Is this a Christian author?  I just bought two books by him because they looked interesting.  They are novels based in Victorian England and early twentieth century England.  I think I'm going to like them a lot.

The books are "Give Us This Day" and "To Serve Them All My Days".

Has anyone read either of these?

I haven't heard of or read any of his books...the names of the books make them sound of a Christian nature...hmmm may have to look him up and see what else he writes.

Never heard of him.  From what I quickly searched online, I didn't see anything saying specifically that he is.

When  entered his name  To Serve Them All My Days  was a TV mini series in the 80's

I wonder...do you suppose that mini-series is on video somewhere?  It would be fun to watch!

I read those books years ago and enjoyed them but I don't think they are considered Christian specifically. But if you like engrossing family sagas in a different era, you will probably enjoy them too.

Another title I remember by Delderfield  is 'GOD IS AN ENGLISHMAN"---also very good.

I found the mini series on both Netflix and Blockbuster online.
