Fred's Destiny by James Harold Carlson

From the coal mines of western Pennsylvania to the cranberry bogs of central Wisconsin, Fred's Destiny intersects Potawatomi Indians, the Moravian Church, Socialism, and two World Wars. An immigrant to America from Sweden, Fred Anderson is jilted by the girl of his dreams only to discover God has someone else in mind to be his life partner-Edna Marie. You'll be amused, educated, and inspired as you read about their fascinating and unpredictable journey. At various times Fred is called a romantic, a folk hero, a lover of poetry, and a generous man with an open heart. He pursues two occupations: coal mining and farming, and he does both exceptionally well. His destiny ultimately comes into focus as his faith in God, his love of family, and a revolutionary technique for harvesting cranberries converge to have a significant impact in the world. Don't be surprised if you find your own destiny in the pages of this compelling novel.

About the Author

James Harold Carlson served for forty years as a Christian minister-a U.S. Navy Chaplain during the Vietnam Era and a pastor in California, Hawaii, Colorado, and Michigan. He is now pursuing a passion for writing historical fiction. This is his third novel, the first being From the Eyes of Jesus; the second, Edla's Destiny. He has traveled extensively throughout the world, earned a doctorate from a leading theological seminary, and addressed the critical issues of living with thousands of parishioners. He and his wife, Marilyn, have two sons, a daughter, and eleven grandchildren. They presently make their home in Kentucky. Dr. Carlson believes there is no greater joy than discovering the ways of God and cultivating the spiritual dimension of living in a relationship with Jesus Christ.
