Nebraska Inspirational Fiction

Inspirational fiction set in Nebraska

Hello from Nebraska. For most of my life (other than college), I have called Nebraska home.  And I truly love my home state. In fact, I have written my own books about traveling around Nebraska and Lincoln. Naturally I need inspiration sometimes. What better place to look than Christian fiction? 

Here is a list of many books set in Nebraska. I have read most of the titles. With the ones that I have not quite gotten to yet, I feel like I can vouch for the authors confidently enough to still recommend them. I hope you enjoy your fictional trip to my state.
