The Button Legacy by Ginger Marcinkowski

The Button Legacy is the sequel to this author’s novel Run River Currents.  Where the first novel was dark, this novel is full of life and light.  I do recommend reading Run River Currents first because it’s background will provide information to understand the stories shared in The Button Legacy.  I enjoyed both books, but especially The Button Legacy. Both books are based on the author’s life.

Growing up, Emily Evans of Run, River Currents had always shared a special understanding with her grandfather, John Polk, even when she couldn’t fully see beyond the darkness of her father’s abuse. Yet John looked to the future in faith to what his God could do.

Years after her grandfather’s death, the unexpected delivery of the decorated tin, still brimming with odd-colored buttons, unlocks the joyous memories and lets Emily realize she has finally discovered the secret her grandfather promised lay within the stories of the worn button box.
Told through the eyes of a devout grandfather, The Button Legacy: Emily’s Inheritance laces together a godly heritage and the power of one man’s prayers, offering a lesson of how God’s grace can be seen even in the simplest thing-a button. This novel shares even more stories from The Button Legacy, a novella of Emily’s favorite stories.
