Soul of a Cougar: Summer with Me Ha Toc, Book 5, WOLVES OF WHITEWATER FALLS

Written & Illustrated by Lisa Loucks Christenson

Cover Design and Illustration: Lisa Loucks Christenson


Annie has sworn off dating, at least for now, and returns to Whitewater Falls for another season documenting the lives with the river eagles.

Word travels fast about sightings and reports of a cougar prowling the woods and in the area surrounding Annie's eagle study area. This news comes on the heels of the Reverend asking Annie to take on an assistant, a young man who goes by the name of Othaniel, that's coming to town to meet his birth mother.

Hunters in search of a trophy mount and bragging rights to the capture of the legendary ghost cat are quick to branch out across the land to find the cougar responsible for tearing up and killing the farmers' livestock. 

With wedding to plan for her friends, a new assistant, and trying to find a way to protect a cougar--everyone wants to destroy, Annie isn't sure what God's plans will be for her unforeseen future.

With a town upside down, alliances broken, and a bride who wants to run from the alter, Annie thought she'd seen it all--but that's before the cougar makes his appearance on the wedding day, giving the bride and groom--and the entire town the most unexpected sleigh ride of their lives.

Haley's Secret by L. L. Christenson

Middle Grade Christian Fiction; Ages 8 and up

Format: Hardcover

Release: Spring 2018

Publisher: Cross Creek Books™ imprint of Loucks Studios, Inc.

 

After losing her parents, nine-year-old Haley is sent to live with her paternal grandmother in Wisconsin. Haley's heart is broken, and even her grandmother can't take away the pain, until she takes Haley on a hike to the caves, a place her mother took her when her own father died.

When Haley follows a blind salamander into its tunnel, she gets lost. Haley doesn’t know what to do, so she waits, scared and shivering. Then, she does something she hasn’t done since her parents died. Haley prays for help. 

Haley's grandmother summons a rescue team to help find Haley, but an unexpected storm hits the back roads to her farm, causing a delay.

While she waits, Haley meets a cave researcher who goes by the name Holo and is as old as the stalactites. Holo teaches Haley about the uniqueness of each cave and how they all work together and connect to one larger system for a greater purpose.

Can this Holo, probably the oldest person Haley's ever met, help her understand how her untamed emotions can run wild and deep, like uncharted, twisting, black tunnels that no man can reach? 

In the limited time they have together, can Holo share his greatest gift with Haley and walk her through the unexplored territory inside herself, through the caverns of her broken heart, where her deepest pain is blocking those who love her and are trying to help her?

Can Holo teach Haley how to feel renewed and live pain free by shedding her tears into the underground river––the one that flows into the light?

In Search of Spirit Wolf

In Search of Spirit Wolf

In Search of Spirit Wolf, Book 3, Episode 1, WOLVES OF WHITEWATER FALLS

Illustrated Version | Ebook Episode

Written and Illustrated by Lisa Loucks Christenson

EPISODE ONE COVER BLURB:

Annie’s plans to move her and her daughter to Alaska are halted when vandals smash her truck windows, flatten her tires and steal her wolf statue. Instead, Annie decides to return to her eagle project, but trouble has arrived in Whitewater Falls too and it has carved its name--using her initials. Can god use a federal agent to unearth Annie’s new beginning?

Federal agent Galen North has arrived in Whitewater Falls to investigate a case of missing owls and he’s quick to point his finger at Annie, the nature photographer.

White Wolf meets someone from her past who changes both of their futures.

If a part of your soul were stolen, would you know where to look? In this story, Annie sets off to search for Spirit Wolf, her only true, silent friend––ever cemented to her soul. Annie soon discovers things that don't change, or in her case––a stationary wolf statue, can never truly be free…but if she’ll open her heart, god can use her situation, her brokenness and pain for connecting unreachable hearts—that have lost their way, and He can use her scars to open those who condemn and accuse her, and heal their wounds so they can love again, too—maybe even her.
