderful job of drawing you into the lives of her characters. I appreciate the fact that her characters always have character. In "Some Happy Day" you will not find perfect people operating in a perfect world. People do mess up, but when they do there is redeeming grace. Life can be cruel and messy at times, but there is always hope for those who put their trust in Christ.
Like all good books, you don't want the story to ever end. The good news is that Elaine continues to write and you will meet the characters again as life does indeed go on. I am pleased to recommend "Some Happy Day" to you.

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.
