It’s my pleasure to host award winning author, Mindy Starns Clark on this Scavenger Hunt. Mindy has numerous fiction and nonfiction books to her credit and you can be sure of a good read when you pick up one of Mindy’s books. Here’s more about her newest book, My Daughter’s Legacy, a thrilling tale of how two women longing to follow God’s leading, make the most of second chances and find true love at last.

 

Women of Unfailing Conviction

Virginia, 1864
Therese Jennings cannot abide the thought of owning slaves. When her widowed mother inherits a plantation, Therese flees to Civil War Richmond, where she works as a governess by day and tends to wounded soldiers at night. But when trouble befalls her family, can she reconcile her obligations with her beliefs? And will love—whether with an old beau or a handsome new suitor—ever fit in her broken world?

Virginia, present day
Nicole Talbot’s life is back on track after years of substance abuse. Home from college for the summer, she’s finally ready to share a shocking secret, one that raises new questions about a traumatic childhood experience. But when facts she uncovers cast doubt on her family’s legacy, she must risk all that she’s gained—her fresh start, her family’s trust, and her growing relationship with a new man—to unlock the secrets of the past.

Now it’s Mindy’s turn. Enjoy.

A Southern Belle by Mindy Starns Clark

Just because my latest book is a serious work of fiction doesn’t mean I can’t get a little silly now and then when sharing it with others. “Silly” is definitely the word for this video—though I’m hoping you’ll have as much fun watching it as I did making it!

The Story

A bit of background on the novel first…

  • My Daughter’s Legacy , co-written with Leslie Gould, is the third and final book in our Cousins of the Dove series.
  • The novel features two heroines living in two different eras—one in the Civil War south of 1864 and one in the modern day—and their stories intertwine in unique and important ways.

The Movie

  • The minute-and-a-half film below, which is making its debut here, presents a reenactment of a brief excerpt from the historical portion of the story.
  • Like I said, it’s pretty silly—and it doesn’t reflect the tone of the tale, which is far more dignified, I promise—but it is a lot of fun. The star of the movie is my dog, Belle, who plays the roles of both Therese and her mother.

Mother

Therese

  • As you watch, bear in mind that NO ANIMALS WERE HARMED IN THE MAKING OF THIS FILM! If you follow me on Facebook, where Belle is featured every Friday, you’ll know she’s a Therapy Dog and loves any activity—with or without costumes—that puts her at the center of attention. My daughter Emily was her “handler” throughout filming, and the only possible negative ramification from that process was that Belle may have earned a few too many dog treats for her good behavior. J

So, drum roll please, with all of the above in mind, I hope you enjoy Belle’s reenactment of a brief scene from the historical portion of My Daughter’s Legacy

To see more of Belle, including another upcoming reenactment from the book and an eventual “Making of” video, visit my blog or follow me on Facebook. Thanks for watching, and best wishes as you continue with the Scavenger Hunt!

Thanks, Mindy.

What a fun post! Hope you all enjoyed reading about Mindy’s new book, My Daughter’s Legacy, and watching Belle act out that scene. Don’t think I could have ever talked any of my dogs into wearing a hat!

      That’s something we sometimes forget to consider, Julie – what we allow in our head when we watch movies or read books. But I agree with you. Some things I don’t need in my head.

    I like to read Christian books because they are books that my Grandchildren can read!! I don’t like to read curse words (or hear then either) and don’t feel that explicit sex scene are necessary.

      I’m with you, Jan. My granddaughter read so many of the Christian fiction books I had here when she was just beginning to enjoy reading adult books and I didn’t have to worry about what she was picking up. She was reading other authors as well as some of my books. I don’t like reading curse words or hearing them on movies or in conversation either. I know language like that is common but that doesn’t mean we have to join the club, does it?

      Great reasons to enjoy Christian fiction, Tonya. Good stories without things you’d rather not feed into your brain. I like the word heartfelt to describe Christian books.

      Glad you think my book looked interesting, Sabrina, or you may be talking about Mindy’s. I’m sure you thought it looked interesting too. I think I’d like to give that swinging bridge a try just so I could see how Fran was feeling when she was wondering if she could get across it. The Frontier Nurse Midwives did have to be very brave at times to ride up the mountain trails and cross flooded streams and rivers on their horses.
