"Austin capably weaves her intertwined threads and creates believable characters in conflict with themselves and with each other." (Historical Novels Review)
If time had allowed I would have listened to this entire book in one sitting. The performance is breathtaking. I was on the edge of seat and in many moments, yearning to worship God.
Words spoken in season is like a fresh rain.
Too broad of a question. Are you speaking of the Chronicles Series or the many books I've read? This was a very good book. Not as good as the first three of the series but it was still good.
No real favorite.
She's excellent. Loved her performance!
The struggle moved me.
This was a good book or should I say it was necessary to bring in Book 5.
It was an awesome read from a biblical point and at times it was so intriguing that you could sense that you were in fact traveling back in time and participating.
Wonderful mix of Scripture and fiction. The stories really bring the Old Testament world to life. The stories have me digging through Scripture to read the story line as told in the Bible. Any story that entertains and provokes me to search out a deeper understanding of God's Word is a great read!
This book took the story of Manasseh which doesn't say too much in the Bible and wove a story that certainly explains HOW it COULD have been true. I have often wondered at some of the things I have read. Like... how could Manesseh be so bad after his father was good? This weaves a story that certainly answers how a heart could be turned to stone in one lifetime.
I loved how the family was united with Dinah and Hadab, Joshua and Miriam at the end of the book.
When Hadab saw Miriam from afar with the Funeral Cart carrying the body of Joshua.
I really like Hadab. Hope he is continued in the next book.
This author is now my favorite. Wow.... what a story teller with so much research.
I love the actual story but I kept having to remind myself that it is fiction. That being said, it has made me read the Bible more and research more!
The author wove historical events together with teachings from the scriptures in a way that made them both meaningful. The character and plot development added suspense and kept me engaged. I highly recommend this book.
Reading about God's great works. Reading about others moments of great faith and times of less faith.
I don't want to ruin the story for others.
