The novels follow the history of the fictional Williams family through various branches of the family tree, sometimes veering off to another surname altogether. But that family connects in some way! A family lineage in the front of each book, keeps you up on the family connections.

Each book is a stand-alone story, but is a part of Belinda Jo's series called: A Tale That is Told.

Belinda Jo Adams has been writing for more than 30 years. She actually started writing while in junior high school, but at age 40 she began seriously writing for publication. Her one desire is for her writings to glorify God and encourage people as they read her books, poems, devotions and articles. Her favorite type of writing is to take events from history and use that in a story or devotion.

Her books are available on as paperback and for Kindle. You can also get them from most bookstores by requesting them. They are still Print on Demand. The only one that is not available as paperback online is The Treasure of North Pole Alaska. It is available for Kindle.

During the summer of 2016 she revised the first four novels, made new covers and set them up on Create Space with Amazon. They are the SAME stories as they were with a few minor corrections. She was also able to lower the price of them, hoping more people will purchase them, both to read and maybe share with friends!

The Inheritance

The Oregon Trail (a 2,000 mile trek) was formed out of necessity to get people from the east coast to the west coast. Most of these pioneers settled in California, Oregon and Utah. It is said that between 300,000 and 400,000 pioneers used the Oregon Trail and its various three branches to go to these destinations, all hoping for a better way of life. The Inheritance is based on fact, but the people written about are fiction. Read on as you travel The Oregon Trail with three brothers and learn what secret inheritance they carried.

MY PRECIOUS JEWEL: is set in the early 1900's. Eleven-year-old Emerald Cooper loves Aaron Davis, who is ten years her senior and only sees her as a close friend of the family. At the turn of the 20th century, a time when women could not enter into a man’s world, she could not let him know how she felt before he left on a venture. While Aaron is away helping in the building of the Panama Canal, a newcomer, Reuben Baker, comes to town. As the years go by, Reuben falls in love with Emerald and sets her heart in turmoil as she tries to decide whether to wait for a chance to declare her love for Aaron or accept a love that is being offered her right now. THE LURE OF ALASKA: In the early 1900s, Cason Williams travels from Georgia to Alaska in search for an answer to why his friend died. Was it really an accident as the report said or was murder the real cause of death? And where is the gold Shane found?

While waiting for Cason to return, Anna, Shane’s Fiancée back home in Georgia, is worried she will be forced into a marriage of convenience to help her mother keep their home.
