Book Description

Feb. 15 2002 House of Winslow (Book 27)
The Roaring Twenties Come to Life!

Amelia Winslow and her brother, Phillip, create new lives for themselves in New York during the exciting but dangerous Roaring Twenties. Against her familiy's wishes, Amelia becomes a nightclub singer with hopes of starring on Broadway. Owing her success to a gangster, she refuses to listen to the pleas of those concerned with her safety.

While Phil pursues his dream of college and a career in law, he makes his family proud as an assistant district attorney. But he finds himself in love with someone who could put his future in jeopardy.

Amelia and Philip become more and more entangled in a precarious underworld. Unless they can find a way out, they may be destroyed by their own most cherished dreams.

4.0 out of 5 stars Full of surprises and adventure March 14 2002
Format:Paperback
I find it interesting that the more recent House of Winslow novels often include more than one branch of the Winslow family tree. This story is mainly about Phillip and Amelia, adult children of Andrew Winslow, who is the son of Mark Winslow, the oldest son of Sky and Rebekah Winslow. As they pursue their chosen careers, both find themselves involved with the family of Big Tony Marino, a notorious gangster who, ironically, really loves his own family. Phil falls in love with Big Tony's daughter, and Amelia gets her first job as a nightclub singer with the help of Dom Costello, Big Tony's assistant/bodyguard.
Phil gets his first good job with the help of Lee Novak, another grandson of Sky Winslow, and later becomes the District Attorney's assistant. Also making a return appearance is Wes Winslow (see "The Amazon Quest #25) on a photography assignment for someone who is writing about New York. This is an action-packed story that you'll find difficult to put down!

4.0 out of 5 stars One of the best in the series Oct. 6 2005
By Christina Lockstein - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback
Morris rebounds from a weak streak with this entry in the House of Winslow series. Amelia as a woman who loves her family but can't help rebelling against them and God is like so many people. Phil's growing relationship with the Morino family is a little farfetched, but enjoyable. It was good that Morris handled the family evenly, it's too easy to make them a caricature. He still has the odd habit of overdescribing character's outfits, especially in odd places. I'm looking forward to the next book in the series.

I had read other Gilbert Morris books, liked how he wrote. His stories have a Christian theme, and adventure. His books generally leave me with an uplifted feeling. He generally has some nuggets of life messages.

I liked it that there were selfish, worldly, girls and criminals in this book, who heard that Jesus died for their sin. Well done, Gilbert Morris!
