Catherine's Pursuit by Lena Nelson Dooley

Lena Nelson Dooley wraps up her "Mckenna's Daughters Series" with Catherine's Pursuit, which chronicles Catherine's discovery that she is, in fact, a triplet separated at birth! I know it sounds a bit preposterous, but Lena Nelson Dooley makes is not only plausible, but warmly believable, because that's what Ms. Dooley does.

Catherine's Pursuit spans not only the distance from San Francisco to Oregon City to Seattle, Washington, but also the wingspan of the heart of a father's love for his little girls that risked the pain of separation in order to give them a chance to live a better life than he could provide in the dusty, early days of the California gold rush.

Lena Nelson Dooley invites you on a voyage of discovery along with her characters, and does it in a lovely, gentle, life-affirming way that is a refreshing break from much of the entertainment available.
So, grab a ticket and climb on board!

Lena Nelson Dooley


Award-winning author, Lena Nelson Dooley, has more than 675,000 books in print. She is a member of American Christian Fiction Writers and president of the local chapter, DFW Ready Writers. She’s also a member of Christian Authors Network, CROWN Fiction Marketing, and Gateway Church in Southlake, Texas.

Lena loves James, her children, grandchildren, and great grandson. She loves chocolate, cherries, chocolate-covered cherries, and spending time with friends. Travel is always on her horizon. Cruising, Galveston, the Ozark Mountains of Arkansas, Mexico. One day it will be Hawaii and Australia, but probably not the same year. Helping other authors become published really floats her boat, with fifteen signing their first book contract after her mentoring. Three of her books have been awarded the Carol Award silver pins from American Christian Fiction Writers and she has received the ACFW Mentor of the Year award at their national conference. The high point of her day is receiving feedback from her readers, especially people whose lives have been changed by her books. And she loves chocolate, especially dark chocolate.


When Angus McKenna was forced to give two of his daughters to families in the wagon train, he promised he'd never try to contact them. Catherine made no such pledge. But when she sets out to find her sisters, she doesn't go alone. Angus sends Collin with her. Will they discover the two women---and love?

Hi Dana!
Thank you so much for stopping by the "Remnants"...
I really enjoyed Catherine's Pursuit--I love a good historical escape that's refreshing and entertaining!

Also referenced was the famous "prayer of Jabez"--always a good reminder of God's love. :)

Bless you!
