good book! Aug. 10 2006
By S. Martin - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
Very good--- I've read a lot of Gilbert Morris books and this one wasn't so predictable. It had some depth and leaves you with a nice ending that makes you want to read the next one. After reading several other christian novelists i'd have to say Morris is the best.

One of his best! Nov. 27 2006
By E. Garcia - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
I like Gilbert Morris' books, but he is usually pretty predictable and therefore not my favorite author. This book was really interesting, the plot not so predictable, and generally gave me that "warm, fuzzy feeling". My friend felt the same way and was the one who recommended that I read this book. I enjoyed the fact that the first book in this series did not finish Lanie's story and move on to the next person with the next book. That gets a little old and less believable since real life doesn't move that fast. So basically, I can't WAIT to read the next book in this series! I would say that this is one of his best books. I loved it!

A Touching Story of a Close-Knit Family Sept. 1 2010
By Katie Garvin - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
This book got 5 stars almost from the get-go!! The Homeplace grabbed me from the first few pages, Lanie's character is instantly likable and her selfless attitude is evident from the very beginning. The whole atmosphere of the family was refreshingly enjoyable; they were a very close-knit family.

Since my family is much like that - close-knit - I enjoyed reading about how much they came together when the trials began to come upon them. The writing was filled with so much emotion that I often found myself crying with the characters! (You know it's a good book when you can emotionally feel with the characters in the book!)

Lanie was my favorite character, mainly because of all the trials she readily shouldered for her family when the times got hard. She relied heavily on the Lord to get her through all her troubles, which was such an amazing testimony, even if this is just a fictitious story. Her innocent nature was also extremely appealing, as well as her loving nature of giving and helping others. There was some romance in the book, though it wasn't the prominent part of the book and Lanie - clear and level-headed - dealt with the guys well. ;-) Her other siblings were also very endearing, though Maeva sometimes made me want to shake her - with her stubborn and rebellious attitude, though she cared deeply about her family, just like everyone else.

So, all in all, this is definitely a book that I will pick up again and read! I laughed with the family during the funny moments, cried with them during the sad times, and hurt with them when matters turned from bad to worse. Lanie will definitely be a character I'll remember for a long time to come!!

This book was given to me by Zondervan to review on my blog. This is my own personal thoughts on the book.

Unpredictable Nov. 13 2010
By Amazon Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
This was a wonderful story. Setting during the depression/stock market crash. Story about a family going through some difficult times but has a church, community, and their faith that keeps them going. Could you hold on to your faith under such times. Lanie the main character is 14 years old and she is 17 years old at the end. She is a remarkable young lady who has to grow up pretty fast because of events in the lives of their family. She is the oldest of the children and ends up being mother to them all. Another character enters the picture; a great aunt that stirs things up but was an answer to one of many prayers. There is also a mysterious angel that comes by whenever the family needs money to pay their bank note. Hey, there is even a woman called Butcher Knife Annie...she turns out to be a surprise character. The other siblings are great also; Maeva is a little wild and then there is Cody who events something that brings in enough money to pay their bank note for a while. Davis turns out to be a sweetheart and little Corliss loves her powder can. There are many more characters but boy do I love Dr. Owen Merritt. Forrest Freeman the father is in prison. Now how did that happen. You just need to read this story.

There were a lot of surprises in this story and that kept you wanting to turn the page....what could possibly happen next to this family. I was most amazed at what happens at the local churches; almost like an awakening takes place.

This is a must read and I'm looking forward to reading the next in this series. Gilbert Morris has done it again...got me hooked!!!!
