Read about the day a boy first falls in love with a girl in the Eagle Harbor short story, Love's Beginning.

As a ten-year-old boy, Elijah sees Gilbert Sinclair bully the other school children day in and day out. As far as Elijah figures, it's going to be a long school year if somebody doesn't show the rich kid a thing or two, so it might as well be him. If only his sister wasn't around to mess up his plans.

And why does he care so much what Victoria, the pretty girl with a house fancier than Gilbert's, thinks of their fight?

Love's Beginning is a 12 page short story. It can be read as a standalone or as an extension of Love's Every Whisper, which is Elijah and Victoria's full length novel.

About the Author

Naomi Rawlings is the author of seven historical Christian novels, including the Amazon bestselling Eagle Harbor Series. While she'd love to claim she spends her days huddled in front of her computer vigorously typing, in reality, she spends her time homeschooling, cleaning, picking up, and pretending like her house isn't in a constant state of chaos. She lives with her husband and three children in Michigan's rugged Upper Peninsula, along the southern shore of Lake Superior where they get 200 inches of snow every year, and where people still grow their own vegetables and cut down their own firewood--just like in the historical novels she writes.

In Love’s Beginning, Naomi Rawlings heralds the entry of two lovely little girls into the story. Rebekah enters in a swirling flurry of white pinafore, blue dress, and brown hair, while Victoria is all prettily dressed up in white lace and pink ruffles, with cheeks turning pink, the prettiest thing, with flounces and miles of creamy lace. This is where Love begins and has its start in Elijah’s heart. Victoria’s kindness in sharing her food and her delicate stammer make her appear all the more winsome in Eijah’s eyes. Love’s Every Whisper is first heard here, softly and silently, in Love’s Beginning, in the tender hearts of Elijah and Victoria. The look of love is sweet, as Elijah poignantly discovers at the very moment he falls in love with Victoria Donnelly. This is where it all starts – in a flurry of childhood love – in the age of innocence. You will hear Love’s Every Whisper ring out in Love’s Beginning. Miriam Jacob

Love's Beginning by Naomi Rawlings Eagle Harbor Series Short Story This is short story that introduces the reader to a ten-year-old Elijah Cummings and what his schooldays were like having the very rich Gilbert Sinclair and his group of bullies around. And also a glimpse of a young Rebekah, his sister, and her feisty attitude at such a young age. And mostly it's about how he first fell for Victoria Donnelly. Their story is in book two; Love's Every Whisper.

This is a look into some of the characters. Enjoyed reading the thoughts of Elijah and why Gilbert Sinclair was someone he would not like into adulthood!

Love's Beginning, written by Naomi Rawlings is a sweet short story about Elijah, Rebekah, Victoria and Gilbert from other books in the series. I loved seeing how they were as fitting as they grow up to be so similar and this just gives you a tiny taste of what is to come. I thought it was very fitting, but unfortunately just extremely short :( I was given a copy of this book by the author. All thoughts and comments are my own.

One scene setting up the premise for the series. Well done, just not much.
