    For as long as I can remember, I loved writing I even dreamed in plots I also grew up attending antique auctions nearly every weekend, so history was as much a part of my life as chores on our farm in Iowa, reading books, and playing with Barbies.So, writing historical romances fit perfectly Times may change, the style of clothes, the way we speak, but the common threads that unite us remain the same Couples fall in love Injusticeshappen We fight for what we believe in We struggle We endure We grow.After graduating from York College in York, Nebraska with an A.A and then receiving a B.S.Ed from Lubbock Christian University, I met and married the love of my life, David God hadwritten our love story, and I knew from the moment we met that he was the one It was not love at first sight by any means, but I was so sure he was it that I wrote that I d met the man I would marry in my diary We pledged our hearts to one another two and half years later.I taught high school English until my oldest child was born After that I began my career as a professional wiper I wiped noses, counter tops, tiny tushes, tears, and scraped knees.Deciding that my children were now older and less in need of my constant supervision, I started pursuing my first love again writing After joining American Christian Fiction Writers, I found a wonderful critique group and began studying the craft of writing.David and I have three children ages 18, 16, and 11 We also work in youth ministry and teach youth and adult Bible classes.Thank you so much for stopping by, friend


  • I really enjoyed this summery read It was perfect reading while celebrating July 4th, too, because a part of the story takes place during Independence Day I am giving this novel five stars for several reasons It was fun it made me laugh throughout the book It challenged me spiritually the theme of daily devotions and prayer and to allow God to control your daily activities, was a blessing to me I also learned some interesting historical facts about woman s suffrage and all the effort that woman [...]

  • A home run hitter Lorna Seilstad knows how to write characters and a story to match that always make me smile and teach core lessons on faith and life.Emily and Carter fit together like a ball in a glove problem is neither one want to acknowledge that fact Circumstances toss them together and pull them apart, tension ran thick through the story and if it wasn t just angst, it was comical and romantic I won t go into depth about the kisses sigh.I got such a kick out the trio of sisters, Emily s a [...]

  • Once again Seilstad has swept me away to the sunny shores of Lake Manawa for a delicious summer treat Following up the delightful Making Waves, this book offers another inning of fun and faith while sharing a unique and engaging story.The characters are both humorous and convicting as they stumble both literally and figuratively through the joys and trials of new love Carter and Emily are simply adorable, but at the same time there is a depth to their story that causes the reader to pause and co [...]

  • Official rating 3.5 starsA great sequel I really enjoyed catching up on old friends and meeting new while spending the summer at this wonderful lakeside resort called Manawa I did get tired of hearing so much about women s suffrage, but I knew going into this book that it would be included, so it didn t ruin the story for me I m looking forward to book 3 The Ride of Her Life

  • Another fun story Love this authors humor and her talent of pulling the reader into the story What fun it would have been to live in that time period Well, part of it, anyway I loved the characters Emily and Carter were awesome and what fun to chuckle at the differences between the two aunts and grandmother This was a great book two in this series and I m glad I finally got around to reading it.

  • A Great Catch is just as entertaining as Making Waves If you haven t read Book One, you re missing something Love it

  • While I enjoyed A Great Catch to some extent, it didn t live quite up to my expectations For one thing, I didn t even remember Emily Graham from Making Waves, so I had no connection to her I m sure she was in that book she must have been too vanilla of a character for me to notice.In addition to that, I m not fond of suffragette characters 90% of the time There s a certain obnoxious quality to Emily that I just didn t appreciate I m also not much of a baseball fan and this entire book revolved a [...]

  • I ve seen Making Waves and A Great Catch book covers and they both have made me stop in my tracks and pick them up to look inside When the opportunity came to receive a review copy of this book I jumped at the chance to read A Great Catch.Life on Lake Manawa, Iowa in 1901 was amusing and humorous to read about This novel was not all fluff, but showed what Emily Graham went thru in her fight to get women the right to vote Not everyone wanted change including the women.Emily is twenty two years ol [...]

  • Stories that have the heroine under the watch of older female relatives are always a recipe for fun, and this one is certainly no exception Emily gets all sorts of unwanted advice, grief, and commentary on every aspect of her life from her grandmother and two eccentric aunts They re all so different but they play off each other really well, ultimately creating some humorously awkward conversations and scenarios.I thought it was fun how Carter took Emily to such non traditional places for their d [...]

  • This book was similar to the first book in this series It was slow paced, under developed characters and plot points, and repetitive subject matter I mean we get it, she lives and breathes the suffrage movement Did anyone else find this completely annoying That she was so enad with the fight for her cause that she was basically running herself ragged, being rude to everyone she knew and had her priorities completely out of line So much time prattling on about the importance of her work and deadl [...]
