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!

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!

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.

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.

Characterization is one thing you can count on with a House of Winslow book.

The slammar's not normally the best place to find God, but he manages it and turns his life around. But will his faithful wife have him back? Will his children remember him? Can the past be buried by grace or will resentment reign? Find out.
