Celebrate Lit Promo Blast: Tatiana by Madeline Brock


Tatiana Bergman views life through a different lens than most. She says and does what she likes without regard for hurt feelings on the way. Living in the 1840s in rural Pennsylvania, her passionate, impulsive behavior confounds her sisters and appalls her peers.

Life only gets more complicated when Tatiana befriends Jonny Creek, a mischievous young man whose Native American blood puts him on the fringes of society. Jonny is trouble; Tatiana is intrigued. Together they spell out disaster. From being chased by wolves, to bashing around fancy gatherings, the unlikely pair get into one scrape after another.

When tragedy strikes the Bergman family, Tatiana is compelled to leave the security of her childhood home to live in the bustling city of Philadelphia. There, she is forced into adulthood as she deals with a mysterious young coworker and an unsavory employer.

Tatiana struggles to subdue her wild spirit and keep her heart pure while making the right choices and wrestling with her own woman she finds herself in a battle of her will between two young men and the God she serves.

I really enjoy books that take us back in time and this book, Tatiana by Madeline Brock, takes us back to the 1830's. 

Tatiana is being raised by her Dad after her mom dies. She is the youngest of 3 sisters. The family attends church weekly, she meets a young lad, Jonny, Jonny and Tatiana become fast friends. She also becomes friends with the Pastors son, Robert. Tatiana has a lot going on her life and is rebellious as a young girl. She gives her life to Christ and begins to seek forgiveness for her sins and tries to not be so rebellious. She has many struggles throughout her teen years, but as she nears 18, she is becoming less rebellious and more mature. She really has a grown liking for both Jonny and Robert? Who will she choose? Will one of them become a life long mate?? 

I really enjoyed reading this book. Tatiana is much like me: Bold and Spunky! The author really has a GREAT book here and I am looking forward to reading more in this series as this is the 1st book in the Upward Chronicles series. FANTASTIC book!

Madeline Brock's love of people, history, the Lord, and good storytelling flows over into her writing. She was born and raised in Northwest Ohio and came from a homeschooling family of seven. Madeline has loved reading and writing from a very young age.

In childhood, a favorite activity was taking family road trips across the country. Several unique part-time jobs filled her teen years. Among these were: music teacher, nanny, and a historic museum costumed guide. A chocolate factory and a produce stand were also memorable work experiences.

After graduation, Madeline spent two years on a Navajo Reservation in New Mexico. Her primary activity was teaching at a private school. Now California's beautiful Central Valley is her home. She resides with four cats, her carpenter husband, and their infant daughter.

Two of Madeline's favorite books are Little Women and Anne of Green Gables. She loves the timeless way the authors relate and portray their characters. Madeline strives to write with the nostalgia and emotion of her favorite authors.
