Just as I expected, after reading Elaine Littau's other books in the Nan's Heritage Series, The Eyes of A Stranger totally engulfed me from the time I began to read it! I loved the way it answered so many of the questions I had had thoughts of in the previous books in the Series. I highly recommend the Nan's Heritage Series and Author Elaine Littau. I check her web-site occasionally to see if she has a new book out. I fully intend to read every book she publishes!

Review by: Elizabeth Correll on Aug. 15, 2011 :
Elaine wrote another hit. One of the styles Elaine Littau uses is setting up the next situation of scene at the end of a chapter and gong right into the story. If a character is on the way to a certain location I didn’t need to endure the fact that they walked to the train station, boarded, etc…the next chapter finds the character there and into the story. The story is a good one, I love page turners and Elaine has written one that demands that you read just one more page before you have to put it down.

I was taken in with Elaine Littau's story from the first chapter of The Eyes of a Stranger. Elaine's descriptions made me feel as if I was right there in the 1800's watching the story unfold.

Gertie Brenan is rejected by her family only to be sent to meet her soon-to-be husband for the first time. He too rejects her. Gertie comes to terms with her situation and realizes she now has choices and a sense of freedom she never experienced before. Gertie's journey is one of love, sacrifice, honor, and kindness. You will find yourself captivated traveling along with the girl who has The Eyes of a Stranger!

Amazing writing! :) Loved it, even though I was lobbying for the sherriff until the very end! It didn't end the way I thought it would which is always a good thing. :) Well worth it.
