A touching and moving story of life awaits readers as author Amos Walker beautifully knits this fictional novel that would surely affect every sentimental heart. Amen in the Morning captivates the tender hearts of both young and old as the tale takes them on an emotive ride through the drama that runs in the veins of the strong-willed character, Elizabeth Ann McCraig.
Elizabeth Ann McCraig and her father, Jim, begin that spring day like any other on their small Montana ranch. Before night falls, Ann would lose her home and her father and begin a journey that would forever change her life. Overcoming her fears and gaining confidence in her ability to survive, Ann never loses faith. Even after the most devastating events, Ann prays for God to keep her safe all night long. As days, weeks, and months pass, Ann grows into a young woman who begins to love the majestic beauty of the wilderness she must survive. Relying on her wits and her faith, she does far more than survive. Where will life lead her?
Amen in the Morning follows the story of Ann, who will soon realize that there’s more to her than what meets the eye, that her spirit and faith will keep her afloat despite the challenges, and that what matters most is not the destination but the journey that led her there.

About the Author
Amos Walker grew up in small town USA during the 50s and 60s. He is the eighth child in a very poor family of ten children. By the time Amos was born, followed quickly by his two younger brothers, his parents were pretty much worn out with raising children. So Amos and his younger brothers were pretty much left to fend for themselves. There never seemed to be enough food to go around so the three boys learned early to hunt wild game and rob the neighbors’ fruit trees in order to eat. He worked hard all his life starting at the age of eleven. He was successful in his own business for several years and suffered many hardships throughout, but he never lost the joy of the little things in life. For years, he has been interested in writing and this last year finally seen his work in print. He writes for the sheer of enjoyment and feels the need to get his stories “out there.”
