About the Author
As a Communication graduate from the University of Utah, Lindsay Ferguson worked as a PR and marketing writer for a computer software company for several years before resigning to focus on raising her family. As a contributor to Deseret Digital Media, she has had lifestyle articles published by ksl.com, Deseret News, and FamilyShare.com. She lives in a suburb of Salt Lake City with her husband and four children. By the Stars is her first novel.
Lindsay B. Ferguson’s novel By the Stars is a unique and delightful read based on the life of Cal. It is an inspiring WWII romance novel. The story follows Cal through his life as he grows up, learns hard work from the farm and from serving an LDS mission. It also shows a beautiful romance with a grade-school acquaintance, Kate. As Cal goes off to fight in the war he must rely on God to survive. Cal and Kate write letters while he as away at war, as it pulls them apart and pushes them together, causing their love to develop and blossom into something glorious and wonderful. I love how it goes through Cal’s life so readers can become attached and see how Cal grows and changes and how his friendship with Kate turns into a timeless love. Hard work, faith, hope, and love are strong themes that penetrate this inspiring story. I would recommend this novel to readers that enjoy WWII novels, as well as stories based off of real-life.
