Sam Houston’s Republic chronicles Texas history in a captivating blend of adventure, politics, Christian faith, romance, and even a splash of humor. The author illuminates the hearts and minds of her characters in a vivid detail that belies a history text. A highly recommended read!”

About the Author

Lynne Tagawa never found “social studies” very interesting in her school years at all.  But after the Lord Jesus Christ saved her she began to see that history was His Story and it took on a new fascination, to observe what He was doing in the changes of lives and nations.  Now married to her husband Geary and the mother of four sons, she has taught in Christian schools and at home. The Tagawas reside in Texas.
