Sun, summer, and a scrumptious sailing instructor. What more could a girl want?
When spunky Marguerite Westing discovers that her family will spend the summer of 1895 at Lake Manawa, Iowa, she couldn't be more thrilled. It's the perfect way to escape her agonizingly boring suitor, Roger Gordon. It's also where she stumbles upon two new loves: sailing, and sailing instructor Trip Andrews.
But this summer of fun turns to turmoil as her father's secrets threaten to ruin the family forever. Will free-spirited Marguerite marry Roger to save her father's name and fortune? Or will she follow her heart--even if it means hurting the family she loves?
Full of sharp wit and blossoming romance, Making Waves will whisk you away to a breezy lakeside summer holiday.

About The Author:
A history buff, antique collector, and freelance graphic designer, Lorna Seilstad is the author of Making Waves and draws her setting from her home state of Iowa. A former high school English and journalism teacher, she has won several online writing awards and is a member of American Christian Fiction Writers.
Once again I am reminded why I love the genre of Christian Historical Fiction! What a wonderful debut release from a promising author. Making Waves had all the elements of a wonderful read: great characters, well-developed story-lines, humor, mystery, romance and faith! You will discover that it does not matter what others think about what you do with your life, it only matters what God thinks! You will also be reminded of the consequences that lying brings. I look forward to seeing how the characters and storylines develop in the next book of the series, set to release in the summer 2011.
I highly recommend this book and give it a thumbs up!
