I'm a Christian, married with four kids and an increasing number of grandchildren. The Lord saved me in college and it's been a journey ever since. I love writing fiction infused with the truth of the gospel. To know what "brand" of believer I am, check out my church's statement of faith.

The Russells

An eighteen-century American colonial family

"Lynne Tagawa transports readers into the faith and hope, and sorrows and fears of 18th century colonial America. While other books feature the raw grit of frontier life, this book goes deeper and reveals the heart."

-- Douglas Bond, author of numerous books, including War in the Wasteland and Hostage Lands.

"The plot and characters are well thought out and quite intriguing. I think this is the first time I've ever read a book that so wonderfully combines history, romance, and solid biblical doctrine. I'm ready for a sequel!"

--A Reviewer

Book 2 of The Russells: The Heart of Courage

It's 1753 . . . and trouble comes to Russell's Ridge

The theology throughout was my favorite part. I had no idea so much good theology could be packed into an interesting and exciting story! My heart grew along with the characters’ hearts, and I was so thankful for their maturing in faith...even as they struggled as I do....Dear author, Please write more! Pretty please!
This book was truly written Soli Deo Gloria, and I enjoyed every moment of reading it. --a reader
