This week I was reminded to promote other books I’ve written. If you go to Lorry Lutz on Google, nine of my eleven published books are displayed. It’s almost embarrassing to note that some sell for as little as 48cents! Of course as far as books go, they’ve been around for a long time, and face hundreds of thousands of other books which have been published since.
Three of my books are on Kindle — The Soweto Legacy, When God Says Go, and Daughters of Deliverance. I have to admit, I like them all– but then I am prejudiced.
The Soweto Legacy was published in the 80s, but it deals with subjects as current as today. Set in South Africa when apartheid reigned, it tells the story of a mixed-race couple (a no-no under apartheid) and how their two families handled the delicate situation. Race and ethnic hatred contrasted with love, forgiveness and God’s care as the story comes to a dramatic conclusion.
When God Says Go resembles Daughters of Deliverance, in that it is about a brave,persistent, godly woman who spends her life relieving the suffering of others. Mother Eliza George, a daughter of American slaves, serves the tribal people of Liberia, rescuing girls from early marriage to old men, educating them in schools she’s founded, and starting churches with pastors she’s trained. But that’s just the framework of this true story . Her marriage to Mr. George — really out of convenience so she could stay in Africa–is just one of the quaint stories that emerge out her rich and colorful life. At ninety-five she’s still traveling through the jungle, carried in a hammock by porters, straddling across a log fallen over a swollen river, to bring the message of God to one more village.
Katharine Bushnell’s story of courage, persistence and faith is told in Daughters of Deliverance. She spent most of her life exposing what we call trafficking today— in the streets of Denver and Chicago, the forests of northern Wisconsin– and later in the barracks of the British military in India.(see my recent posts for more)
Even old books can be enjoyed — and fortunately they are all on Amazon for your enjoyment.
