The book started out interesting but then it got way too violent with awful detailed descriptions of torture. The story became disjointed and just not something I enjoyed. I will try another of his books but can not recommend this one
I enjoyed this book a lot even though it was quite sad. Family tragedy brought the characters to their knees. Very well written and I was engrossed from the beginning. The reader walks with this family through tragedy, heartbreak and redemption. A lesson on how to deal with life's struggles
I really enjoyed this book. Strong characters living in difficult circumstances. The main character is a woman I could really identify with in spite of overwhelming challenges. I enjoyed learning more about living on a station in Queensland Australia and the joys and difficulties the settlers faced. I have finished the 3 book series and highly recommend it to anyone enjoying real life stories with a strong Christian message.
I absolutely loved this book. It is a wonderful story and very well written. The characters are "real" and there is lots of excitement, romance, history all wrapped in a wonderful Christian message. I am sharing this book with friends who are also enjoying it very much and we have already ordered the rest of the books in the series. I plan to read everything I can get my hands on written by Golden Keyes Parsons
This is an older mystery series. I was uncertain about it at first but really enjoyed it. Good story line and characters. The author did a real good job and I would recommend this to all who enjoy mysteries. Twists, turns and surprises. I am currently reading the 2nd of 7 in this series. Not sure if there are more!
I just loved this book. Wonderful story of a small southern town. Very character driven The plot concerns a wonderful old mansion converted to a bed and breakfast. The story takes you back to the history of the house during the civil war and the current life of the house as a restored bed and breakfast. Good history and very appealing characters with a little mystery and romance thrown in.
This series begins with the "The Captain's Bride" and is just great. It is a family saga about emigrants who come to America from Norway. They become quite successful starting a sailing ship building empire. The characters are compelling and the story is exciting. Good character and story development. This is my first experience with this author and I will definitely look for more of her books. All three books were really good and I highly recommend them to anyone enjoying Historical Christian fiction.
Enjoyed the book very much great story and good variety of characters. History and insight into the times. It did seem as though it was the first book in a series but as far as I can tell it is not. An abrupt and not so satisfying ending
I really enjoyed this book. After reading Millennium's Eve I was anxious to hear the rest of the story. Ed Stewart does a great job and I am anxious to read his 3rd book in this trilogy. He does a great job with character development. There is a little romance, mystery and suspense. You also follow the characters faith journey.
This is a fascinating book. Lots of twists and turns, interesting and in some ways unusual character a real winner as is always the case with Robert Whitlow. He never disappoints I would highly recommend this book.
This book is one to use as an ongoing resource. It has been very helpful and revealing about what prayer is and how it impacts our daily lives. Highly recommend it to anyone looking for a closer walk with God
For anyone who enjoys history and is interested in the early church in America, this is for you. It follows the great early evangelists such as Jonathan Edwards etc. These evangelists traveled and held revivals all over the east coast. Many, many people were brought to faith. There are stories that are based on fact but the characters are fictional. it provides a picture of how people fell away from the faith of the pilgrims and early settlers. Consequently society went into decline. I found it to be a picture comparable to what is going on in our country today. The whole series is well written and thoroughly enjoyable. I learned a lot and really love these books.
I enjoyed this book very much. The characters are very interesting and the historical facts are fascinating. There is intrigue, mystery and lots of excitement. I have read the 2nd in the series and am looking forward to the 3rd. Jack Cavanaugh is an excellent writer.
