Making Waves by Lorna Seilstad

The time period that this book is set in has always interested me and this book just helped to increase that interest. The beautiful central character of Marguerite is full of life and you just want to root for her as she finds her own way and her own life that is not dictated by her family. Loved it!


Set in 1895, Making Waves, by debut author Lorna Seilstad is the first book in the Lake Manawa Summers series.

When spunky Marguerite Westing discovers that her family will summer at Lake Manawa in 1895, she couldn't be more thrilled. It is the perfect way to escape her agonizingly boring suitor, Roger Gordon. It's also where she stumbles upon two new loves: sailing, and sailing instructor Trip Andrews.

But this summer of fun turns to turmoil as her father's gambling problems threaten to ruin the family forever. Will free-spirited Marguerite marry Roger to save her father's name and fortune? Or will she follow her heart--even if it means abandoning the family she loves?

Author Lorna Seilstad's fresh and entertaining voice will whisk readers away to a breezy lakeside summer holiday in Making Waves, the first book of the Lake Manawa Summers series.


Lorna Seilstad is a history buff, antique collector, and freelance graphic designer. A former high school English and journalism teacher, she has won several online writing awards and is a member of American Christian Fiction Writers. She lives in and draws her setting from Iowa. This is her first novel.
