As he lies dying, Constances father asks her to seek out a troubled friend of his from the war and tell him about Gods love. Although she would rather stay with those she has known all her life, Constance obeys her fathers wishes. She leaves her home in the mountains of Arkansas on a quest to find Jim Mitchell, reportedly living in Iowa. Constance soon discovers that locating Jim will not be as easy as she hoped, especially if she wants to avoid raising suspicions among the townsfolk of Browning City. And for reasons that escape her, the local blacksmith, Hans Van de Keift, seems to take her on as his special concern, shadowing her every step. Will Constance find Jim, or will her quest lead her instead to a destiny prepared by her heavenly Father, one that she would never have envisioned on her own.

A beautiful prairie romance Apr 26, 2007
After leaving her Arkansas home to fulfill the promise she made before her father's death, Constance Miller steps from the stage in Browning City, Iowa, and falls into the arms of the handsome town blacksmith, Hans Van de Keift. Her mission is difficult enough: She must find a war friend of her father's, convince the man to return a stolen shipment of gold to the Yankees, then encourage him to turn to the Lord. But with Hans gently blocking her search attempts in order to keep her safe from the mishaps that seem to follow her, Constance's secret quest begins to weigh on her heart.
Will she be able to find her father's friend and rid herself of this burden? Once she has, will she be able to leave these kind people and this place of warm breezes and flowering hills? Could these stirrings in her heart mean that God has another reason for bringing her here?
With her rich scenic descriptions and her smoothly flowing narrative, author Lena Nelson Dooley pens a sweet romance that goes down like a glass of lemonade on a warm summer day. Though her heroine Constance is a little too accident-prone, and Hans has a need to carry Constance more than seems necessary, A Daughter's Quest provides a delightful getaway, one both mothers and daughters are sure to enjoy.

A FAITHFUL DAUGHTER'S PROMISE TO HER FATHER Mar 6, 2007
When an author has been married to the love of her life for over four decades, she's earned the right to pen inspirational romance!
Lena Nelson Dooley dedicates all of her novels to her husband, James. On the dedication page of A Daughter's Quest, she writes to her husband, "You are always there for me. You love me, cherish me, protect me, and make me laugh. These last forty-two years have been an amazing ride. I never want to get off." (Aaawww...sweet!)
In Dooley's latest novel, A Daughter's Quest, Constance has been asked by her dying father to travel to Iowa to find his long-lost war comrade Jim. He worries that Jim doesn't know God, and he can't die in peace until he knows he tried to reach him.
Constance promises to follow her father's wishes, yet along the way, God has some intriguing plans for her, involving a handsome stranger with eyes of blue.
