Description

Series: Thorndike Press Large Print Christian Fiction. The vast majority of Christian and even some genres of secular fiction are written by women, and I often find men don't capture women's voices well. However, Chris Fabry surprised me with Looking Into You.

Series: Thorndike Press Large Print Christian Fiction. He gives Paige, Treha, and other female characters relatable and multifaceted voices without crossing into the maudlin. His plot is tightly woven and written just sparingly enough to keep the pages turning. A premise of a regretful mother and abandoned daughter could easily turn into a Lifetime movie script.

This book begins with more than one family before the Civil War - separated & roughly 4-5 chapters for each - so you will know about each - and yes they all come together eventually. I like how they are separated which makes better reading and understanding of each.
--- I want to state that this is the 1st story about Amish where they actually process that Jesus Christ is Lord and how to come to Him. ---
I did skim over parts of it but that is because I have read so many Civil War stories. Yet I will state that this was not one of those where there was a lot of looting and burning a town (That was only mentioned once in this book)
This book is about Yancy (part Indian) but also about Thomas "Stonewall" Jackson before & during the Civil War - stories of love, loss, Yancy being injured & then his re-remembering and the ending contains Stonewall's dying. (which was the sadness part). But the book does end with happiness.

Starts out as a story about a half breed Indian boy trying to fit into another culture than the one he spent his first 9 years in. Going from a very free society to one with many rules. As he grows he find it difficult to merge with his father's people so he gos to VMI amilitary school. While it has rule it also is for warriors and he enjoys the other boys & military training. Now the story takes a turn with the introduction of Major Thomas Jackson an eccentric teacher of artillery. He is loved by the boys and when the Civil War breaks out the senior class follows him into the Confererate army. He becomes General Stonewall Jackson. As our hero follows Jackson he finishes growing up and falls in love with a Virginia girl who has a brother fighting for the North. Her whole family supports the North but love Virginia also. As he goes from battle to batt he makes a decision letting go of his mother's god and rejecting the hard rules of the Amish, he give is live over to Jesus.

I found this book entertaining because it had many stories intertwined with each other. It started with a Indian boy and his father who were cast out of the village and then going to an Amish settlement where his father had grown up. The rest of the book was fascinating because of the history of the war between the states and the life of a young man that became a Lieutenant in Stonewall Jackson's army and who became a Christian when he was facing certain death when he tried to help a union soldier. It also has a love story that was realistic and gratifying as to the way it turned out.

So many historical novels are mostly romance novels with a bit of history woven through them. Not this one! Yes, there is romance in it, but it also helps the reader see into the heart of the man "Stonewall" Jackson. I had read Civil War histories, but this book challenged the reader to see the people of both sides somewhat trapped by their geographical upbringing and loyalties that had nothing to do with slavery. As in all wars, there were many brave and compassionate "innocents" involved.

Really enjoyed this book. Wonderful characters in a setting I only knew bits and pieces about. Slow start but then it took off and I couldn't put it down. Got bogged down just a little in the description of various officers and locations but kept the thread of the story upper most.

I have read Mr. Morris's House of Winslow series and I am Never disappointed. Here is yet again another of his fabulous historical fiction books that admonishes our need for God without being preachy. He is probably the most inciteful writer I have ever read.

The author is at his best in this historical novel about the civil war. The insights about the complexity of the conflict and in particular the person of Stonewall Jackson were haunting and memorable.
It was fairly well written, but a bit long in some parts with descriptions and things that had little to do with the main story. A bit weak in story telling at the end where summing up the action at the end.
