About The Button Legacy: Emily’s Inheritance Ginger Marcinkowski’s first novel, Run, River Currents featured Emily Evans, who as a girl shared a special understanding with her grandfather, John Polk. Despite the scars of her father’s abuse John taught her to look to the future in faith, promising Emily God’s grace can be seen even in the simplest thing—a button. Years after her grandfather John’s death, the unexpected delivery of a decorated tin, still brimming with odd-colored buttons is delivered to Emily. The reappearance of the family buttons unlocks joyous memories and guides Emily to realize a secret her grandfather promised lay within the stories of that worn button box; the healing power of prayer. In The Button Legacy: Emily’s Inheritance each button connects one generation to the next as their interrelated stories unfold across the timeless landscape of their spiritual journey.

Tag Line Based on the true story of one family’s spiritual saga revealed through buttons that have been secreted away in an antique box, and that ultimately hold the key to each generation’s salvation.

Endorsements Long version: “The Bible instructs us to leave a Godly inheritance to our children, one worthy of future generations. The Button Legacy: Emily’s Inheritance does just that, with its rich and imaginative button stories of the Polk family’s faithful walk with God. From the moment the button box appears as a wedding gift for John and Ellen Polk until the reader sees its unexpected delivery to John’s granddaughter, Emily, each button tale enthralls the reader with tender stories that bear witness to God’s endless grace. I highly recommend reading not only this book but the one preceding it, Run, River Currents, to get a full picture of how God can heal the worst wounds and restore joy to broken lives.” “These commandments that I give you today are to be on your hearts. Impress them on your children. Talk about them when you sit at home and when you walk along the road, when you lie down and when you get up.” Deuteronomy 6:6–7 NIV T.C. Avey Author of The Precipice: When Everything We Know Ends
