STORY-LINE ELOF’S MISSION:
In Elof’s Mission, we are back in Morgan’s Crossing. Author Linda Hubalek’s story begins at the cemetery as Elof Lundahl’s placing an iron cross on Nolan’s father-in-laws grave. If you have followed the Grooms With Honor Series, you will remember Nolan from Nolan’s Vow. If not, Hubalek gives enough background in her stories to bring you up to speed. Hearing a wagon coming, he finds Swedish immigrant Linnea Meyer, her son Jamie, and Linnea’s husband’s body. Although the landlord came with Linnea to the cemetery, far from kind, he insist she vacate her home before nightfall.
Linnea a mail order bride of eight days, finds herself with a dead husband, a five-year old stepson, and no place to go. Elof, compassionate and with a good heart, offers to help her and Jamie. Elof, recently retired from the Army, is ready to settle down with a wife and family. What he didn’t count on was Linnea and Jamie. Traveling with Linnea and Jamie opens Elof to a new world of love, romance, and fatherhood.
