Book Description

Oct. 15 2000 House of Winslow (Book 24)
When Leah Freeman attends the Fourth of July celebration, she falls in love with the dashing Stuart Winslow, a gifted musician. Despite warnings about his character-and her own misgivings-Leah accepts Stuart's proposal and marries him. Soon Stuart falls back into his old ways, and Leah's love for him is severely tested when he winds up in Tucker Penitentiary. The years in prison take their toll on Stuart until he finally faces up to the truth about his deplorable life. Though he yearns for forgiveness and reconciliation, Stuart faces the possibility that Leah may never be able to trust or love him again. When a man bent on revenge confronts his family, Stuart is forced into a difficult choice that could cost him dearly. Amid the turmoil that swirls about them, Stuart and Leah must learn the secret of true love. (House of Winslow Book 24)

5.0 out of 5 stars Another One for Morris June 14 2001
Format:Paperback
This is another very enjoyable book in the House of Winslow series. The only thing to think about is that the book is enhanced by knowing the family history, starting with the first H of W book. They are well worth reading.

5.0 out of 5 stars A Good Book March 10 2001
Format:Paperback
When I heard that Gilbert Morris was adding another book to the House of Winslow series, I was a little hesitant to pick it up. Because after 23 books I was growing a little weary of this particular series. But my curiosity got the better of me and so I decided to pick it up. I was not disappointed! This is a really good book! It's captivating,thrilling and romantic!! But..... it did remind me of the book, The Scarlet Thread, by Francine Rivers. Although there are major differences it was strangely similar. But I still thought it was a good book, beacuse it was different in its own way. So even if you have read The Scarlet Thread I'd still reccommend this book beacuse its just as good!

5.0 out of 5 stars Another Wonderful book by Gilbert Morris! Dec 9 2000
Format:Paperback
I was again awed at the wonderful work by Gilbert Morris in this 24th book in the House of Winslow series. This series continues to thrill me and make me anxious for the next one. I have read all of these books so far and hope to read the many more Mr. Morris comes out with. Leah decides to marry Stuart Winslow even though her pastor and friends tell her not to. She's a fine Christian, but Stuart has a bad reputation with women. He's too much of a party man and not until it's too late does he realize that. After repeated encounters with his wife (a few years after their married) he goes out to have a good time, which lands him in Tucker Prison. For about 7 years, he endures life behind bars. A few years after being in prison, he comes to accept Jesus as his Lord and Savior. When he finally gets out of prison, he realizes how much he's lost and is about to lose. Can he win the trust and respect back of his wife and father and children? And if he does, will the terms of his pardon get in the way? Find out in this thrilling and enchanting new addition to The House of Winslow series! Enjoy! I thouroughly recomend this book!

4.0 out of 5 stars One of the best in the series Sept. 19 2005
By Christina Lockstein - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback
Morris does a great job of integrating the new Winslow family line into this story, and while some spots in the plot are weak, I really loved the characters of Stuart and Leah. This book has a lot to say about forgiveness and hard hearts. The Christian theme in this book isn't as preachy as in the last few, and the powerful message that God can change anyone is emphasized over and over. The only disappointment was that the bad guys didn't "get theirs", but I guess that is true to life. Great love story, strong characters, enjoyable plot.
