Lincoln James Legacy: War Child is the long awaited sequel to Olivia's Hope released in 2018. War Child is not so much about war itself, in fact, there is very little actual war within the pages, but it is about surviving after the war. Even years and decades later. It's about good soldiers and innocent civilians, especially children recovering from the unseen wounds and deep scars left behind after witnessing the brutality of war. The insults of your mind and heart, seen and experienced, especially from the perspective of an innocent little girl.
It’s about wolves and sheep and the quiet, unassuming sheepdogs of the world that try to keep the wolves at bay.
It's about Love and Joy and the kind of Friendship that we all dream about and desperately desire. It's about loss and grief that no one is immune to. Some of us bear more of that burden than others. It’s about tradition and honoring those that have gone before you. It's about being completely content in your misery. Then, Life comes along and drags you kicking and screaming back into the sunshine. When the wonderful light first hits your eyes, you blink a couple of times because you aren't used to it. Then you smile and suddenly wonder, "Why did I wait so long?"
Murder, Romance, Weddings and War
Seth and Jenny ride the roller coaster of uncertainty and joy between having the twins, discovering their babies were already named and finally, finding out who the real mothers are?
Long ago, on a snatch and grab mission, Link and his elite Dagger unit stumbled across a starving, ragged little girl. Now, years later and living in America, Celia still can't shake the nightmares of the war. Empty and broken inside, she trusts no one.
Then, along comes Jesse, Link’s son. He is different from anyone Celia has ever met. Infuriating yet... interesting. Does she know that Jesse is the son of the man that saved her? When Jesse gets arrested for murder, can she ever trust him?

**About the Author**
“Life, liberty and the Pursuit of adventure” is his lifetime motto. Kevin Karella was born on the frontiers of Alaska into a family of ten siblings, living a near subsistence lifestyle. Being raised with strong faith and Christian values by his father, a World War 2 Marine and pilot, gave Kevin a passion for life, flying and adventure. Kevin Started out his career as a pilot flying the Alaskan backcountry, he later joined the Army and flew combat and “Dust-off” helicopters all over the world.
He is happily married to Dawn Marie and between them they have four grown children and five grandchildren spanning the globe from Alaska to New Zealand.
His writing career began recently when he awoke with a movie playing in his head. He decided to write some of it down on his cell phone as it was very intriguing. After nearly 20,000 words written with his thumbs, he realized he needed to move the story to his computer. Twelve days later, he had accidently completed a 300 page manuscript and titled it Olivia’s Hope. Even though he never aspired to be a writer, those close to Kevin will tell you he has spent a lifetime of relationships and adventures, in preparation for it.
He is sadly a member of Gold Star Fathers.
Now, As a full time Airline Pilot, he travels extensively, writing from many unusual locations, finding inspiration everywhere and spending his free time between Alaska and Texas.
