In 1926, while living in Russia, ten-year-old Lisenka and her family struggled to survive under Communist rule. When Commandant Chukov closed their Christian school, took their Bible, and began to stalk them for their Christian faith, they knew they must flee. Follow Lisenka and her family on their harrowing journey by oxen cart, train and ship to America. Even within sight of America, their dream was threatened. Throughout the book, Lisenka tried to believe the truth of God's promise, "All things work together for good to them that love God." This fictional story of a young girl's journey to religious freedom in the United States is based on actual events. My Story I grew up in a small Ohio town, attended a small Lutheran grade school and have a small-town attitude. After college and four children, I began to write, including the original version of this book. In 1995, my husband Tom and I started a group travel business, Tom's Christian Tours (TCT). My small-town attitude entered the jet-set age. TCT took me to all corners of the USA and to 75 different countries. Now in retirement, writing is again calling to me. Endorsements "Reading Red carried me back more than 70 years to the stories that my mom told me. The book made me cry at the memories of her hardships and joys." - Gloria Pipping, daughter of German-Russian immigrant, Lydia Zangl "It's easy to recommend Red to kids because my students loved the riveting adventure. More importantly, however, kids should read it to learn, along with Lisenka, the value of religious freedom and the faithful fulfillment of God's promises." - Kris Walta, fifth grade teacher, Faith Lutheran School, Fond du Lac, WI
