Book 1 - The ROSE of Brays Bayou - The Runaway Scrape 1836 (God Bless Texas Women)
"I would like to make a very special toast for our Second Anniversary ball. The men of Texas deserved much of the credit, but more was due to the many women across Texas. Armed men facing a foe couldn't but be brave. But, my friends, the women, with their little children around them, without means of defense or power to resist, faced danger and death with unflinching courage.
God Bless the Women of Texas!"
--- General Thomas Jefferson Rusk
For this novel to be considered Creative Nonfiction, it was written to be factually accurate. My primary goal in writing in this genre is to communicate the truthful information, just like a seasoned journalist, but to shape it in such a way that it reads like fiction.
REMEMBER THE ALAMO! REMEMBER GOLIAD! COME AND TAKE IT!
Dilue Rose Harris told her story for the Eagle Lake Headlight in 1900. A copy of the manuscript was given to the author of this novel in an edited form, and her story is now brought forth and told through the perspective of the creative nonfiction genre.
Book 2 - ADVERSITY - Keeping the Faith (German Family Immigrates to Texas in 1845)
Galatians 2:20 - I am crucified with Christ: nevertheless I live; yet not I, but Christ liveth in me: and the life which I now live in the flesh I live by the FAITH of the Son of God, who loved me and gave himself for me.
This novel, although historical fiction, was based on a true story. In a sense, one might lean as far as to call it creative nonfiction. It follows the Strauss German family through the painful decision-making process to leave Germany and pull up roots from generations of farming on the River Hunte near Rastede and Oldenburg, Germany. They fought delays from unfavorable winds traveling through the North Sea, storms that took many lives onboard their vessel, the Johann Dethardt, contracting yellow fever and other terrible sicknesses, and Indian attacks.
Book 3 - FAITH - Seventy Times Seven (First Ordained Woman of the Cumberland Presbyterian Church)
Then came Peter to him, and said, Lord, how oft shall my brother sin against me, and I forgive him? Till seven times?
Jesus saith unto him, I say not unto thee, Until seven times: but, Until seventy times seven. (KJV Matthew 18: 21-22)
Reverend Mrs. Ada Caston Slaton Bonds is one of the most colorful ministers ever produced by the great Cumberland Presbyterian Church. Beyond a doubt, she overcame more difficulties and passed through more heartaches than any minister ever known to preach the 'Whosoever Will' gospel. Miss Ada, as all affectionately called her, possessed countless prodigies. By way of the corridors of her ministerial career, she helped shape the lives and mold the character of a great number of young ministers, who, today, rise up and call her 'blessed.'
God sent her His Divine calling to preach. She then learned to preach. She carved out a place for herself among the clergy that was unique, without comparison. With bottomless emotion, genuine poise, and true dignity, Miss Ada Caston Slaton Bonds became the First Lady of the Cloth in the Louisiana Presbytery and had the highest honor bestowed upon her, the title of Mother of All Presbyteries.
