Thank youI can't thank Mr. Morris for following God's direction in writing these books. Not only do they keep one's interest, most importantly they teach God's truths and builds faith.
In the first few chapters I almost gave up on reading this book.It was beginning to turn into into another "dull" romance story.However I decided to keep reading it and I am so glad I did.A not so perfect relationship,about forgiveness and suffering.I enjoyed the era in which the story was set in also.I may buy the other books in the Winslow series.
I have enjoyed reading this series. It helps me learn a lot about the time in history when our country was just being formed. It was easier to keep up with the characters this time, but I was amazed at how much chronological time Gilbert Morris squeezed into this one book. I think he could have made two books from this one and added a lot more detail.
I liked book 2 of this series. I was disappointed at first that the second book started off a generation later than when book 1 ended. I felt a bit gypped because I felt I had missed the growing up of a whole generation. I also felt I missed a lot of information regarding the growth of the New World. Good read though.
3.5 stars. From a friendship with John Bunyan (the author of Pilgrim’s Progress) to the Salem Witch Trials, the Winslow family continues to hold fervently to their religious freedom. I really like the history of this series, but there is something about the author’s writing style that bugs me.
Excellent Christian author
A Good ReadNot sure I enjoyed this book as well as the first in the series, but it was entertaining, and she’d light on the witch trials in Salem.
I read these books with my elderly mother, who enjoyed them immensely. They are good stories for those looking for G-rated historical romance novels with a dose of Christianity thrown in.
This book has 3 settings, Bedford in 1659, Plymouth in 1675, and Salem in 1691.The story starts with Martha pointing Matthew Winslow out to Catherine. Catherine thought he probably had a big head & wouldn't be much in Boston. Martha thought that it was like witchcraft the way he found pretty women. Cathrine Brent is Marthha's cousin visiting from Boston, and Matthew hopes her stay will not be short. Although she thrilled when he kissed her hand, she said there wasn't much to interest her in this...
Well, as historical fiction goes, it isn't bad.GM just has a really boring writing style, a one-book-author. You notice it more after reading more of his works, and how similar they all are, with the same dumb jokes. His plots, in this book, are short and don't overlap. There is nothing that ties the end to the beginning, much. GM knows his style is dull, I think, for his characters all speak with WAY too many exclamation points.I will admit his Biblical values in his characters, and his use of
The sequel to "The Honorable Imposter". It is a great story and keeps you intrested till the end. It will make you laugh and cry and you won't be able to put it down till its done. Rachel will inspire you to be as strong as her and brave. In the face of the death she stood strong for her faith and would not waver that God would save her and those with her. But with her stengths she is still on the level of human in her bitterness with her father who had been astranged and thought dead. She and h...
Praises!As we read about the characters in this book, we can see the good and bad we all have within us. We see the difference in a life totally surrendered to God, and one of half hearted belief. We are able to understand the strength and power we receive in living our lives committed to the Lord's will.
this book was good and interesting. It starts out with a family of two the husband gets in jail and later agrees with the law and runs away to africa. Meanwhile his wife found out which ship he was going on and she found out it sunk. So she thinks he is dead but.......
This series by Gilbert Morris is one of my absolute favorites. Each book follows at least one member of a generation in the Winslow family tree and the member(s) gets saved and finds true love. There's also some commentary on the social conditions of the time frame. Truly interesting.
I'd read Morris's Appomattox series which I liked very much, but I found this book disappointing. Three generations with 3 different stories in such a short book did not allow for enough depth of characters. The story line was good but would have been better as a series of 3 books.
An interesting story, although I did not like it quite as well as the first book in the series.

I enjoy the history through fiction. It spans a lot of time through these series, so sometimes I feel it lacks plot and detail. It was alright and kept me entertained enough to finish.
i love the story behind this book
Story sent in MA just after Pilgrims arrived. Different, but not too compelling.
This book is basically covering the Salem Witch Trials.
Awesome! Read this umpteen years ago. Loved it!
good mix of history and fiction keep going in series
I read this so long ago I can't remember my first impression. However i will say I throughly enjoy all the house of Winslow books. I read almost all
love this series of christian fiction
Still not sure about this series of books. It was hard to put down.
My library requested this one for me instead of Ashe's version.... I looked at it. Not interested in reading this one.
So, I tried to give it a second chance and found it boring still. :( I decided I wouldn't go on with the series because I just can't get into it.
