A Fictionalized Biography of Katherine (Kroontje) Vastenhout
Written by Carol Brands
Book 3: Years Eighteen through Twenty: The Romance Years
When Katherine and her family moved from their tiny home near Rock Rapids, Iowa, to a new home near Magnolia, Minnesota, this is how Katherine felt her first Sunday in a new church.
She felt lost, totally bereft of friends and familiarity. What had she and her family done? They had left everything near and dear behind to start completely over!
Would she ever be able to fit in?
To find friends?
To feel like she belonged . . .?
In an area surrounded by the big woods of Wisconsin, the Mississipi and Missouri Rivers, Walnut Grove and Plum Creek, and the prairies of south Dakota, a new generation of faith, settled in the days of the first automobile, electricity, and gas furnaces (that would explode). Carol Brands has depicted the true story of a country girl, Katherine, in a setting of world wars, by a very accurate account, which will likely cause thousands to visit places such as Rock Rapids in Iowa and Leota and Magnolia in Minnesota in years to come in between exploring De Smet in South Dakota and Walnut Grove in Minnesota.
Living history, so that children (and their parents too) understand times past in order to be a blessing in times present, for the glory of God!
