Elaine manages to draw the reader into the world of prejudice and disappointments that haunt our hero, Elk. We hear the taunting voices of disdain and torment, just as he does, and rejoice when he overcomes his demons with the help of a deepening faith.
This story has varied subplots that keep the reader intrigued and focused throughout the book. As we meet each new character, it becomes increasingly more difficult to predict the final outcome, but all is resolved in the end I can't wait to read that one!

It was simply worded and well described. The characters caught my attention.
It delt with a lot of interesting subjects : marriage, corruption etc However, there are some things that I didnt really appreciat. The first and second chapters were not really connected to the rest of the novel, imo. It seemed that it was just a way to introduce Elk and how he met Miranda.

I thought the novel will be about them at first. The change of This novel was lovely to read. I just wish the 2 first chapters were written differently.
He seemed to be whining too much and get things done too little. Her father proved to be a bad father after all when he abandoned his daughter though we were led to think he was a good father at first. Elk and his twin seemed to be TOO identical. In looks and in personalities.
This was a disappointment. I wish they were different.
Finances caused Elks Lodge suspension
They seemed to be TOO nice to be true too. At the end I got used to them crying so much. The novel seems to have two categories of characters : too nice and too evil.

There are way too much coincidence. It made the novel seem glued together at some point. Like Sarah who tells her same story two or three times in the novel.

Elaine Littau lives in a town I visit several times a month. Elk's Resolve was for sale at a gas station I stop at each time before leaving town, and the book had interested me for a long time. I finally picked up the book a week ago Sunday, and could not put it down. I finished the book in a week, which for those that know me, know that is fast for me. Earlier this month, the city and. Bank, which owned the property, claiming ownership of the early s Craftsman-style house. In its intergovernmental agreement with Metro, the city agreed to indemnify Metro against any claims about the ownership of the house.
The Elks have not sued the city, but the agreement suggested the city believed it would be named in the suit after buying the land. On Tuesday, the council unanimously approved giving the house, about 11,square feet of land and an access easement to the Elks. Within six months, the city will give the house and land to the Elks. The Elks' lawyer, former Washington County Counsel. Once the parcel is created and deeded, the Elks will dismiss the suit, Junkin said.
The council did not discuss the action before voting Tuesday night. But now, with their Sunday alcohol supply cut off, Vivian began to think more broadly. Why not make the Jolly Corks into a formal club, with dues that could be used to buy kegs for Sunday parties? Those who sang badly were fined, as were those who sang well. By the end of the evening, the coffers overflowed. The first meeting was such a success that the next week many Corks brought along friends, filling the boarding house with such a din that the landlady banned any future parties.
The following week the Corks met in a room over a saloon, but with about 20 members, they had already begun to see the need for a more permanent arrangement. Just before Christmas one of the Corks died, and as his theater colleagues gathered in mourning to contemplate the blunt brutality of life, they talked about using the group to help one another in times of hardship. With that, they became part of an increasingly popular phenomenon.
By an estimated 40 percent of adult American men would belong to fraternal organizations. Ritualistic societies gave them a way not only to socialize with their bosses and colleagues outside the stressful work environment but also to reframe their religious and social ideas in a more manly atmosphere. Moreover, even if theater professionals like Vivian were not traditionally so constricted by prevailing notions of masculinity, they were still drawn by ritual.

Vivian suggested naming the new order the Buffaloes, but the other Corks preferred something original and American. Vivian still favored Buffaloes, but he was outvoted. The Jolly Corks had had no rituals aside from boyish pranks, but for the Elks Vivian pinched wholesale from the Buffaloes, right down to the rank titles. Once formally adopted in May, the new rituals involved regalia, Grand Exalted Rulers, long call-and-response prayers, and passwords.
