Great historical fiction with great characters and plot. You won’t be disappointed. I plan on reading the next in the series
It’s been a while since I’ve read this. I was very excited about The House of Winslow series and started to buy all of them, but there are so many. I particular like books 1, 3, and 7.
This is the first book I’ve read by Gilbert Morris. It certainly reads differently than my usual female-author fare, and I enjoyed the change of pace. There’s a bit more blood and violence than I’d like, but such was the era. Morris gives the characters in this novel have plenty of time to develop. Each person seems realistic: flawed but not static, many repent and change and grow. The ending may be predictable, but the path the book takes to that ending is not. I recommend this book to anyone interested in clean, historical fiction.
I ran across this series at the library when I was looking for another book. I decided to give it a shot and was pleasantly surprised. It is a Christian/historical romance series about the Winslow family. I thoroughly enjoyed it and have started on book two in the series. It was written by a man from a man’s point of view which is a refreshing change for me.
this book is really fantastic. The only thing i don’t like is the ending. I think it ended too abruptly and the ending was kinda predictable. I mean come on, we all knew gilbert was going to end up with humility. It could have explained more.
