Another one from the fiction-based-on-fact department, this one in the more historical vein. . . .
Charlotte Reynolds. He Called Himself a Barnstormer. 334p., $15.99, Deep River Books.
He Called Himself a Barnstormer is a fictionalized story about a real man, James Scott, who seemed to have the hand of God on his young life. As a direct descendant, author Charlotte J. Reynolds shares the miraculous story of how James was the lone survivor of a deadly shipwreck in 1822. After being marooned on an island for two years, he was finally rescued and eventually made his way to Indiana in the mid-1800s.
Young James Scott couldn’t shake these nagging questions:
Why was I saved?
What is my purpose?
This is the story of the surprising way the Lord answered those questions.
