Book Description

September 1999 Thorndike Press Large Print Christian Fiction
SEASONS OF THE HEART Book 2

I don't know who was most excited that morning when the three of us hoisted packs on our backs and started off down the trail. Just before we disappeared from view of our yard, I turned for one more wave. You woulda thought we were marching off to war or something. I even saw Aunt Lou blow her nose on her white hankie. They all looked glad and sad at the same time happy we were doing something we really wanted to do, anxious that everything would go all right, and a bit sad we were growing up.

On the brink of manhood, Josh was facing important questions about life, about love, about himself.

Product Description

From School Library Journal

ea. vol: CIP. Bethany House. 1987. pap. $5.95; large print pap. $7.95. Grade 7-10 In the first book, Belinda shows tender concern for any injured creature. At 14, she assists her brother, the town doctor, on amputation, birth ing, and burn cases. Wishing to be a boy so that she can become a doctor, she instead sets nursing as a goal. The story ends with a kiss from the boy whose arm was amputated and the promise of another book. Choosing a cousin's wallpaper, planning another cousin's surprise party, and persuading a destitute family to accept help are na ive or sentimental scenes that abound in a thicket of characters from earlier books. Faith is tried and proved in this Christian house on the prairie alterna tive to formula romances. Shura's Jes sica (Scholastic, 1984) includes teen emotions in a well-researched Kansas frontier setting without the jarring col loquial dialect. In The Winds of Au tumn, Josh, 15, spins his family's saga like a Huck Finn on the prairie. Camp ing trip mishaps fill a gap while the boys wait for a new teacher. The teacher's daughter mesmerizes the friends, and tutoring her introduces Josh to her fa ther's private library and the theory of evolution. When his aunt loses her first baby, Josh questions divine benevo lence. A heart-to-heart with Gramps about God's plan causes Josh to resolve his conflicts. Oke's Christian message overwhelms the events.Patricia G. Harrington, Phoenix Public Library

THE WINDS OF AUTUMN

I don't know who was most excited that morning my two buddies and I hoisted packs on our backs and started down the trail. Just before we got out of view of our yard, I turned for one more wave. You woulda thought we were marchin' off to war the way Aunt Lou sobbed into her hankie.

But I reckon we were just growing up.

I'm sure havin' a time of it tryin' to sort out all these new feelings. Lately, my mind keeps slippin' to the new schoolteacher's daughter, Camellia. I could tell right away that Jack Berry was sweet on her, too. But I never coulda predicted the lengths he'd go to steal her affection... --This text refers to the Paperback edition.

It is mainly of a boy growing up on a farm and all of the hardships he encounters along the way of growing up. Aunt Lou, who has played the part of his mother ever since his parents death, is also growing up. I think anyone is interested in reading a wonderful, family related book this is the one.

3.0 out of 5 stars Modest interest in Girls Oct. 4 2011
By Sarah Santana - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback
The camping trip just seemed like a good idea to Joshua. He had no idea that the journey it began would test the convictions and beliefs at the core of who he was.

The Winds of Autumn deals with anger, loss, grief, and forgiveness in a tale that is both heartbreaking and edifying. While the book does contain fighting, injuries, modest interest in girls, awareness of childbirth and death, all appear in a non-graphic manner that is appropriate for all ages. The overriding message is complete submission to God.
